What is Amias?

Amias is a medicine used to reduce high blood pressure and improve heart muscle function. This treatment can be used by both adults and children. Amias is usually one method patients use to treat high blood pressure alongside lifestyle changes (such as exercising more and improving their diet).

How does Amias work?

This treatment contains an ingredient called candesartan cilexetil, which belongs to a group of medicines called angiotensin II receptor antagonists. What it does is make your blood vessels more relaxed so that they widen. This makes it easier for your heart to pump blood to all parts of your body.

How do I take Amias?

Amias tablets can come in various different strengths but are usually taken on a daily basis regardless of which one you’re prescribed. The tablets can be taken with or without food. The recommended dosage for treating high blood pressure in adults is 8mg once a day. Your doctor may increase the dosage to 16mg or 32mg once a day depending on blood pressure response. The dosage may be below 8mg in certain circumstances, such as if you have liver problems.

For children and adolescents aged between 6 and 17 years old, the recommended starting dose is 4mg once a day. Your doctor may increase the daily dose, however, depending on the response to treatment and weight of the patient.

If this medication is being used by an adult who has previously experienced heart failure, the recommended starting dose is 4mg once a day, though this may be increased by doubling the dose at intervals of at least 2 weeks. The maximum the dose may go up to is 32mg once a day. Other medicines that treat heart failure may be taken alongside Amias.

What are the side effects of Amias?

The most common side effects reported by users of this medication include the following:

  • Dizziness and spinning sensations
  • Headaches
  • Respiratory infections
  • Low blood pressure
  • Changes in blood test results (an increased amount of potassium in your blood, particularly if you have kidney problems or have experienced heart failure before)
  • Effects on how your kidney works (especially if you already have kidney problems or have experienced heart failure before)

Other side effects are possible but also rare and the chances are you won’t experience any at all while using Amias. Some of the rare side effects can be very serious though, so you should contact your doctor as soon as possible if you experience any that are concerning.

There’s a small chance that you could experience an allergic reaction from this medication, in which case you should stop taking the tablets and seek medical help immediately. Signs of an allergic reaction include:

  • Swelling of the face, lips, tongue and/or throat
  • Difficulties in swallowing
  • Difficulties in breathing
  • Severe itching of the skin, possibly with raised lumps

Another rare side effect is a reduction in the number of white blood cells in your body. If this happens, your resistance to infection may be decreased and you may experience tiredness, an infection or a fever.

Can I use Amias?

Before you start using Amias, you should check that you don’t have any medical conditions that could create complications, plus you’re not taking any other medication that could have a similar effect.

You should avoid using this medication if any of the following applies to you:

  • You are more than 3 months pregnant (it’s better to avoid Amias even during early pregnancy)
  • You have a severe liver disease or biliary obstruction. The latter is a problem with the drainage of bile from the gallbladder
  • You’re taking a blood pressure-lowering medicine containing aliskiren and also you have diabetes or impaired kidney function

Talk to your doctor about any other health conditions you have which you know or think may impact your use of this medication to some extent. You should also inform your doctor or pharmacist about other medicines you are currently taking or have recently used. Altering your dose or taking other precautions may be required if you are currently using certain treatments. In particular, it’s important to mention any of these if you are using them:

  • Any other medicines that help lower your blood pressure. Examples include beta-blockers, diazoxide and ACE inhibitors
  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Examples include ibuprofen, naproxen and diclofenac
  • Potassium supplements or salt substitutes that contain potassium
  • Medicines that contain aliskiren
  • Water tablets (diuretics)
  • Acetylsalicylic acid (more than 3g each day)
  • Heparin
  • Lithium

What if I use too much Amias?

If you accidentally take more of this medication then you were meant to, then contact your doctor or pharmacist immediately for advice.

What if I forget to take Amias?

If you forget to take a dose of this medication during one day, then simply skip it and take the next one at the usual time. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one.
