What is Avapro Used For?

Avapro uses the active ingredient irbesartan to treat high blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart attacks. Hypertension, or high blood pressure, is a condition in which the pressure in the veins becomes too high, putting strain on the heart. Hypertension can cause headaches, nose bleeds, confusion, and chest pain among other symptoms, and it can lead to complications such as heart attack, stroke, heart failure, aneurysms, vision loss, and dementia.

This medication is also used for people with type II diabetes mellitus and neuropathy to prevent or reduce corresponding hypertension.

How Does Avapro Work?

Irbesartan belongs to a family of medications known as angiotensin ii receptor blockers. This class of drugs work by preventing the constriction of muscles in the blood vessels. The result is a dilation or loosening of the arteries and veins, which eases blood density and reduces the pressure in the cardiovascular system.

The vasoconstriction-blocking effects of Avapro both eases the symptoms of hypertension and reduces the risk of heart disease.

Avapro Side Effects

If you experience an allergic reaction after taking this medication, call for emergency medical services. You should not take this medication if you are hypersensitive to Irbesartan or any other angiotensin ii receptor blocker medications. Signs of an allergic reaction include: Swelling of the face, tongue, or throat, skin rashes, and difficulty breathing.

If you experience any dangerous or bothersome side effects, it may be necessary to make adjustments to your treatment, including reducing your dosage or halting treatment altogether. Monitor your health closely, and tell your doctor right away if you notice:

  • Light headedness or extreme dizziness,
  • Urinary retention; little or no urination,
  • Nausea, chest pain, weakness, heart palpitations, loss of movement, and tingling — may be an indication of high potassium.
  • Confusion

Tell your doctor before using this medication if you have any previous or current conditions causing symptoms very similar to those listed above. If you are taking certain medications with similar risks, you may also need to communicate with your doctor to help mitigate side effects.

Not all side effects are dangerous, however, you may still want to see your doctor if they are severe, persistent, or you are finding them bothersome. Common side effects include:

  • Dizziness
  • Light headedness
  • Muscle pain
