Aliskiren

Hypertensive agents
Renin Inhibitor- directly inhibits renin, leading to decrease plasma renin activity and inhibiting the conversion of angiotensinogen to angiotensin I
-this causes decreased BP, decreased aldosterone release and decreased Na reabsorption
Absorbed in the GI tract
metabolized in liver
excreted in the urine
Adverse effects
-hyperkalemia,
