Treatan 8mg Tablet 14 'S

Prescription Required

FORMULACandesartan Cilexetil 8 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 if 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 Treatan 8mg Tablet 14 'S helps prevent the decrease in the diameter of the vessels keeping them healthy and working efficiently.


How Does Treatan 8mg Tablet 14 '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. Treatan 8mg Tablet 14 'S works by inhibiting angiotensin from performing its duties 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.

Treatan 8mg Tablet 14 'S can be used to treat:

  • High blood pressure 
  • Heart failure


Adult Dose

In adults, the standard dose of Treatan 8mg Tablet 14 'S is one tablet per day (8mg Once daily) which may be increased later to 16mg to 32mg for the management of hypertension.

Child Dose

In children between the ages of 6-17 years, the dosage may range from 2-16mg per day if the weight of the child is below 50kg and 4-32mg in cases where the weight of the child is above 50kg. Dosages may vary depending on the severity of each case and the weight of the child in question.

Treatan 8mg Tablet 14 'S is not to be used to treat heart failure in children under 18 years of age. It is advised to not stop treatment abruptly without consulting a doctor as the risk of heart failure and stroke is significantly increased without the drug.

Pregnancy Use And Lactation

Treatan 8mg Tablet 14 'S is not to be taken or prescribed to expecting and lactating mothers as it may have fatal consequences. If you are taking the drug and become pregnant, inform your doctor immediately. Small amounts of this drug can be transferred to the child through breast milk and therefore cause low blood pressure in the child thus Treatan 8mg Tablet 14 'S isn't recommended to lactating mothers.
