INTRODUCTION

IROVEL 150MG contains Irbesartan which belongs to the group of medicines called angiotensin-II receptor antagonists. It is indicated for the treatment of high blood pressure (essential hypertension) in adult patients. It can also be used to protect kidney functions in patients who have laboratory evidence of impaired kidney function, high blood pressure or type 2 diabetes. Hypertension (also known as high blood pressure) is a heart condition in which the heart pumps blood against the walls of arteries at a high pressure, which may lead to heart attack, stroke, kidney disease and other problems.

Angiotensin-II is a substance produced by the kidneys, that binds to the receptors in the blood vessels, causing vasoconstriction, thus leading to an increase in blood pressure. Irbesartan reduces blood pressure by preventing the binding of angiotensin-II to its receptors in the blood vessel. Along with the treatment, your doctor will recommend you follow certain life-style changes such as quit smoking or alcohol consumption, eat a healthy well-balanced diet with regular physical exercise prescribed to you.

During treatment with irbesartan, your doctor will regularly monitor your kidney function, blood pressure and concentration of electrolytes in your blood to avoid unwanted side effects. Before taking this medicine, inform your doctor if you have diabetic kidney disease, because periodic monitoring of blood potassium levels is required in such patients to avoid kidney damage. The most common side effects of this medicine are nausea, vomiting, dizziness, tiredness or pain in muscle or joints. Contact your doctor if any of the above symptom bothers you.

Do not take IROVEL 150MG if you are pregnant or breastfeeding women. It is strictly not recommended for use during early pregnancy and must not be taken if you are more than 3 months pregnant, as it may cause serious harm to your baby. This medicine is strictly not recommended for use in children and adolescents under 18 years of age due to lack of safety data. Consult your doctor before taking. You will notice an improvement in your condition only after using this medicine for about 4-6 weeks.

USES OF IROVEL 150MG

  • Treats high blood pressure (essential hypertension)
  • Protects kidney function in patients who have laboratory evidence of impaired kidney function, high blood pressure or type 2 diabetes

HOW IROVEL 150MG WORKS

Irbesartan is an angiotensin-II receptor blocker. It acts by preventing the binding of Angiotensin-II (a substance that causes narrowing of the arteries and increases blood pressure) to its receptors in blood vessels. As a result, it causes relaxation of the blood vessel (vasodilation), thus leading to a decrease in blood pressure.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Take this medicine as directed by your physician. It can be taken with or without food. Swallow the medicine as whole with enough water. Do not crush or chew the medicine. Your doctor will decide the correct dose and duration for you depending upon your age, body weight and health condition. Continue to take this medicine, as long as your doctor tells you to do so, to obtain better results.
