What is sacubitril/valsartan used for?

sacubitril/valsartan is an angiotensin receptor-neprilysin inhibitor (ARNI) and is used to treat heart failure in people ages 1 year or older.

How does sacubitril/valsartan work?

How does sacubitril/valsartan work?

sacubitril/valsartan is a combination of two medications that work together to treat heart failure. Together, they’re known as an angiotensin receptor-neprilysin inhibitor (ARNI). Sacubitril is a neprilysin inhibitor. It works by blocking a protein in your body called neprilysin. This prevents the breakdown of substances called natriuretic peptides. These help relax your blood vessels and lower your blood pressure. They’re important for preventing worsening of heart failure. Valsartan is an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB). It blocks angiotensin II, a hormone that narrows blood vessels. In doing so, valsartan relaxes blood vessels, which lowers your blood pressure and allows more blood to get to your heart and other organs.
