Avapro, classified as an angiotensin II receptor blocker or ARB, acts by inhibiting the constriction of blood vessels, leading to a decrease in blood pressure and improved blood circulation.  

This medication is indicated for the management of hypertension in adult and pediatric populations aged 6 years and older, as its blood pressure-lowering effects may reduce the likelihood of cardiovascular events such as stroke or heart attack.  

Avapro is prescribed to address renal complications in patients with type 2 diabetes. 

Uses and Dosage 

The initial dosage recommended for Avapro is typically 150 mg once daily. Nevertheless, individual dosage requirements may differ depending on factors such as the patient’s medical history, current medication regimen, and disease severity. 

Avapro can be taken with or without food and should be taken at the same time every day. If a dose is missed, the patient should omit it if several hours have elapsed since the usual dosing time. Doubling the dose to make up for missed medication is not recommended. 

Adherence to the prescribed regimen is crucial, and the patient must follow the physician’s instructions on dosing. Overdosing may result in severe adverse effects or other medical conditions. Avapro is a medication that does not cure hypertension; instead, this is intended for long-term use to reduce blood pressure and relieve associated symptoms.
