Generic Avapro (irbesartan) is in a group of drugs called angiotensin II receptor antagonists. Irbesartan keeps blood vessels from narrowing, which lowers blood pressure and improves blood flow. Generic Avapro is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). It is sometimes given together with other blood pressure medications. Generic Avapro is also used to treat kidney problems caused by type 2 diabetes.

“My ED was giving me nightmares! Yes, I could use Viagra but it was too expensive to buy all the time. That’s why I ordered a generic version at Canadian Pharmacy and could not be happier with the results.”
