Description of the drug approved by the manufacturer for the printed edition of 2013.


The drug modulates the functional activity of the AT 1 subtype of angiotensin II receptors in various tissues.

In conditions of chronic heart failure, the drug reduces arterial vasoconstriction, peripheral vascular resistance, pre - and postnagruzku on the heart.
Modifies the effect of angiotensin II on the structure and function of resistive vessels, remodeling processes in the cardiovascular system; positively affects the morphofunctional parameters of the heart, including helps reduce myocardial hypertrophy, reduce the volume of dilated heart chambers, normalize myocardial oxygenation. By increasing the stroke volume increases the minute volume of blood flow, without changing the heart rate.
The drug increases exercise tolerance and improves the functional class of CHF.
Taking a drug lasting two or more months is accompanied by an improvement in hemodynamic parameters; leads to the normalization of the daily rhythm of blood pressure (does not affect blood pressure at its normal level, reduces blood pressure at initially elevated values, reduces its fluctuations during the day).
Does not adversely affect the water-salt balance.


In the complex therapy of chronic heart failure:

- to reduce shortness of breath, weakness, severity of peripheral edema;

- to increase tolerance to physical activity.


The drug is taken for a long time. The first 2-3 months of treatment with Cardosten is carried out without canceling the previously prescribed complex therapy for chronic heart failure, the amount of which can be changed in the future by the attending physician.
At one time - 1 tablet (keep in your mouth until completely dissolved - not during meals).
