How Does It Work?
Losartan is an angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB) that works by blocking the effect of angiotensin II in the body that causes blood vessels to constrict.
As a result, losartan relaxes the blood vessels, which lowers blood pressure and increases the heart’s supply of blood and oxygen.
