What is Atacand?
Atacand containing the active ingredient candesartan cilexetil is considered an angiotensin II receptor antagonist type of medication. The medication works by blocking certain natural substances in the body to help blood vessels relax, allowing for easier blood flow through the body and enabling the heart to pump more efficiently. The tablets can be taken alone or along with other medication to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) and congestive heart failure. Treating high blood pressure can reduce the risk for strokes, heart attacks and kidney problems.

How is Atacand used?
Atacand is usually taken orally 1 to 2 times per day or as directed by a doctor. The medication can be taken with or without food but should be taken with a glass of water. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage and length of treatment as it will depend on the patientís condition and their response to the therapy. Do not discontinue the treatment without consulting a doctor, even if you feel well, as high blood pressure usually has no visible symptoms.

Adverse effects
Patients using Atacand may encounter unwanted side effects such as:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Chest infections
  • Decreased urination
  • Fainting
  • High potassium blood levels
  • Difficulty breathing or swallowing
  • Irregular heartbeat

Contact a doctor immediately should side effects persist or worsen.

Warnings
Immediately proceed to your nearest emergency department if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms usually associated with such a reaction include difficulty breathing or swallowing, chest tightness, swelling, skin rashes, and hives.

Atacand is not always suitable for all patients. Always consult your health care provider prior to using this medication if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to conceive, using any other medication (prescription or non-prescription), using any herbal products or supplements, or if you have any allergies or other health problems.

The correct dosage and prescription commonly depend on the patient and the condition being treated. Do not adjust your dosage without the approval of your health care provider. This product is only for use as prescribed and instructed.
