Avalide is used to treat hypertension and reduce high blood pressure. Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. Avalide generic is called hydrochlorothiazide and Irbesartan.
How Does Avalide Work?
Avalide medication combines two effective drugs commonly used in various forms to treat hypertension.
Hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic pill, also known as a water pill, which flushes salt and water from the system resulting in lower levels of fluids in the body. Getting rid of excesses of salt and water in the body can reduce high blood pressure and ease symptoms associated with hypertension.
Irbesartan belongs to a class of drugs known as angiotensin II receptor blockers, which are medications that inhibits a peptide hormone in the body responsible for tightening the blood vessels. Angiotensin is the peptide responsible for regulating the pressure in blood vessels through vasoconstriction. By preventing the action of this peptide, the muscles in the blood vessels are not prompted to tighten, which allows them to relax.
Who should not Use Avalide?
You shouldn’t take this medication if you:
