Avapro Prescription FAQs

How Does Avapro Work?

As with other angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs), Avapro blocks the action of a natural enzyme called angiotensin. Angiotensin narrows blood vessels by constricting the surrounding muscles, which results in increased blood pressure. By blocking the action of angiotensin, blood vessels can relax and blood pressure decreases.

Avapro Dosage and Treatment

The typical starting dosage of Avapro is usually 150 mg taken once per day. The dosage may be as low as 75 mg or as high as 300 mg, so always be sure to follow your doctor’s dosing instructions to make sure you are getting the right amount of Avapro for your condition.

What are the Benefits of Avapro?

Since Avapro lowers blood pressure, the benefits of Avapro include a reduced risk of kidney problems, heart attack, or stroke.
