The active ingredient Candesartan is one of the most prescribed hypertension drugs in the market. It belongs to the group of sartans or angiotensin receptor antagonists (ARB).Sartans are receptor antagonists of the ACE receptors and, in addition to the ACE inhibitors and beta-blockers, are the most important drugs for lowering blood pressure. They block the docking site or the receptor of the hormone angiotensin II and suppress its action. Normally, this hormone causes a rise in blood pressure because it provokes vasoconstriction, decreased kidney circulation as well as increased recovery of sodium ions and hence water in the kidneys. Sartans have relatively few side effects as they interfere with the hormone control loop later than the ACE inhibitors.
The natural regulation of blood pressure is a normal body function. If more energy is needed, the body automatically increases blood pressure, and during the periods of rest he automatically lowers it. A disturbance in this natural system can lead to high blood pressure and the human usually does not feel that. Therefore, he does not notice when hypertension gradually gets worse. Constant unnoticed hypertension especially affects small vessels, as they can be found in the eye and in the kidney. Long-term unrecognized hypertension may result in loss of vision and severe kidney dysfunction. In order to prevent consequential damage, the affected persons must do sports, eat healthily and take antihypertensive medication.
The drug is a sartan and is involved in the so-called renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system of the human body, which regulates the electrolyte and fluid balance and thus is also responsible for the regulation of blood pressure. As a relatively young drug it has a very good tolerability. Candesartan is a angiotensin II receptor antagonist. It inhibits the formation of vasoconstrictor messengers such as angiotensin II and enhances the formation of vasodilators such as Bradykinin. By taking the drug, the blood pressure is regulated and the heart is relieved.
The therapy starts with a low dosage of 4 - 8 mg. Depending on the doctor's instructions, the dose will be increased within a few weeks until the blood pressure is adequately regulated.
The tablets are taken once a day. Candesartan can be supplemented with other blood pressure regulating medications, such as the the dehydrating agent hydrochlorothiazide called HCT.
