Atacand (Candesartan) Product Information

Candesartan is an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB). It can also be prescribed to treat high blood pressure, so that heart attacks, strokes and kidney disease are prevented. Candesartan stops blood vessels from constricting and this helps to lower your blood pressure, and blood flow is also enhanced.

Atacand (Candesartan) Medication Information

Uses

Atacand is an angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB) indicated for: 

  • Treatment of hypertension in adults and children 1 to < 17 years of age, to lower blood pressure. Lowering blood pressure reduces the risk of fatal and non-fatal cardiovascular events, primarily strokes and myocardial infarctions. 
  • Treatment of heart failure (NYHA class II-IV); Atacand reduces cardiovascular death and heart failure hospitalization

Dosage

There are oral tablets available in several different strengths:

  • 4 mg
  • 8 mg
  • 16 mg
  • 32 mg

Side Effects

The most common side effects of Atacand include:

  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Hypotension
  • Abnormal renal function
  • Hyperkalemia 

Speak with your doctor or pharmacist for a full list of side effects that applies to you.

Precautions

Observe for signs and symptoms of hypotension. Symptomatic hypotension is most likely to occur in patients who have been volume and/or salt depleted as a result of prolonged diuretic therapy, dietary salt restriction, dialysis, diarrhea, or vomiting.

Monitor renal function and potassium levels. Changes in renal function including acute renal failure can be caused by drugs that inhibit the renin-angiotensin system. Drugs that inhibit the renin-angiotensin system can cause hyperkalemia.

Some of the common drug interactions with Atacand:

  • Aliskiren
  • Lithium
  • NSAIDs
  • ARBs

For a more complete list speak with your doctor or pharmacist

  • Atacand can cause you to feel dizzy or tired. Do not drive, operate machinery, or do other dangerous activities until you know how Atacand affects you.
