Avapro (irbesartan) for hypertension
You'll see Avapro (irbesartan) for hypertension...marketed by Bristol-Myers Squibb and Sanofi.
Avapro is a new angiotensin II antagonist. It's a "me too"...similar to Cozaar (losartan) and Diovan (valsartan).
These drugs work as well as ACE inhibitors to lower blood pressure...but they're better tolerated. Less cough, angioedema, etc.
