What is it and how is it used?

Karvea belongs to a group of medicines known as angiotensin-II receptor antagonists. Angiotensin-II is a substance produced in the body which binds to receptors in blood vessels causing them to tighten. This results in an increase in blood pressure. Karvea prevents the binding of angiotensin-II to these receptors, causing the blood vessels to relax and the blood pressure to lower. Karvea slows the decrease of kidney function in patients with high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes.

 

Karvea is used
to treat high blood pressure ( essential hypertension)
to protect the kidney in patients with high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and laboratory evidence of impaired kidney function.

What do you have to consider before using it?

Do not take Karvea
if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to irbesartan or any other ingredients of Karvea if you are more than 3 months pregnant. (It is also better to avoid Karvea in early pregnancy – see pregnancy section)

Karvea should not be given to children and adolescents (under 18 years).

Take special care with Karvea
Tell your doctor
if any of the following apply to you:
if you get excessive vomiting or diarrhoea
if you suffer from kidney problems
if you suffer from heart problems
if you receive Karvea for diabetic kidney disease. In this case your doctor may perform regular blood tests, especially for measuring blood potassium levels in case of poor kidney function if you are going to have an operation (surgery) or be given anaesthetics
You must tell your doctor if you think you are ( or might become) pregnant. Karvea is not recommended in early pregnancy, and must not be taken if you are more than 3 months pregnant, as it may cause serious harm to your baby if used at that stage (see pregnancy section).

Using other medicines
Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking or have recently taken any other medicines, including medicines obtained without a prescription.

Karvea does not usually interact with other medicines.

You may need to have blood checks if you take:
potassium supplements
salt substitutes containing potassium
potassium-sparing medicines (such as certain diuretics)
medicines containing lithium

If you take certain painkillers, called non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, the effect of irbesartan may be reduced.

Taking Karvea with food and drink
Karvea can be taken with or without food.

Pregnancy and breast-feeding
Pregnancy
You must tell your doctor if you think you are ( or might become) pregnant. Your doctor will normally advise you to stop taking Karvea before you become pregnant or as soon as you know you are pregnant and will advise you to take another medicine instead of Karvea. Karvea is not recommended in early pregnancy, and must not be taken when more than 3 months pregnant, as it may cause serious harm to your baby if used after the third month of pregnancy.

Breast-feeding
Tell your doctor if you are breast-feeding or about to start breast-feeding. Karvea is not recommended for mothers who are breast-feeding, and your doctor may choose another treatment for you if you wish to breast-feed, especially if your baby is newborn, or was born prematurely.

Driving and using machines
No studies on the effects on the ability to drive and use machines have been performed. Karvea is unlikely to affect your ability to drive or use machines. However, occasionally dizziness or weariness may occur during treatment of high blood pressure. If you experience these, talk to your doctor before attempting to drive or use machines.

Important information about some of the ingredients of Karvea
Karvea contains lactose
. If you have been told by your doctor that you have an intolerance to some sugars (e.g. lactose), contact your doctor before taking this medicine.

How is it used?

Always take Karvea exactly as your doctor has told you. You should check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.

Method of administration
Karvea is for oral use. Swallow the tablets with a sufficient amount of fluid (e.g. one glass of water). You can take Karvea with or without food. Try to take your daily dose at about the same time each day. It is important that you continue to take Karvea until your doctor tells you otherwise.

Patients with high blood pressure
The usual dose is 150 mg once a day (two tablets a day). The dose may later be increased to 300 mg (four tablets a day) once daily depending on blood pressure response.

Patients with high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes with kidney disease

In patients with high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes, 300 mg (four tablets a day) once daily is the preferred maintenance dose for the treatment of associated kidney disease.

The doctor may advise a lower dose, especially when starting treatment in certain patients such as those on haemodialysis, or those over the age of 75 years.

The maximal blood pressure lowering effect should be reached 4-6 weeks after beginning treatment.

If you take more Karvea than you should
If you accidentally take too many tablets, contact your doctor immediately.

Children should not take Karvea
Karvea should not be given to children under 18 years of age. If a child swallows some tablets, contact your doctor immediately.

If you forget to take Karvea
If you accidentally miss a daily dose, just take the next dose as normal. Do not take a double dose to make up for a forgotten dose.

If you have any further questions on the use of this product, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

What are possible side effects?

Like all medicines, Karvea can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them. Some of these effects may be serious and may require medical attention.

As with similar medicines, rare cases of allergic skin reactions (rash, urticaria), as well as localised swelling of the face, lips and/or tongue have been reported in patients taking irbesartan. If you get any of these symptoms or get short of breath, stop taking Karvea and contact your doctor immediately.
