Information

Atacand (Candesartan) is an angiotensin II receptor antagonist. Atacand is used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure) in adults and children who are at least 1 year old. Lowering blood pressure can reduce the risk of stroke, heart attack, or other heart complications. Atacand can also be used in adults with certain types of heart failure to reduce serious complications or death due to heart damage. Atacand works due to its inhibition of angiotensin. Angiotensin is a chemical that attaches to smooth muscle cells surrounding blood vessels, which causes the muscle cells to contract and the blood vessels to narrow. Atacand blocks the angiotensin receptors and preventing the actions of angiotensin. As a result, the blood vessels no longer constrict, and blood pressure is reduced.
