Atacand 8 mg is mainly used to treat hypertension or high blood pressure in adults and children 1 to 17. It also effectively treats certain types of heart failure in adults, reducing death and hospitalization for heart damage and heart failure.
Atacand contains Candesartan, an angiotensin II receptor antagonist that prevents the blood vessels from narrowing, improving blood flow and lowering blood pressure. Medicines that lower your blood pressure reduce your chance of heart attack or stroke. It is sometimes prescribed in combination with other blood pressure medicines.
Do not take Atacand 8 mg if you are allergic to any of the ingredients of this medicine or are diabetic and taking Aliskiren. Before you take this medicine, tell your doctor if you have heart problems, liver impairment, kidney problems, are currently having vomiting or diarrhoea, have any other medical conditions, or are scheduled for surgery or anaesthesia.
Tell your doctor about all your medicines, including vitamins and herbal supplements. Atacand and other medications may affect each other, causing serious adverse effects. Especially tell your doctor if you take antidepressants (lithium carbonate, lithium citrate), other medicines for high blood pressure, especially water pills, potassium supplements, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Speak to your doctor before taking a new medicine. Candesartan can cause you to feel dizzy or tired. Do not drive, operate machinery, or perform other dangerous tasks until you know how Candesartan affects you.
Atacand 8 mg may cause serious side effects, including injury or death to your unborn baby. It may also cause low blood pressure (hypotension) in some people. The chances of low blood pressure are higher in those who take water pills, get dialysis treatment, are on a low-salt diet, are dehydrated, or have heart problems.
Low blood pressure can also occur if you have major surgery or anaesthesia. Tell your doctor before taking Atancand if you have worsening kidney problems, increased potassium in the blood, and symptoms of an allergic reaction ( rash, hives, itching, swelling of your face, lips, throat or tongue).
Atacand's most common side effects are dizziness, back pain, sore throat, cold or flu symptoms, congestion, and stuffiness. Tell your doctor about any side effects that bother you or don't resolve. Talk to your doctor for medical advice about side effects.
Atacand 8 mg is taken orally before or after consuming food. Please talk to your doctor if you have trouble swallowing. Do not change or stop Atacand without your doctor's approval, even if you feel well. If you take more of this medicine than the prescribed amount, speak to your doctor.
