Uses
Atacand (Candesartan Cilexetil) works by preventing the narrowing of blood vessels. It is used as a treatment for patients affected by hypertension (high blood pressure), congestive heart failure and kidney damage triggered by type 2 diabetes. This medicine lowers blood pressure by reducing resistance and pressure in the blood vessels.

It functions as an angiotensin II antagonist, and inhibits certain receptors inside the body, thereby preventing angiontensin II from stimulating the release of aldosterone and tightening the arteries. This in turn can contribute to lower blood pressure. Heart failure is caused when the efficiency at which blood is pumped around the body is reduced. This medicine works for heart failure, as the decreased pressure inside the blood vessels reduces the workload on the heart.

Dosage and Administration
Atacand (Candesartan Cilexetil) comes in the form of 32mg tablets for oral administration. Generally, the dosage will be individualized by the doctor in charge of providing medical treatment, and in many cases, the dosage will vary from patient to patient. The adult dosage for high blood pressure is usually different to that required for the treatment of congestive heart failure. It is common for the doctor to make adjustments to the dosage for maintenance treatment, however patients must not change their dosage unless following the instructions provided by their doctor.
