Angiotensin Receptor Blockers 

Recommended Dose Conversions 



Valsartan 

Irbesartan 

Losartan 

Olmesartan 

Telmisartan 

Candesartan 

Azilsartan 

Eprosartan 



A few months ago the FDA recalled valsartan, then yesterday there was a notice of irbesartan recalls. 

Here's an at-a-glance dose conversion that can be used. Depending on what valsartan or irbesartan dose, select an equivalent dose of another drug in that class. Despite these 2 recalls, this drug class is still going to be used very commonly due to its good BP lowering, CV benefits, renal protection, and that is has a lower incidence of dry cough compared to ACEI's. As a refresher, important monitoring parameters when initiating an ARB include a BMP to monitor for increased potassium and a transient increase in SCr.
