Hi! I had gone through your query and understand your concern. Repace is a trade name for Losartan. Losartan belongs to a group of drugs called angiotensin II receptor antagonists. It keeps blood vessels from narrowing, which lowers blood pressure and improves blood flow. Losartan is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). The treatment fer high blood pressure hypertension is a long term treatment and your father should continue taking this drug for a long time because hypertension is a chronic disease and need to be treated all his life.
Hope I was able to help you. Take care. Dr.Rovena
