What Telfort and what it is used
Telfort contains two active substances called telmisartan and amlodipine. Both substances help to control your high blood pressure:
- Telmisartan belongs to a group of medicines called "angiotensin receptor antagonists II" Angiotensin II is a substance produced in the body which causes constriction of blood vessels, thereby increasing blood pressure. Telmisartan works by blocking the effect of angiotensin II.
- Amlodipine belongs to a group of substances called "calcium channel blockers". Amlodipine stops entry of calcium into the blood vessel wall, which prevents the blood vessels to narrow.
This means that both substances prevent the narrowing of the blood vessels. As a result, blood vessels relax and blood pressure is lowered
