Pharmacokinetics

How it works?

Rasilez is a medication that has in its composition Alisquireno, a compound that belongs to a new class of drugs called “inhibitor of the renin”, responsible for assisting in the reduction of high blood pressure. The inhibitors of renin reduce the amount of angiotensin II the body can produce. Angiotensin II is responsible for causing the reduction of the caliber of the blood vessels, which leads to an increase in blood pressure. Thus, the reduction of the amount of angiotensin II produced, allows the blood vessels to relax, which promotes the reduction of blood pressure.

The high blood pressure increases the workload and effort of the heart and arteries, and the permanence of arterial blood pressure at high levels for long periods of time can damage the blood vessels of the brain, heart and kidneys. The high blood pressure can cause strokes, heart failure, heart attacks and kidney failure.
