    What is Atacand Plus used for?


    Atacand Plus contains a combination of 2 drugs, candesartan and hydrochlorothiazide. It is used for the treatment of high blood pressure. Candesartan belongs to a class of drugs known as angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs). You can recognize an ARB because its medicinal ingredient ends in “-SARTAN”. It lowers blood pressure by relaxing the arteries and letting the blood flow more freely. Hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic or “water pill” that increases urination. This lowers blood pressure. Atacand Plus does not cure high blood pressure and helps only to control it. Hence, it is important to continue taking the medication regularly even if you feel fine. Take the medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor. It is recommended to take your dose at about the same time every day. It can be taken with or without food, but should be taken the same way each day. Swallow the tablets with a glass of water. If Atacand Plus upsets your stomach, take it with food or milk.
