Is losartan a beta blocker? How does losartan potassium work in the body?
Losartan is not a beta blocker. It is from a class of medications called Angiotensin-Receptor Blockers(ARBs). ARBs lower blood pressure by cause blood vessels in the body to relax and that lowers blood pressure. ARBs may also effect electrolytes like potassium and sodium.
Please ask me a pharmacy related question if you’d like.
