A healthcare provider may prescribe Avalide® (irbesartan/HCTZ) to treat high blood pressure in adults. Your dosage will depend on several factors, such as how you respond to the medication, other medical conditions you may have, and other medications you are taking.
Avalide comes in the form of a tablet and is typically taken once daily. These tablets are available in the following strengths:
- Avalide 150/12.5 mg -- 150 mg of irbesartan and 12.5 mg of hydrochlorothiazide
- Avalide 300/12.5 mg -- 300 mg of irbesartan and 12.5 mg of hydrochlorothiazide
- Avalide 300/25 mg -- 300 mg of irbesartan and 25 mg of hydrochlorothiazide.
Your dosage can be taken either with or without food, but it should be taken at the same time each day to maintain an even level of the medication in your blood.
