CANDESARTAN 4MG (100 TABLETS)

Generic Name: candesartan
Brand Name: Atacand
Drug class: Angiotensin receptor blockers

Atacand and its generic candesartan is available in the strength of 4 mg and 8 mg and 16 mg and 32 mg tablets.

Candesartan belongs to a family of medications known as angiotensin II receptor blockers and are used to treat high blood pressure, prevent mild-to-moderate congestive heart failure, or decrease the risk of further heart attack occurrences in people with coronary artery disease. High blood pressure adds to the workload of the heart and arteries. If the additional workload is untreated or left unmanaged, the heart and arteries may not function properly. This can damage the blood vessels of the brain, heart, and kidneys, resulting in a stroke, heart or kidney failure.

Candesartan works to relax veins and arteries allowing for smoother blood flow thus lower blood pressure by preventing an enzyme in the body from producing angiotensin II, a substance that narrows blood vessels. As a result, blood vessels stay relaxed allowing for an adequate supply of blood and oxygen to the heart that will lower blood pressure.

It takes about 2 weeks for this medication to begin lowering blood pressure, and about 4 weeks for it to reach its full effect.

This medication should not be used in children less than 1 year of age.

For adults with high blood pressure, the usual recommended starting dose of candesartan is 16 mg once daily. Reductions in blood pressure are often seen within 2 weeks, and the full effects on blood pressure are seen in about 4 weeks. Your doctor may decide to increase the dose to 32 mg once a day if your blood pressure has not decreased enough. A diuretic (water pill) may also be added to help reduce blood pressure.

For children with high blood pressurethe dose of candesartan is based on body weight. The usual starting dose for children weighing less than 50 kg is 4 mg once daily. This dose may be increased to a maximum daily dose of 8 mg. For children weighing more than 50 kg, the usual starting dose is 8 mg once daily. This dose may be increased to a maximum daily dose of 16 mg.

For adults with heart failure the usual recommended starting dose of candesartan is 4 mg once daily. Depending on how well you tolerate the medication, the dose may be doubled every 2 weeks to a maximum daily dose of 32 mg.

Candesartan should be taken at approximately the same time each day, with or without food.

Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important that this medication be taken exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose but remember within 12 hours, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If more than 12 hours have passed since your usual dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

It is important to take this medication regularly and to follow your doctor's instructions regarding monitoring your blood pressure to ensure that you receive the maximum benefit from the medication.

CRESTOR 40MG BLSPK  (30 TABLETS)

Generic Name: rosuvastatin
Brand Name: Crestor
Drug class: HMG-CoA Reductase Inhibitors, Lipid-Lowering Agents, Statins

WHAT IS THE DOSAGE OF THIS MEDICATION?

Crestor and its generic rosuvastatin is available in the strength of 5 mg, 10 mg, 20 mg, and 40 mg tablets.


WHAT IS THIS MEDICATION USED FOR?

Rosuvastatin belongs to the group of medications known as HMG CoA reductase inhibitors ("statins"). It is used, along with a healthy diet and exercise program, to improve cholesterol levels by decreasing low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol ('bad cholesterol') and triglycerides in the blood, and increasing high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol ('good cholesterol') in the blood. It is also used to treat people who have certain inherited cholesterol disorders.

Rosuvastatin works by blocking the enzyme that helps make cholesterol in the body. People with high blood cholesterol levels have a higher risk of heart diseases such as heart attacks. When cholesterol levels are lowered with a combination of medication, diet, and exercise, the risk of heart disease is lowered. It takes 2 to 4 weeks to see the maximum effect of this medication on cholesterol levels in blood tests.

It can also be used to reduce the risk of heart attacks, stroke, and angioplasty for people who have at least 2 risk factors for cardiovascular disease.

Before starting rosuvastatin, you should be following a cholesterol-lowering diet. If appropriate, a program of weight control and physical exercise should also be implemented.

The recommended dose of rosuvastatin ranges between 5 mg and 40 mg once daily. For most people, the usual recommended starting dose of rosuvastatin is 10 mg once daily. If necessary, the dose may be increased to a maximum of 40 mg daily. People who require the maximum dose of 40 mg per day should consult a specialist.

For children 10 to 17 years of age, who have inherited cholesterol disorders, the recommended starting dose is 5 mg taken once daily. Your doctor may increase this dose to a maximum of 10 mg daily, depending on the effectiveness of the medication and how well it is tolerated.

For people with severely reduced liver function, the maximum daily dose is 20 mg.

For people with severely reduced kidney function, the starting dose should be 5 mg daily and the maximum daily dose is 10 mg.

A starting dose of 5 mg daily is recommended for people of Asian descent (Chinese, Filipino, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, or Asian-Indian origin) and those who have severe kidney problems. This low dose should also be considered for people who do not need aggressive cholesterol-lowering effects and for people who may be at a greater risk of experiencing muscle-related problems.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

Rosuvastatin may be taken in the morning or in the evening, with or without food.

It is very important that this medication be taken exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and carry on with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store this medication at room temperature, protect it from light and moisture, and keep it out of the reach of children. Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.
