Lotensin HCT

Effects of Lotensin HCT

A blood pressure reading consists of two numbers -- for example: 120/80. The top number is known as the systolic blood pressure and the bottom number is the diastolic blood pressure. During clinical studies in people taking Lotensin HCT, both systolic and diastolic blood pressure decreased significantly.
 
By lowering blood pressure, Lotensin HCT can decrease the risk of developing health problems, such as a heart attack or stroke, that can result from long-term high blood pressure (see Effects of High Blood Pressure).
