Menartan uses and description

Sort by popularity
Menartan - Used for: Treating high blood pressure alone or with other medicines. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.

Menartan is an angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB). It works by relaxing blood vessels. This helps to lower blood pressure.

Menartan is in a group of drugs called angiotensin II receptor antagonists. Menartan keeps blood vessels from narrowing, which lowers blood pressure and improves blood flow.

Menartan is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) in adults and children who are at least 6 years old. It is sometimes given together with other blood pressure medications.

Menartan may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Menartan is an antihypertensive agent, angiotensin II receptor blocker. This medication has a high selectivity to angiotensin II receptor type 1 (AT1) which are implemented with the participation of the main effects of angiotensin II. By blocking these receptors Menartan medoxomil prevents and eliminates the vasoconstrictor action of angiotensin II, causes a secondary increase in plasma renin activity due to elimination of negative feedback for renin release and a direct reduction in aldosterone secretion.

When hypertension Menartan medoxomil causes dose-dependent, prolonged reduction of blood pressure.

There are no details about the development of arterial hypotension after the first dose of Olmesartan, tachyphylaxis during prolonged treatment and withdrawal.

When taking first time Menartan medoxomil provides an effective and mild reduction of blood pressure within 24 hours. Maximum antihypertensive effect is achieved after 8 weeks of the therapy, although a significant effect of blood pressure lowering marked only in 2 weeks of the treatment.

Menartan, a specific angiotensin II type 1 antagonist, is used alone or with other antihypertensive agents to treat hypertension. Unlike the angiotensin receptor antagonist losartan, Menartan does not have an active metabolite or possess uricosuric effects. Blockade of the angiotensin II receptor inhibits the negative regulatory feedback of angiotensin II on renin secretion, but the resulting increased plasma renin activity and circulating angiotensin II levels do not overcome the effect of Menartan on blood pressure.
