Irbesartan

Irbesartan is an oral prescription drug indicated for the treatment of:

  • High blood pressure with no known cause or essential hypertension
  • Kidney disease caused by diabetes type 2 and high blood pressure

Irbesartan is an angiotensin II receptor antagonist or ARB. It blocks the action of angiotensin receptors found in many tissues soft the body. Angiotensin causes the narrowing of the blood vessels which can lead to high blood pressure. It also causes the kidney to retain water and salt which increases the volume of fluid circulating around the body adding up to the blood pressure.

Irbesartan helps lower the blood pressure by widening the blood vessels so blood can flow easily into the heart. It allows the kidney to remove excess salt and water from the blood to lessen the resistance and pressure in the blood vessels. 

Why Buy Irbesartan?

Irbesartan is FDA-approved for the treatment of high blood pressure since 1997. It is a good blood pressure-lowering medication that protects the kidney with fewer side effects. It helps lower the risk of stroke and heart attack that’s why it’s recommended for patients with heart failure. It works like ACE inhibitor but it doesn’t have side effects like facial swelling and coughing. Irbesartan is available as generic and several brand names. Irbesartan is Available here.

How to Take Irbesartan?

Take Irbesartan exactly as directed. The typical dose in treating patients with high blood pressure is 75 mg to 300 mg a day. For patients with diabetes type 2, the dose is 300 mg a day.

Take it with or without food. Swallow the tablet whole with a drink of water. Take it at around the same time each day. For a missed dose, take it as soon as you remember.

  • Irbesartan is not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women and children under 18 years of age. If you become pregnant while taking these medications call your doctor right away.
  • Use Irbesartan with care among patients with:
    • Decreased kidney and liver functions
    • Inadequate blood flow to the heart
    • Severe heart failure
    • Heart valve disease
    • A kidney failure
  • Patients with kidney problems and heart failure must have a regular blood test to monitor the level of creatinine and potassium in the blood.
  • If you are taking any other medications, inform your doctor. Combining Irbesartan with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs among patients with poor kidney function may result in kidney failure.
  • Do not stop taking Irbesartan without talking to your doctor. Doing so may result in a sudden increase in blood pressure, stroke or heart attack.
