Answer

Angiotensin Receptor Blockers (ARBs)

ARBs inhibit angiotensin II binding to type 1 angiotensin II receptors. These agents are also available in numerous combinations with diuretics.

Losartan (Cozaar)

Losartan inhibits the vasoconstrictor and aldosterone-secreting effects of angiotensin II by blocking the binding of angiotensin II to receptors.

Valsartan (Diovan)

Valsartan inhibits the vasoconstrictor and aldosterone-secreting effects of angiotensin II by blocking the binding of angiotensin II to receptors.

Azilsartan (Edarbi)

Azilsartan inhibits the vasoconstrictor and aldosterone-secreting effects of angiotensin II by blocking the binding of angiotensin II to receptors.

Candesartan (Atacand)

Candesartan inhibits the vasoconstrictor and aldosterone-secreting effects of angiotensin II by blocking the binding of angiotensin II to receptors.

Eprosartan (Teveten)

Eprosartan inhibits the vasoconstrictor and aldosterone-secreting effects of angiotensin II by blocking the binding of angiotensin II to receptors.

Irbesartan (Avapro)

Irbesartan inhibits the vasoconstrictor and aldosterone-secreting effects of angiotensin II by blocking the binding of angiotensin II to receptors.

Olmesartan (Benicar)

Olmesartan inhibits the vasoconstrictor and aldosterone-secreting effects of angiotensin II by blocking the binding of angiotensin II to receptors.

Telmisartan (Micardis)

Telmisartan inhibits the vasoconstrictor and aldosterone-secreting effects of angiotensin II by blocking the binding of angiotensin II to receptors.
