INTRODUCTION

NUSAR is a combination of Atenolol and Losartan which belongs to the group of medicines called Antihypertensive agents. It is used to treat hypertension. Hypertension (also known as high blood pressure) is a medical condition in which the force of the blood exerted against the walls of the artery remains very high, and as a result it may lead to severe damage to the blood vessels supplying several vital organs, such as heart, kidney, or brain.

Atenolol is a beta-blocker. It slows down the heartbeat and makes the heart to pump blood with a lesser force. Losartan is an angiotensin-II receptor blocker. It relaxes the blood vessels by blocking the actions of a hormone called angiotensin-II that increases blood pressure. Collectively they make the heart to pump blood more smoothly with less pressure.

Before taking NUSAR inform your doctor if you have any kidney problems. You must also inform your doctor if you have diabetes or are severely dehydrated. During treatment with NUSAR your doctor will constantly monitor your electrolyte profile and kidney functions to avoid the risk of side effects.
