Take this medicine in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Swallow it as a whole. Do not chew, crush or break it. ERITEL LN may be taken with or without food, but it is better to take it at a fixed time.
ERITEL LN is a combination of two medicines: Cilnidipine and telmisartan. Cilnidipine is a calcium channel blocker (CCB) and telmisartan is an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB). They work by widening and relaxing the blood vessels, thereby lowering blood pressure.
Taking Telmisartan with alcohol may excessively lower the blood pressure.
