What is Teveten prescribed for?
Teveten is used to treat high blood pressure, which is also known as hypertension. If someone has high blood pressure, it means that their heart is working harder than it should to pump blood around the body. If this continues for a long time, the heart and arteries may not function properly. This could result in damaged blood vessels of the brain, heart, and kidneys which could result in a stroke, heart failure, or kidney failure. This drug is often used as part of combination therapy to treat high blood pressure.
This medicine is also sometimes given to help treat heart failure or diabetic nephropathy (kidney disease in people with diabetes).
How does Teveten work?
Teveten is an oral tablet containing the active ingredient Eprosartan, and it belongs to a class of drugs known as angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs). It works by stopping blood vessels from narrowing, which improves blood flow and lowers blood pressure. It also allows your kidney to get rid of excess water and salt, which helps lower your blood pressure.
