What is Avapro used for?
Avapro is prescribed for hypertension, better known as high blood pressure.
As an angiotensin II receptor blocker, Avapro keeps the blood vessels relaxed and dilated. When these vessels are narrow, the pressure of the blood increases.
When Avapro is taken, it reduces the blood pressure, and it decreases the activity of the angiotensin II chemical that causes blood vessels to become narrow.
Avapro should be taken the way your doctor directs.
When it comes to dosage, you should have an initial dosage of 150 mg once daily if you suffer from diabetic nephropathy. If well tolerated, you can take a maintenance dose of between 150 mg to 300 mg once per day.
If being taken to treat hypertension, then the same initial and maintenance dosages should be taken.
This medication can be taken with or without food and you should have your blood pressure checked regularly. Even if your symptoms improve, continue taking Avapro as directed by your doctor.
