TEKTURNA

Blood pressure still not where you want it to be? You're not alone.

In a government survey approximately 45% of US adults with high blood pressure (BP) had uncontrolled BP numbers. If your blood pressure is still not where you want it to be, in addition to lifestyle and diet changes, you may benefit from prescription TEKTURNA. Taken once a day, TEKTURNA may help you get closer to your blood pressure goal.

TEKTURNA targets renin to help lower high blood pressure

TEKTURNA is a scientifically innovative treatment that targets an enzyme in certain tissues in the body and in the bloodstream called renin. Renin can start a process that narrows blood vessels. By inhibiting renin, TEKTURNA helps:

  • Blood vessels relax
  • Blood flow more freely
  • Lower blood pressure

How TEKTURNA Works Differently

TEKTURNA is a scientifically innovative treatment that targets an enzyme in the bloodstream called renin, which can start a process that narrows blood vessels, leading to high blood pressure.

How TEKTURNA HCT Works

TEKTURNA HCT lowers blood pressure with two different components

TEKTURNA HCT offers two FDA-approved prescription medicines—aliskiren (TEKTURNA), a direct renin inhibitor (DRI), and hydrochlorothiazide, a diuretic (water pill)—in one tablet.

  1. 1. Here’s how the TEKTURNA component works:

    Renin is an enzyme that can start a process that narrows blood vessels, leading to high blood pressure. TEKTURNA inhibits renin, which helps:

    • Blood vessels relax
    • Blood flow more freely to lower blood pressure
  2. 2. Here’s how the hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) component works:
    • HCTZ is a diuretic, also called a water pill
    • HCTZ causes sodium and water to move out of the body (through urination)
    • HCTZ reduces blood volume, which can help lower blood pressure

In a medical study, TEKTURNA was combined with HCTZ, a diuretic, also called a water pill. People who took the combination of TEKTURNA and HCTZ, achieved greater reduction in their blood pressure than those taking TEKTURNA or HCTZ alone. TEKTURNA HCT combines these two components in a single once-daily tablet.
