Angiotensin II is a chemical found naturally within the body. It makes the blood vessels constrict and become narrower. When the blood vessels are narrowed, the heart has to pump harder to move blood around the body. This puts a strain on the heart, and increases the blood pressure.
Amias is an angiotensin-II receptor antagonist. This means that it blocks the effect of angiotensin II, which in turn makes the blood vessels wider. Amias therefore helps to minimise the pressure on the heart and lowers the blood pressure.
Amias is therefore prescribed for heart failure as it takes the strain off the heart, and lowers the blood pressure.
Amias is available as a tablet. It should be swallowed with some water, and can be taken with or without food.
Dosage of Amias
Usually, Amias is only take once a day. However, the dose of Amias can vary from 2mg to 32mg daily.
When treating high blood pressure (hypertension), a common starting dose is 8mg once a day. If this does not adequately bring your blood pressure down to within the normal range, the dose may be increased after 4 weeks to 16mg once daily or even 32mg once daily.
Patients with kidney or liver disease may be started on a lower dose of 4mg once daily, before increasing the dose as necessary.
When treating heart failure, a common starting dose is 4mg once daily. This can be gradually increased up to 32mg once daily to achieve the best treatment outcome.
