Advice

following an abbreviated submission:

losartan 100mg / hydrochlorothiazide 12.5mg tablet (Cozaar-Comp 100/12.5) is accepted for use within NHS Scotland for the treatment of hypertension in patients whose blood pressure is not adequately controlled on hydrochlorothiazide or losartan monotherapy.

In patients for whom this combination of antihypertensive agents is appropriate, it allows more flexible dosing than previously available combination products. This fixed dose combination is one of many options for the treatment of hypertension, including other less expensive angiotensin receptor blocker/diuretic combinations
