Cosart H 50/12.50 mg treats high blood pressure. It is also effective at lowering the risk of strokes in patients with high blood pressure and an enlarged heart. Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent kidney problems, strokes, and heart attacks. This medicine contains active ingredients, namely losartan and hydrochlorothiazide. Losartan is an angiotensin receptor blocker that relaxes blood vessels to allow blood to flow more easily. Hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic that makes more urine, making the kidneys more water and salt. This also helps to reduce blood pressure.

— Hypersensitive to other sulfonamide-derived substances
