What Is Rasilez Used For?
Rasilez is used for controlling high blood pressure. When blood pressure is high, the workload on the heart and arteries increases, and with time, these organs stop working normally, leading to damage of vital organs such as the brain, heart, kidneys. This can result in stroke, heart failure, heart attack, blood vessel disease or kidney problems. High blood pressure also increases the risk of heart attacks. Reducing blood pressure decreases the risk of developing these illnesses. Rasilez belongs to a class of medications known as “direct renin inhibitors”. It prevents the body from producing Angiotensin II, a substance which causes the blood vessels to tighten, increasing the blood pressure. This medicine does not cure blood pressure. It helps only to control it. Thus, it is important to take Rasilez even if you feel fine.
