LOSARTAN/HYDROCHLOROTHIAZIDE

Hyzaar (Losartan / Hydrochlorothiazide) is a combination medicine that lowers your blood pressure. Hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic that removes extra water from your body. Losartan is an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) that relaxes your blood vessels to lower you blood pressure and allow more blood and oxygen to get to your heart and other organs. Source: Iodine

This database lists about 447,000 of those providers who wrote 50 or more prescriptions for at least one drug that year. More than three-fourths of these prescriptions went to patients 65 and older; the rest were for disabled patients. Methodology »
