TELMISARTAN 40 MG + AMLODIPINE 5 MG

Introduction :

This combination of Telmisartan 40mg and Amlodipine 5mg tablet work together to lower blood pressure by dilating blood vessels and improving blood flow, thus reducing strain on the heart. Amlodipine is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) and a type of chest pain called angina. High Blood Pressure (hypertension) High blood pressure comes from blood pushing too hard against your blood vessels. Telmisartan is an angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB).

Mechanism of Action :

Systemic: Telmisartan is a nonpeptide angiotensin II antagonist that selectively blocks the binding of angiotensin II to the AT 1 receptors in vascular smooth muscle and the adrenal gland. In the renin-angiotensin system, angiotensin I is converted by angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) to form angiotensin II . Angiotensin II stimulates the adrenal cortex to synthesize and secrete aldosterone, which decreases the excretion of sodium and increases the excretion of potassium Amlodipine is a dihydropyridine calcium channel blocker that exerts its effect by blocking the transmembrane influx of calcium ions into cardiac and vascular smooth muscles. It also reduces peripheral vascular resistance and lowers blood pressure by acting directly on vascular smooth muscle. Its therapeutic effect on angina may be through a decrease in peripheral resistance (exertional angina) and inhibition of coronary spasm (vasospastic angina)
