  • Product overview

Atacand (candesartan) is an angiotensin II receptor antagonist. Candesartan keeps blood vessels from narrowing, which lowers blood pressure and improves blood flow.

Atacand is also used in adults with certain types of heart failure, to reduce serious complications or death due to heart damage.

Important information

Do not use Atacand if you are pregnant. Stop using this medicine and tell your doctor right away if you become pregnant.

 

If you have diabetes, do not use Atacand together with any medication that contains aliskiren (Amturnide, Tekturna, Tekamlo).

Before taking this medicine

You should not use Atacand if you are allergic to candesartan.

If you have diabetes, do not use Atacand together with any medication that contains aliskiren (Amturnide, Tekturna, Tekamlo).

You may also need to avoid taking candesartan with aliskiren if you have kidney disease.

To make sure Atacand is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have:

  • kidney disease;

  • liver disease;

  • congestive heart failure;

  • an electrolyte imbalance;

  • if you are on a low-salt diet; or

  • if you are dehydrated.

Do not use Atacand if you are pregnant. If you become pregnant, stop taking this medicine and tell your doctor right away. Candesartan can cause injury or death to the unborn baby if you take the medicine during your second or third trimester.

It is not known whether candesartan passes into breast milk or if it could harm a nursing baby. You should not breast-feed while using Atacand.

How should I take Atacand?

Take Atacand exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Follow all directions on your prescription label. Your doctor may occasionally change your dose to make sure you get the best results. Do not take this medicine in larger or smaller amounts or for longer than recommended.

You may take Atacand with or without food.

You may have very low blood pressure while taking this medication. Call your doctor if you are sick with vomiting or diarrhea, or if you are sweating more than usual.

Your blood pressure will need to be checked often. You may also need frequent blood tests to check your potassium.

It may take 2 to 4 weeks of using this medicine before your blood pressure is under control. For best results, keep using the medication as directed. Talk with your doctor if your symptoms do not improve after 4 weeks of treatment.

Keep using Atacand even if you feel well. High blood pressure often has no symptoms. You may need to use blood pressure medicine for the rest of your life.

If you need surgery, tell the surgeon ahead of time that you are using Atacand. You may need to stop using the medicine for a short time.

Store at room temperature away from moisture and heat.
