Drug Class and Mechanism
Atacand is an angiotensin II receptor blocker. It works by helping to relax blood vessels. This helps to lower blood pressure.
If you miss a dose of Atacand , take it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at once.
Store at the room temperature away from moisture and sunlight. Keep out of the reach of children.
Do not use Atacand if:
you are allergic to any ingredient in Atacand;
you are pregnant.
Contact your doctor or health care provider right away if any of these apply to you.
Do not drive or perform other possibly unsafe tasks until you know how you react to it.
Your blood pressure should be lower within 2 weeks. It may take 4 to 6 weeks for Atacand to produce its maximum effect.
Patients who take medicine for high blood pressure often feel tired or run down for a few weeks after starting treatment. Be sure to take your medicine even if you may not feel "normal." Tell your doctor if you develop any new symptoms.
Lifestyle changes (eg, not smoking, weight loss, exercise, a low-salt diet) may also help to lower blood pressure.
Tell your doctor or dentist that you take Atacand before you receive any medical or dental care, emergency care, or surgery.
Lab tests, including blood pressure monitoring, may be performed while you use Atacand . These tests may be used to monitor your condition or check for side effects. Be sure to keep all doctor and lab appointments.
Use Atacand with caution in the elderly; they may be more sensitive to its effects, especially kidney problems, low blood pressure, or high blood potassium levels.
Atacand should be used with extreme caution in children; safety and effectiveness in children have not been confirmed.
