Telmisartan-amlodipine is a combination medication for treating high blood pressure. This medication contains two first-choice medications for lowering blood pressure: Telmisartan and Amlodipine.
The first medication is Telmisartan which lowers your blood pressure by blocking a chemical that causes blood vessels to tighten. When this chemical is blocked, blood vessels relax. This lowers your blood pressure.
The second medication is Amlodipine, a calcium channel blocker (CCB). It lowers blood pressure by relaxing your heart muscle and blood vessels. Blood vessels get wider when they relax which lowers blood pressure.
