Atacand and its Uses

Generic Atacand is in a class of drugs called angiotensin receptor blockers, which includes losartan (Cozaar), valsartan (Diovan), and irbesartan (Avapro).

Generic Atacand is used to treat high blood pressure. Atacand blocks the action of certain chemicals that tighten the blood vessels, so blood flows more smoothly.

Generic Atacand is indicated for the treatment of heart failure. Generic Atacand also has an added effect on these outcomes when used with an ACE inhibitor.

Atacand Mechanism Atacand Working

Generic Atacand works by preventing the action of a hormone in the body called angiotensin II.

Angiotensin II normally acts on special receptors in the body, with two main results. Firstly, it causes the peripheral blood vessels to narrow, and secondly, it stimulates the production of another hormone called aldosterone. Aldosterone causes salt and water to be retained by the kidneys, which increases the volume of fluid in the blood vessels.

Generic Atacand blocks the receptors that angiotensin II acts on, and so prevents its actions. The main result of this is that the peripheral blood vessels are allowed to widen, which means that there is more space and less resistance in these blood vessels. This lowers the pressure inside the blood vessels.

Blocking the actions of angiotensin II also reduces the action of aldosterone on the kidneys. The result of this is an increase in the amount of fluid removed from the blood by the kidneys. This decreases the amount of fluid in the blood vessels, which also lessens the resistance and pressure in the blood vessels.

The combined overall effect of these changes is to lower the blood pressure.

Generic Atacand is also used to improve the symptoms of heart failure, where the heart is not pumping as efficiently as it should. It helps heart failure because lowering the pressure within the blood vessels means that the heart doesn't have to work as hard to pump the blood around the body.

Food and Drug Interactions with Atacand

  • If Atacand is taken with other medicines that decrease blood pressure, either as a treatment for high blood pressure or as a side effect, the effects on blood pressure are likely to be additive. If your blood pressure falls too low it might make you feel dizzy, in which case lie down until the feeling passes and let your doctor know, in case your doses need adjusting.
  • If Atacand is taken in combination with the following there may be an increase in the amount of potassium in the blood (hyperkalaemia). If you are taking any of these with Atacand your doctor may want to monitor your blood potassium level:
    • ACE inhibitors, e.g. enalapril
    • potassium-sparing diuretics, e.g. spironolactone
    • potassium supplements
    • potassium containing salt substitutes
    • other medicines that may increase potassium levels, e.g. heparin.
  • If Atacand is taken with lithium, the level of lithium in the blood may increase. Your lithium level should be monitored if you are taking the two together.
