Advant 16mg Tablet 7 'S

Prescription Required

FORMULACandesartan 16 mg
Dosing & Indication
Side Effects

This drug is prescribed to patients with high blood pressure (the normal blood pressure of an adult is usually 120/80 mmHg) to reduce the strain on the heart muscles and allows the heart to pump blood at its normal pace.

Hypertension left untreated can cause severe damage to the brain, heart, kidney, blood vessels, and other body organs. High blood pressure is also caused by the narrowing of the arteries (blood vessels that take blood to the organs) thus Advant 16mg Tablet 7 'S helps prevent the decrease in the diameter of the vessels keeping them healthy and working efficiently.


How Does Advant 16mg Tablet 7 'S Work

This medication belongs to a group of drugs known as Angiotensin II Receptor Blockers. Angiotensin is a natural hormone found in the body that works by narrowing the blood vessels in the human body. Advant 16mg Tablet 7 'S works by inhibiting angiotensin from performing its function and therefore preventing the narrowing of blood vessels and aiding the free and proper flow of blood to the organs and through the blood vessels.
