Mechanism Of Action and Pharmacodynamic Effects
Eprosartan acts on the renin-angiotensin system to decrease total peripheral resistance; eprosartan causes vascular dilation by preventing binding of endogenous angiotensin II to AT1 receptors in vascular smooth muscle cells and additionally inhibits sympathetic norepinephrine production, which reduces blood pressure further.
