Hyzaar Drug Info
Hyzaar® (losartan potassium-hydrochlorothiazide) is a blood pressure medication that is available by prescription only. It is a combination of two drugs -- Cozaar® and hydrochlorothiazide -- which work to relax the blood vessels and remove more salt and water from the blood. Hyzaar comes in the form of a tablet that is taken once a day. Dizziness, cough, and low potassium are some of the most common side effects.
Prior to beginning treatment with Hyzaar, review the drug's safety information with your healthcare provider. Drug interactions are possible, so your healthcare provider needs a complete list of all other medicines you are taking. In addition, you may need to avoid potassium supplements during treatment.
