Aliskiren is employed either as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with other medications to manage high blood pressure. Belonging to the category of medications known as direct renin inhibitors, aliskiren functions by reducing specific natural substances that constrict blood vessels. As a result, blood vessels relax, enabling the heart to pump blood more effectively.

Uses and Dosage

Take this medication orally, typically once daily. You have the option to take it with or without food, but it is crucial to maintain consistency by choosing one method and adhering to it with each dose. The presence of high-fat foods may hinder the drug’s absorption, so it is advisable to steer clear of taking it with a high-fat meal.

Avoid consuming fruit juices like apple, grapefruit, or orange with this medication, as they can potentially reduce its absorption.

The dosage is contingent upon your medical condition and your response to the treatment.

To derive the maximum benefit from this medication, take it on a regular basis and at the same time each day to aid in remembering. Continue taking the medication even if you are feeling well, as individuals with high blood pressure often do not exhibit noticeable symptoms. It might take up to 2 weeks before you experience the full benefits of this medication.

If your condition fails to improve or worsens, evidenced by consistently high or increasing blood pressure readings, promptly inform your doctor.
