Hyzaar is a combination medication used in the treatment of high blood pressure. One component losartan belongs to a new class of blood pressure medications that work by preventing the hormone angiotensin II from constricting the blood vessels thus allowing blood to flow more freely and keeping the blood pressure down. The other component hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic that increases the output of urine removing excess fluid from the body and thus lowering blood pressure.

Hyzaar comes in two strengths 50-12.5 (50 milligrams of losartan and 12.5 milligrams of hydrochlorothiazide) and 100-25 (a double dose of each component). The usual starting dose is one 50-12.5 tablet per day.

If your blood pressure does not respond to this dose after about 3 weeks the doctor may increase the dose to two 50-12.5 tablets once daily or one 100-25 tablet a day.
