Irbesartan or Avapro Generic is an oral medicine that is used for the treatment of high blood pressure or hypertension and diabetic nephropathy or kidney ailment. This medication is related to a class of drugs called angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs). It also contains valsartan (Diovan), losartan (Cozaar), and candesartan (Atacand). Angiotensin, produced in the blood by the action of angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE), is an influential chemical that attaches to angiotensin receptors found in many tissues but mainly on smooth muscle cells of blood vessels. Angiotensin's connection to the receptors causes the blood vessels to narrow (vasoconstrict), which leads to a boost in blood pressure (hypertension). Irbesartan is effective in blocking the angiotensin receptor. By blocking the action of angiotensin, irbesartan dilates blood vessels and reduces blood pressure. Irbesartan is a white to off-white crystalline powder with a molecular weight of 428.5.Irbesartan is a little soluble in alcohol and methylene chloride and almost insoluble in water. The brand name of this medication is Avapro Generic. You should avoid using this medicine if you are allergic to irbesartan.
