What is IROVEL 300?
Irovel works by preventing the action of certain natural substances in the body to relax the blood vessels which will allow blood to flow more smoothly and the heart to pump more efficiently. The active ingredient irbesartan is considered an angiotensin II receptor antagonist. The tablets are mainly prescribed to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) which can help prevent strokes and heart attacks. Patients diagnosed with type 2 diabetes may also use the medication to treat kidney problems associated with high blood pressure and diabetes.
How is IROVEL 300 used?
Irovel should only be used as directed by a doctor, usually once daily. The medication should be taken with a glass of water but can be taken with or without food. Dosage and time frame of treatment will depend on the patient's condition and their response to the therapy, contact a doctor for the correct dosage. Do not discontinue the medication without consulting a doctor, even if you feel well, as high blood pressure usually has no visible symptoms.
