Thanks for writing in.
Losar- Beta is a combination of two drugs - Losartan
and Atenelol. Atenelol and Metoprolol
both come in the same family of drugs called beta blockers. Since your blood pressure was 160/100 your local physician would have thought to start you on two medications instead of one and he is right. systolic BP >160 mm Hg is stage 2 hypertension
and hence two medications may be required. I think Losar-beta is the right medication for you and you must continue it.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help
