Describe Candesartan.

Candesartan, a medication used to treat excessive blood pressure and impaired cardiac muscle function, is a member of the class of drugs known as angiotensin II receptor antagonists.

The action of Candesartan

Candesartan works by relaxing the blood vessels, which makes it easier for blood to flow through them. Additionally, it makes it simpler for your heart to circulate blood throughout your entire body.

What advantages come with taking Candesartan?

Heart issues or high blood pressure (also known as hypertension) can be caused by a variety of things, including a family history, a salt-rich diet, being overweight, or not exercising enough.

It is frequently advised to take medicine, such as Candesartan, to treat the diseases in order to prevent more serious illnesses such as stroke, heart attack, or blood clots. These lifestyle modifications include quitting smoking and/or consuming less alcohol and increasing physical activity.

What is Candesartan used for?

Only those who have a prescription may use Candesartan. Always read the patient information sheet included in the drug packaging and abide by your doctor’s recommendations.

With or without food, consume the tablets whole along with a glass of water. To make sure you remember, take it at the same time every day.

Dose for Candesartan

The active element in Candesartan is Candesartan cilexetil, which is available in tablet dosages of 2 mg, 4 mg, 8 mg, 16 mg, or 32 mg.

One 8mg tablet used once a day is the usual starting dose; if your doctor feels you require more, they may raise it. If you have liver or kidney issues, as well as depending on your age or weight, a somewhat lower starting dose might be recommended. If you’re using Candesartan to treat heart failure rather than high blood pressure, the dosage will also alter slightly.

You should skip the missed dose of Candesartan and immediately start taking the following one if you forget to take it. Do not increase your dose to make up for a missing one, but also do not be alarmed.

If you take more Candesartan than is recommended, see the nearest emergency room or doctor right away.

Side effects and safety measures

You must always speak with your doctor before beginning Candesartan. Candesartan should not be taken if you have any of the following conditions:

  • you are sensitive to any of the other substances in this medication, including candesartan cilexetil.
  • you are past the third month of pregnancy.
  • either biliary blockage or serious liver disease affects you.
  • the patient is a little child, less than a year old.
  • you use an aliskiren-containing blood pressure medication and have diabetes or poor renal function.

You should let your doctor know if any of the following apply so they can consider how they may influence your Candesartan prescription:

  • have issues with the heart, liver, or kidneys, or get dialysis
  • recently undergone kidney transplant
  • have diarrhea, significant recent vomiting, or are vomiting
  • possess the condition Conn’s syndrome, which affects the adrenal gland.
  • the blood pressure is low
  • are using additional high blood pressure medications
  • ever experienced a stroke
  • are taking additional medications to address their heart failure.

Candesartan, like many drugs having active components, can have an impact on or interact with other drugs. You might encounter this with certain drugs, such as the following:

  • Additional medications to reduce your blood pressure
  • Nsaids, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAIDs)
  • Aspirin (if you are taking more than 3g each day)
  • Potassium-containing salt alternatives or supplements
  • Heparin (a medicine for thinning the blood)
  • Drinking tablets (diuretics)
  • Lithium (a medication for mental health disorders) (a medicine for mental health problems)
  • Additional drugs to treat heart failure.

You should let your doctor know if you take any of the aforementioned drugs so that they can recommend whether or not Candesartan is the best treatment option for you.

You should combine your medication with some lifestyle modifications, such eating properly, exercising frequently, and abstaining from excessive smoking or drinking, just like everyone else who has high blood pressure or heart failure.

Alcohol consumption while taking Candesartan should be avoided because it may cause you to feel lightheaded or faint. While you are taking this medicine, your doctor may also order routine blood pressure, renal function, and blood testing.

Candesartan’s most frequent negative effects include:

  • Feeling lightheaded or dizzy
  • Headache
  • Breathing infection
  • Reduced blood pressure
  • A higher potassium level in your blood
  • Effects on how your kidneys function, particularly if you already have heart failure or kidney disease.

Inform your doctor straight away if you do encounter one or more of these side effects and they continue or get worse. Additionally, you must get in touch with your doctor if you experience any severe side effects, including as breathing issues, facial swelling, or extreme skin reactions.
