SARTEG WHAT IS AND WHAT IT IS USED
Sarteg medicine class called angiotensin II receptor antagonists. Angiotensin II is a substance in the human body, causing spasm of the vessels., Thus leading to an increase in blood pressure. Sarteg works by blocking the effect of angiotensin II. As a result, blood vessels relax and blood pressure is lowered.
Sarteg 80 mg film-coated tablets can be used in three different conditions: to treat high blood pressure. High blood pressure increases the workload of the heart and arteries. If left untreated, it can damage the blood vessels of the brain, heart and kidneys, and cause a stroke, heart failure or kidney failure. High blood pressure increases the risk of heart attacks. Lowering your blood pressure to normal reduces the risk of developing these disorders.
To treat people after a recent heart attack (myocardial infarction). "Fresh" means in this case between 12 hours and 10 days.
For the treatment of symptomatic heart failure. Sarteg used when a group of drugs called angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor (a drug to treat heart failure) can be used either in addition to ACE inhibitors when beta blockers (other medicines used to treat heart failure ) can not be used. Symptoms of heart failure include shortness of breath and swelling of the feet and legs due to fluid. This occurs when the heart muscle can not pump blood strongly enough to supply all the blood needed.
