How Teltas Duo Tablet works

Teltas Duo 40mg/8mg Tablet is a combination of two medicines : Telmisartan and Azelnidipine. Telmisartan is an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB). It relaxes blood vessels by blocking the action of a chemical that usually makes blood vessels tighter. This lowers the blood pressure, allowing the blood to flow more smoothly to different organs and the heart to pump more efficiently. Azelnidipine is a calcium channel blocker. It regulates the blood pressure by relaxing the blood vessels and reducing the pressure on them, thereby making it easier for the heart to pump more blood throughout the body. In this way, it normalizes the blood pressure in patients with high blood pressure and also improves the oxygen flow in the body, thereby, preventing any heart-related chest pain.
