About Candersartan

How quickly does it work?

Candesartan can reduce your blood pressure within two hours of the first dose, but it takes about four weeks before it reaches its maximum effectiveness.

Hypertension is a persistent condition, so it is likely that you will need to take medicine to manage your blood pressure long-term. Your doctor will want to see you at least once a year to review your blood pressure. They may decide to increase or decrease your dosage or change your prescription depending on how you're doing.

If your blood pressure has been well controlled for a long time and you're only using one medicine to manage it, or if you've made changes to your lifestyle to reduce your blood pressure, your doctor may decide you may be able to trial a period without medicine.

If you are considering a trial without medicine, you should speak to your doctor first. Your dosage will need to be gradually reduced over time, and regular blood pressure checks will be required.

Dosages of Candesartan include:

  • 4mg - recommended starting dosage
