Information

Avapro (Irbesartan) is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Avapro belongs to a group of drugs called angiotensin II receptor antagonists. It works by relaxing blood vessels. This medication is sometimes combined with other blood pressure medications. Avapro is also used to treat kidney problems caused by type 2 diabetes. Angiotensin II is a chemical that the body releases to cause the constriction of blood vessels. Irbesartan blocks the action of this chemical, resulting in the relaxation of the blood vessels which causes the blood pressure to decrease. The usual starting dose of Irbesartan is 150mg daily at the same time each day with or without food.
