Telmisartan(80 mg)


Telmisartan belongs to a class of medicines known as angiotensin II receptor blockers. It is used to treat high blood pressure, prevention and treatment of heart attack (myocardial Infarction) and heart failure; when heart is unable to pump sufficient blood. It is also used for kidney failure in patients with diabetes.

How it works

Telmisartan blocks the action of a substance (angiotensin II) responsible for narrowing of the blood vessels. It relaxes the blood vessels; thereby lowering blood pressure.

Common side effects

Abdominal bloating, Cough, Decreased blood pressure, Facial swelling, Hypersensitivity reaction, Itching, Muscle cramp, Pain in muscles, Vomiting
Amlodipine(5 mg)


Amlodipine is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) and severe pain in chest.

How it works

Amlodipine belongs to a class of drugs called calcium channel blocker. It reduces the amount of calcium that enters the smooth muscles of the blood vessels and heart. As muscle cells require calcium to contract, reducing the flow of calcium causes the muscle cells to relax and blood vessels to dilate, reducing blood pressure, force and rate of the heartbeat. It improves blood and oxygen supply to the heart muscles.

Common side effects

Palpitations, Abdominal pain, Chest pain, Dizziness, Drowsiness, Fainting, Fatigue, Flushing, Headache, Lightheadedness, Limb swelling, Stomach upset
