One lady I know was taking a pretty high dosage (300 mg of Avapro/irbesartan per day, the max you should <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span>
drug) and her aorta shrunk from 4.2 cm <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span>
3.7 cm over a 6-mo. period.
None of that
answers your question directly, but there is
indirect, un-official basis
for having a lot of hope for these studies. Talk to
t and see if he or she will prescribe some for you at
a *HIGH* dosage. You're almost at
the threshold for surgery, so tread carefully.
