Avalide (irbesartan-hydrochlorothiazide) Tablets is indicated for the treatment of hypertension.
Avalide may be used in patients whose blood pressure is not adequately controlled on monotherapy, may also be used as initial therapy in patients who are likely to need multiple drugs to achieve their blood pressure goals.
The choice of Avalide as initial therapy for hypertension should be based on an assessment of potential benefits and risks.
Losartan potassium is a prescription medicine that has been licensed to treat several conditions related to the heart and blood vessels. It is part of a class of drugs called angiotensin II receptor blockers, or ARBs for short.
For more details, please do talk to your doc/pharmacist who prescribed the med., hope the info helped? Take care.
