This medication is employed for the treatment of high blood pressure (hypertension). By reducing elevated blood pressure, it aids in the prevention of strokes, heart attacks, and kidney issues. The product combines two medications: aliskiren and hydrochlorothiazide. Aliskiren functions by relaxing blood vessels, facilitating smoother blood flow. It falls under the category of drugs known as direct renin inhibitors. Hydrochlorothiazide induces the elimination of excess salt and water from the body by increasing urine production. Commonly referred to as a “water pill” or diuretic, hydrochlorothiazide contributes to the overall antihypertensive effect of the medication.

Uses and Dosage

Take this medication orally as directed by your doctor, usually once daily. You can take it with or without food, but it’s essential to choose one method and consistently take the medication the same way with each dose. High-fat foods may reduce the absorption of this drug, so it’s best to avoid taking it with a high-fat meal.

If you take this drug too close to bedtime, you may need to wake up to urinate. It’s best to take this medication at least 4 hours before going to bed.

Avoid taking this medication with fruit juices (such as apple, grapefruit, or orange) as they may decrease its absorption.

If you are also taking certain drugs to lower your cholesterol (bile acid-binding resins like cholestyramine, colestipol), take aliskiren/hydrochlorothiazide at least 4 hours before or at least 4 to 6 hours after these medications.

The dosage is determined based on your medical condition and response to treatment.

Take this medication consistently to derive the maximum benefit. To help you remember, take it at the same time each day.

Continue taking the medication even if you feel well, as most people with high blood pressure do not experience noticeable symptoms. It may take up to 4 weeks before you fully benefit from this drug.

Inform your doctor if your condition does not improve or if it worsens (e.g., if your blood pressure readings remain high or increase).
