Amlodipine and valsartan constitute a combined medication regimen prescribed for the treatment of high blood pressure. Prolonged elevation of blood pressure imposes an excessive burden on the cardiovascular system, including the heart and arteries. Over time, this sustained pressure can impair the proper functioning of these vital organs, leading to potential complications such as heart failure or kidney failure. By effectively reducing blood pressure, the risk of debilitating events such as strokes and heart attacks is mitigated.

Amlodipine, classified as a calcium channel blocker (CCB), modulates the movement of calcium ions into the cells of the heart and blood vessels. Valsartan, an angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB), operates by obstructing the action of a specific substance in the body responsible for constricting blood vessels.

Uses and Dosage

Administer this medication orally, following the instructions provided by your physician, either with or without food. Typically, it is taken once daily.

The prescribed dosage is determined based on your specific medical condition and the response observed during the course of treatment.

Consistently adhere to the regular intake of this medication to optimize its therapeutic effects. To facilitate compliance, establish a fixed time each day to take it. Please note that it may take several weeks before experiencing the full benefits of this product. Even if you feel well, continue taking this medication as prescribed, as individuals with high blood pressure often remain asymptomatic.

Should your condition fail to improve or worsen, as evidenced by sustained or increased blood pressure readings, inform your healthcare provider.

Before commencing the use of this medication, inform your doctor or pharmacist about your complete medical history, particularly if you have a history of liver disease, aortic stenosis (a specific heart valve condition), dehydration, or elevated levels of potassium in your blood.

The consumption of this drug may induce dizziness. Consumption of alcohol or marijuana can exacerbate this dizziness. Refrain from driving, operating machinery, or engaging in activities that require alertness until you can safely do so.
