High blood pressure and heart failure Candesartan Cilexetil Atacand

Uses
Atacand (Candesartan Cilexetil) is prescribed to reduce high blood pressure, and to improve the efficiency of the heart's ability to pump blood in patients affected by heart failure. This drug is a type of angiotensin II receptor antagonist.

Its method of action involves inhibiting the actions of the substances that cause the blood vessels to narrow, while also blocking the action of a hormone called aldosterone in the kidneys. This hormone allows the kidneys to retain water and salt, thereby increasing the volume of fluid in the blood vessels. Blocking its action reduces the fluid in the blood vessels, which in turn contributes to a reduction in high blood pressure.

Dosage and Administration
Patients being treated with Atacand (Candesartan Cilexetil) tablets will be prescribed a dosage considered by the prescribing doctor to be sufficient. All directions given by your doctor must be followed strictly. If you are an adult patient treating hypertension, it is possible that you will be told to take 16mg per day at first. This may then be adjusted by your doctor, and you may be directed to take 8mg to 32mg per day. Treatment of other conditions, such as congestive heart failure will require a different dosage.

Side effects
Taking Atacand (Candesartan Cilexetil) to treat high blood pressure or other conditions may cause side effects, and a list of possible reactions is provided here:

  • Vertigo

  • Fatigue
  • Pain noticeable in the back or joints
  • Symptoms similar to that of a cold, such as a runny nose

Patients must report all side effects to their doctor. Other serious reactions requiring immediate medical care include hyperkalaemia, chest infections, low blood pressure in patients treating heart failure, urinating less than usual and fainting. This list is not complete, and there is still a possibility of other reactions occurring.

Precautions
Patients with a history of disease affecting the liver, kidneys or heart must clearly state this to their doctor before taking this medicine.

This drug must not be used during pregnancy. In addition to this, women who may become pregnant must ensure that a pregnancy does not occur, and are advised to discuss the use of reliable contraception with their doctor.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.
