Ach Candesartan How to Take

Candesartan belongs to a family of medications known as angiotensin II receptor blockers. It is used to lower high blood pressure in adults and children over 6 years of age, and to treat heart failure in adults. It works by relaxing blood vessels.

Angiotensin II is a chemical that the body releases to cause the constriction of blood vessels. Candesartan blocks the action of angiotensin II, resulting in the relaxation of the blood vessels. This relaxation causes the blood pressure to decrease. It takes about 2 weeks for Ach Candesartan to begin lowering blood pressure, and about 4 weeks for it to reach its full effect.

Ach Candesartan may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Ach Candesartan may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Ach Candesartan may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Ach Candesartan for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Ach Candesartan, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Ach Candesartan without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Ach Candesartan to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Ach Candesartan if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Ach Candesartan Dosage

For adults with high blood pressure, the usual recommended starting dose of candesartan is 16 mg once daily. Reductions in blood pressure are often seen within 2 weeks, and the full effects on blood pressure are seen in about 4 weeks. Your doctor may decide to increase the dose to 32 mg once a day if your blood pressure has not decreased enough. A diuretic (water pill) may also be added to help reduce blood pressure.

For children with high blood pressure, the dose of candesartan is based on body weight. The usual starting dose for children weighing less than 50 kg is 4 mg once daily. This dose may be increased to a maximum daily dose of 8 mg. For children weighing more than 50 kg, the usual starting dose is 8 mg once daily. This dose may be increased to a maximum daily dose of 16 mg.

For adults with heart failure the usual recommended starting dose of candesartan is 4 mg once daily. Depending on how well you tolerate the medication, the dose may be doubled every 2 weeks to a maximum daily dose of 32 mg.

Candesartan should be taken at approximately the same time each day, with or without food.

Ach Candesartan Precautions

There may be an interaction between candesartan and any of the following:

If you are taking any of these medications, speak with your doctor or pharmacist. Depending on your specific circumstances, your doctor may want you to:

  • stop taking one of the medications,
  • change one of the medications to another,
  • change how you are taking one or both of the medications, or
  • leave everything as is.

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with this medication. Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.

Ach Candesartan Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use this medication.

Drowsiness/reduced alertness: Candesartan may cause drowsiness or dizziness, affecting your ability to drive or operate machinery. Avoid these and other hazardous tasks until you have determined how this medication affects you.

Kidney problems: Candesartan can cause changes to kidney function that may result in decreased kidney function, kidney failure, or possibly death. Certain people have experienced changes in kidney function (e.g., people with narrowed blood vessels in their kidneys, or those with severe Congestive Heart Failure). The use of diuretics (water pills), nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), or aliskiren may further increase the risk of kidney problems for people already at risk. If you have reduced kidney function, renal artery stenosis (narrowing of blood vessels in the kidneys), or congestive heart failure, discuss with your doctor how Ach Candesartan may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Ach Candesartan, and whether any special monitoring is needed. If you have reduced kidney function, you may require lower doses of Ach Candesartan.

Ach Candesartan should not be taken by people with severely decreased kidney function.

Liver function: Candesartan is removed from the body by the liver. Rarely, it may cause liver problems. If you have liver disease or decreased liver function, discuss with your doctor how Ach Candesartan may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Ach Candesartan, and whether any special monitoring is needed.

If you experience symptoms of liver problems such as fatigue, feeling unwell, loss of appetite, nausea, yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes, dark urine, pale stools, abdominal pain or swelling, and itchy skin, contact your doctor immediately.

Low Blood Pressure: Occasionally, a larger-than-expected decrease in blood pressure occurs after taking candesartan. In some cases, this happens after the first dose. It is more likely to occur if you take diuretics or the medication aliskiren, have a reduced salt intake, are on dialysis, or are experiencing diarrhea or vomiting. Blood pressure should be monitored more often in these situations. Those with low blood pressure or those just starting to take Ach Candesartan should move slowly from a reclining to an upright position to reduce the risk of dizziness.

Potassium levels: Ach Candesartan may affect potassium levels in the blood, especially when used for heart failure, or when taken with other medications called ACE inhibitors or diuretics such as Spironolactone. Your doctor will monitor your potassium levels while on Ach Candesartan. Avoid using salt substitutes that contain potassium while you are taking candesartan.

Pregnancy: Candesartan may cause severe harm to a fetus and should not be used during pregnancy. If you discover you are pregnant while taking Ach Candesartan, stop taking it and tell your doctor at once.

Women taking candesartan who are planning or trying to become pregnant should discuss other, more appropriate medications to control blood pressure with their doctor.

Breast-feeding: It is not known if candesartan passes into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are taking Ach Candesartan, it may affect your baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.

Children: The safety and effectiveness of using Ach Candesartan have not been established for the treatment of hypertension in children less than 6 years of age and for the treatment of heart failure in children less than 18 years of age.
