Tekturna is prescribed to treat high blood pressure. It works by inhibiting renin, an enzyme that causes blood vessels to contract.
Always follow your doctor’s instructions and use Tekturna exactly as prescribed.
Tekturna can be taken with or without food, but should be taken the same way every day.
Avoid eating with fatty foods, as this can affect how the drug is absorbed.
Do not use Tekturna if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, and stop taking it immediately if you become pregnant.
Before taking Tekturna, inform your doctor if you have any of the following:
Heart disease or heart attack
Allergies to any blood pressure or heart medication
People with diabetes should not take Tekturna together with other heart or blood pressure medications, including ACE inhibitors and angiotensin II agonists.
Inform your doctor of all other drugs you currently take.
Common side effects of Tekturna include:
Contact your doctor if you experience these more serious side effects:
Producing little or no urine
Feeling light-headed or passing out
Low sodium levels – confusion, headache, weakness, vomiting, loss of coordination, slurred speech

Why is high blood pressure dangerous?
Over time, high blood pressure causes damage throughout the body, including the blood vessels, heart, brain and kidneys. Heart disease and stroke are the leading causes of death in people with undiagnosed high blood pressure.
If my blood pressure is within normal range, can I stop taking Tekturna?
Discontinuing medication will likely cause your blood pressure to increase. Don’t stop taking Tekturna unless directed to do so by your doctor.

What's the difference between generic drugs and brand name drugs?
What's the difference between the branded products you sell and the ones I get locally?
The branded drugs we sell are chemically and therapeutically no different from the ones you get in your local pharmacy. They both generally come from the same exact manufacturer. Generally, the main difference* is in the packaging and the price. Our packaging may be different from what you get locally, but we're also much cheaper.
* Other differences may include differences in trade name, form, and general appearance.
Why are there packaging differences?
Due to differences in government regulation, different countries have different packaging requirements. For example, a product in Canada (or any other country) will have different packaging than the same product in the US even though both drugs are chemically and therapeutically equivalent and are generally manufactured by the same exact company.
Why are your drugs so much cheaper?
Due to government price controls, medications from Canada and many other countries are often significantly cheaper than in the United States. Also, other countries may have more affordable generic versions of drugs, which may not yet be available in the US.
