Description

What is Entresto?

Entresto, with the generic name sacubitril and valsartan, is an oral medication indicated to reduce the risk of cardiovascular hospitalization and death among adult patients with chronic heart failure. This is also used to treat symptomatic heart failure among pediatric and adult patients with systemic left ventricular systolic dysfunction.

This combination of neprilysin inhibitor and angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB) works by increasing the natriuretic peptide level and inhibiting the effects of angiotensin II. It basically relaxes blood vessels which allows blood to flow easily and makes it easier for the heart to pump blood to the entire body.

This is available in Entresto 97/103 mg, 49/51 mg, and 24/26 mg film-coated tablets.
