How ramipril + telmisartan + hydrochlorothiazide works
This is a combination of three medicines: Ramipril, Telmisartan and Hydrochlorothiazide which lower blood pressure effectively. Ramipril is an angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor. It works by reducing stress on the heart and relaxing blood vessels. Telmisartan is an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) which blocks the hormone angiotensin thereby further relaxing blood vessels. Together, they allow the blood to flow more smoothly and the heart to pump more efficiently. Hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic that removes extra water and certain electrolytes from the body. Over time it also relaxes blood vessels and improves blood flow.
