What are guidelines for taking angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs)?

ANSWER

  • ARBs can be taken on an empty or full stomach. Follow the label directions on how often to take this medication. The number of doses you take each day, the time allowed between doses, and how long you need to take the medication will depend on the type of ARB prescribed, as well as your condition. Note: It may take many weeks for you to feel the full effects of the medication.
  • While taking this medication, have your blood pressure and kidney function checked regularly, as recommended by your doctor.
