This medication is prescribed for the treatment of high blood pressure (hypertension) to mitigate the risk of strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. It consists of two active ingredients: telmisartan and amlodipine. Telmisartan functions as an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB), while amlodipine acts as a calcium channel blocker. These components operate in distinct ways to induce relaxation in the blood vessels, facilitating smoother blood flow.

Uses and Dosage

Consume this medication orally, with or without food, following your doctor’s instructions, usually once a day. The prescribed dosage is determined based on your medical condition and how well you respond to the treatment.

To derive maximum benefits, use this medication consistently. Establish a routine by taking it at the same time every day.

Continue taking the medication even if you feel well, as individuals with high blood pressure often do not experience noticeable symptoms. It may take up to 4 weeks before you observe the full benefits of this drug.

Inform your doctor if your condition does not improve or worsens, such as if your blood pressure readings persist at a high level or increase.
