Modified on 2009/10/14 21:36 by admin
Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1999, Teveten, also known as Eprosartan Mesylate, is indicated for the treatment of hypertension (high blood pressure). Teveten belongs to a class of medications known as angiotensin II receptor antagonists. The drug works by blocking certain chemicals that tighten blood vessels, allowing blood to flow more smoothly throughout the body. Teveten is made by Unimed Pharmaceuticals. Side effects of Teveten use include, but may not be limited to, depression, stomach pain, muscle aches, sore throat and respiratory infection.

A black box warning indicates that pregnant women should avoid Teveten use. Angiotensin drugs have been known to cause severe harm as well as death to developing fetuses.

See your doctor if you have experienced serious health problems after receiving Teveten. In addition, it may be important to contact an attorney who can help you protect your legal rights. Please keep in mind that there may be time limits within which you must commence suit.
