Inspra Indication

Inspra (Eplerenone) belongs to a group of medications called aldosterone antagonists. It is used in combination with other medications to treat heart failure and help prevent worsening heart failure after a Heart Attack, thereby improving the chances of survival.

It is also used along with other medications to treat mild-to-moderate high blood pressure, when other medications are not tolerated or have reduced your blood pressure enough.

Inspra (Eplerenone) works by blocking aldosterone, a substance the body makes that helps control blood pressure. High levels of aldosterone increase blood pressure and may contribute to heart failure. Blocking aldosterone helps prevent heart failure from worsening.

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

Your doctor may have suggested Inspra (Eplerenone) 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 Inspra (Eplerenone), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Inspra (Eplerenone) without consulting your doctor.

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

For treating high blood pressure, the starting dose of Inspra (Eplerenone) is 50 mg taken once daily. If your blood pressure has not come down enough after 4 weeks, your doctor may increase the dose of Inspra (Eplerenone) to 50 mg taken two times a day.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications.
