T Diuretics are known to increase uric acid levels and, occasionally, to precipitate a gout attack in susceptible patients. Drugs that increase renal blood flow are known to have a slight uricosuric effect. Thus, in general, the addition of an ARB to a diuretic will lower uric acid to some extent. However, in contrast to all other ARBs, losartan has been shown to have a distinct hypouricemic effect. #*/"5*0/5)&3"1: t hyperuricemic effect of the diuretic. 5 mg and 100 mg/25 mg). Thus, in a patient whose baseline uric acid is at the upper limit of normal, losartan may be the preferred ARB to add to HCTZ.

The above considerations make it clear that the most important rationale for combining two drugs into one pill is to increase efficacy and, to a lesser extent, diminish adverse effects.
