How Altoran Products work

This lowers the blood pressure, allowing the blood to flow more smoothly to different organs and the heart to pump more efficiently.

Frequently asked questions about Altoran Products

Frequently asked questions about Azilsartan medoxomil

Q. Is Altoran better than telmisartan?
Both Altoran and telmisartan are blood pressure-lowering medicines. Altoran is a relatively new medicine. It has been found to be as effective as telmisartan in lowering blood pressure. It can be safely used in patients as it has fewer side effects.
Q. How should I take Altoran?
You should take Altoran exactly as directed by your doctor. It is for oral use and is usually taken once a day. You should take it with plenty of water, with or without food. It is recommended that you take this medicine at the same time every day.
Q. Can I stop Altoran on my own?
No, do not stop taking Altoran without speaking to your doctor, even if you are feeling well or your blood pressure is controlled. Stopping it suddenly may increase your blood pressure which may increase your risk of stroke.
Q. How long does Altoran take to start working?
Altoran may take about 2 weeks to show a visible reduction in blood pressure. Full benefits of Altoran may take a little longer, about 4 weeks.
Q. What are the symptoms of overdose of Altoran?
Taking more than the recommended dose of Altoran may decrease your blood pressure due to which you may feel dizzy or may even faint. Consult your doctor immediately or seek emergency medical aid in a nearby hospital.
Q. Which class does Altoran belong to?
Altoran belongs to a class of medicines called angiotensin II receptor antagonists (AIIRAs). Angiotensin II is a substance which occurs naturally in the body. It tightens the blood vessels, which in turn increases the blood pressure. Altoran blocks this effect so that the blood vessels relax, which helps lower your blood pressure.
Q. What is the most important information I should know about Altoran?
It is important for you to know that this medicine can cause harm or death to your unborn baby. Therefore, if you are planning a pregnancy or have become pregnant, consult your doctor right away. Your doctor may switch you to a different medicine to treat your high blood pressure.
Q. Who should not take Altoran?
You should not take Altoran if you are allergic to it or if you are pregnant. Avoid its use if you have diabetes or impaired kidney function and are being treated with a blood pressure-lowering medicine containing aliskiren.
