Were you looking for information about Atacand? Atacan medicine is a common misspelling of Atacand.
Atacand® (candesartan cilexetil) is a medication licensed to control high blood pressure and treat congestive heart failure. This prescription medication is part of a class of drugs called angiotensin II receptor blockers and works by decreasing the effectiveness of a certain chemical that normally causes blood vessels to narrow (constrict). As a result, Atacand causes blood vessels to relax, which can lower blood pressure. Atacand comes in tablet form and is typically taken once or twice a day. A few of the common side effects seen with the drug include dizziness, back pain, and upper respiratory tract infections.
