Thanks for your query.

No , eating lemons may not affect either Atacand (Candesartan) or even BP.

Lemon contains weak citric acid which gets diluted and neutralised by salivary secretions.It does not have much effect on any of vital parameters.

Taking salty food may increase the BP.

Hope I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
