Candesartan this medication is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) in both children and adults. Did you know that by lowering your blood pressure that you may lower your risk of a stroke or heart attack. Candesartan may also be used to help treat certain types of heart failure. Did you know that this medication also helps to lower chances of heart failure/damage? It is in a class of drugs called angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) which includes losartan (Cozaar), valsartan (Diovan), and irbesartan (Avapro). Angiotensin, formed in the blood by the action of angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE), is a powerful chemical that attaches to angiotensin receptors found in many tissues but primarily on smooth muscle cells surrounding blood vessels. Angiotensin’s attachment to the receptors causes the muscle cells to contract and the blood vessels to narrow (vasoconstrict) which leads to an increase in blood pressure. Candesartan blocks the angiotensin receptor and thereby prevents the action of angiotensin. As a result blood vessels expand and blood pressure is reduced.
