Amlodipine Besylate-Valsartan

Drug Info for amlodipine besylate-valsartan

Amlodipine is used alone or in combination with other medications to treat high blood pressure in adults and children 6 years and older. It is also used to treat certain types of angina (chest pain) and coronary artery disease (narrowing of the blood vessels that supply blood to the heart). Amlodipine is in a class of medications called calcium channel blockers. It lowers blood pressure by relaxing the blood vessels so the heart does not have to pump as hard. It controls chest pain by increasing the supply of blood to the heart. If taken regularly, amlodipine controls chest pain, but it does not stop chest pain once it starts. Your doctor may prescribe a different medication to take when you have chest pain. High blood pressure is a common condition and when not treated, can cause damage to the brain, heart, blood vessels, kidneys and other parts of the body. Damage to these organs may cause heart disease, a heart attack, heart failure, stroke, kidney failure, loss of vision, and other problems. In addition to taking medication, making lifestyle changes will also help to control your blood pressure. These changes include eating a diet that is low in fat and salt, maintaining a healthy weight, exercising at least 30 minutes most days, not smoking, and using alcohol in moderation.

Exforge is a combination drug used to treat high blood pressure. This drug contains amlodipine, a calcium channel blocker. Exforge also contains valsartan, an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB). Both components work by relaxing the muscles in blood vessel walls. Exforge is a brand version of the combination drug amlodipine besylate/valsartan. The components of this drug have been available for years. In the treatment of high blood pressure, Exforge use is common.
