TELMISARTAN 40MG + AMLODIPINE 5MG (Telmisartan 40Mg + Amlodipine Bisylate Eq to Amlodipine 5Mg)
Telmisartan plus Amlodipine is a combination of two salts namely Telmisartan + Amlodipine. Whereas the first salt in the drug i.e.TELMISARTAN is beneficial for hypertension. Telmisartan relaxes blood vessels as it belongs to angiotensin receptor blockers. When the blood vessels are relaxed, blood starts flowing smoothly. Telmisartan is prescribed as a single salt or in combination with other drugs in the management of high blood pressure. High blood pressure is a condition that can damage the brain, kidneys, heart, and many organs. The damage to any organ can lead to heart attack, kidney failure, loss of eyesight, and many more.
It is also administered to patients, especially in older age suffering from cardiovascular disease to lessen the chances of heart attack, stroke, or death. This drug comes in the category of angiotensin blocker. Angiotensin consists of a protein hormone that results in stenosis in the blood vessels, therefore, Telmisartan blocks angiotensin and helps smooth the flow of blood thereby increasing the efficiency of the heart.
The second salt in the drug is Amlodipine. Amlodipine works as a blocker of calcium channels that widens blood vessels and improves the flow of blood. It regulates the calcium in the cells of the heart and blood vessels. Amlodipine is beneficial for patients having pain in the chest. Amlodipine is prescribed alone or in combination with other salts to manage the lowering of elevated blood pressure. High blood pressure may result in problems related to the heart and arteries. If not addressed for a longer period, the heart and arteries may not function properly.
This drug is a combination of telmisartan and Amlodipine and is prescribed to treat and manage high blood pressure ultimately helping to avoid strokes and heart attacks, and is beneficial in problems related to kidneys.
Two medicines, Telmisartan and Amlodipine, are combined to make Telmisartan and Amlodipine. Amlodipine plays a role of a calcium channel blocker whereas telmisartan performs a function of an angiotensin receptor blocker. They work by lowering blood pressure and increasing the heart’s ability to pump blood efficiently throughout the body. When used together, they effectively lower blood pressure.
This medication is beneficial to lower high blood pressure. Managing high blood pressure to the lower side results in preventing strokes, heart attacks, and problems related to the kidneys. The drug is a combination of two medicines consisting of telmisartan and Amlodipine and both these medicines when worked together differently, result in relaxing the blood vessels to ease the flow of blood. This combination of the drugs is preferred when either of the single medicines does not work to manage blood pressure.
These medications are used together when one drug is not enough to control BP.
