VECTOR PLUS 160/25 – Valsartan
For the treatment of hypertension in patients for whom combined therapy is needed. Angiotensin II is a natural substance found in the body that causes constriction of blood vessels, thus causing a rise in blood pressure. The active ingredient valsartan in Vector Plus blocks the effect of angiotensin II. As a result, blood vessels relax and blood pressure drops. Diuretics reduce the amount of salts and water in the body by increasing the output of urine. Prolonged use helps to reduce and balance blood pressure. Hypertension increases the workload of the heart and arteries. If this continues for a long time, it can damage the blood vessels of the brain, heart and kidneys, which may result in a stroke, heart failure, or kidney failure. Hypertension increases the risk of heart attacks. Lowering the blood pressure to a normal level reduces the risk of developing these disorders. If you have questions about how Vector Plus works or why this medicine was prescribed for you, ask the doctor.
