Amlopres+ 2 tabs of benace-5+20 MG



Amlopres + Benace- It can be expanded as Amlodipine Besylate plus Benazepril. The first constituent Amlodipine Besylate is a long

acting dihydropyridine-type calcium channel blocker while the second constituent Benazepril is an ACE inhibitor (Angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor).  The fixed dose combination of both the active ingredients is recommended for the treatment of hypertension and other cardiovascular problems.  This is the most popular drug which is prescribed to reduce the hypertension and to prevent angina or chest pain. Lowering the high blood pressure is helpful in reducing the heart strokes, attacks and kidney problems. This drug is quite useful in building the exercise capability by decreasing the frequency of angina attacks.



How Amlodipine Besylate + Benazepril works?


Amlodipine Besylate works by inhibiting the movement of calcium ions via L type calcium channels into the vascular tissues and cardiac muscle cells. By restraining the entry of calcium channels, patients can decrease the contractility of arterial smooth muscles and causes vasodilation. It leads to relaxation of blood vessels which circulate the blood flow properly and reduces the overall blood pressure. While, Benazepril is an ACE (Angiotensin converting enzyme) inhibitor that also dilates blood vessels and prevents body from retaining water.  It reduces the post heart attack damage by delivering sufficient amount of oxygen. In case of kidney problems, it improves the blood supply in the kidney’s blood carrying vessels and lowers down the chance of getting hypertension and post diabetes effects.
