Information on Aliskiren-HCTZ

Aliskiren-HCTZ (Tekturna HCT®) is a prescription drug used to treat high blood pressure in adults. Because the drug combines two medications, it lowers blood pressure in two ways. The aliskiren component prevents certain enzymes from narrowing the blood vessels, and the hydrochlorothiazide component reduces blood volume. This medicine is not appropriate for everyone; your healthcare provider needs complete information on your medical history and what medications you are taking before prescribing aliskiren-HCTZ.
 
This medication is sold in the form of a tablet and is taken once a day. Diarrhea, coughing, and dizziness are some of the most commonly reported side effects.
