Please suggest. Can we use coversyl plus tab as substitute for losartan potassium hydrochlorothiazide?

2 Doctors Answered
Yes.
Coversyl Plus HD Tablet is a combination of two medicines: Perindopril and indapamide which lower blood pressure effectively. Perindopril is an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor. It works by reducing stress on the heart and relaxing blood vessels so that blood flows more smoothly and the heart can pump blood more efficiently. Indapamide is a diuretic that removes extra water and certain electrolytes from the body. Over time it also relaxes blood vessels and improves blood flow. We cannot say Losartan is a substitute for it even though losar also is an antihypertensive medicine.
