The active ingredient in Avapro is irbesartan. Irbesartan slows down the production of vasopressin and aldosterone in your body. Vasopressin is a hormone in your body that constricts blood vessels, and it also tells your body to retain water. Aldosterone is another hormone in your body that regulates blood pressure and also helps the body retain water. Avapro is also one of the leading brand products in combating high blood pressure. It is not only used to lower blood pressure, it is also sometimes used to treat kidney issues in people who have type II diabetes.
Your doctor will explain exactly how and when to take Avapro. You should take Irbesartan exactly as he or she directs you to take it. Typically, the drug is taken daily and at the same time every day. It can be taken with or without food. Your doctor may have prescribed Avapro 150 mg as an initial dose. It is normal for your doctor to increase your dosage to 300 mg daily if it is required. If you forget to take a dose, simply wait until your next dose (next day). Do not double dose. If you take a double dose go to an emergency room or contact a poison control center immediately, even if you feel fine. Finally, inform your doctor before you stop taking Irbesartan.
Possible side effects accompany all medications.
Dizziness or dizzy spells are very common when first taking Avapro. You can help reduce the effect of your dizziness by getting up very slowly if you are sitting or laying down. Avapro can also cause abnormal blood test results, which your doctor will interpret. If any of these side effects become severe talk to your doctor immediately. Besides these possible side effects, Irbesartan will work to effectively lower your blood pressure.
Your doctor may have prescribed Avapro for you if you are an adult with high blood pressure. High blood pressure has nothing to do with your personality. It is a condition where your arteries are stressed from the force of blood that your heart is producing. Your doctor may also have prescribed Irbesartan for you if you have type II diabetes. This drug should not be taken by anyone who is allergic or hypersensitive to any of its ingredients. Do not take Irbesartan if you are a pregnant woman, or if you are nursing an infant. You should also avoid taking Avapro if you are taking any medications that contain aliskiren. Medications that contain aliskiren are commonly taken by people who are treating diabetes. Speak to your doctor if you are unsure, or if you have any questions or concerns.
