About Amlodac D Tablet 10's

Amlodac D Tablet 10's belongs to the class of combination medication called 'anti-hypertensive drugs', primarily used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure). Hypertension is a medical condition, in which the blood exerts high pressure (force exerted by circulating blood) against the blood vessel's walls. This condition makes the heart to work harder in pumping the blood to the whole body. Hypertension can cause severe health complications, including stroke, heart failure, heart attack and kidney failure.

Amlodac D Tablet 10's is composed of two medicines, namely: Amlodipine and Indapamide.  Amlodipine belongs to the class of calcium channel blockers and is used to treat high blood pressure. It relaxes blood vessels, so that blood passes through them easily, thereby lowers the blood pressure. Thus, Amlodac D Tablet 10's lowers the risk of stroke and heart attack in people with diabetes and coronary heart disease with raised cholesterol levels.  Indapamide is a thiazide diuretic that inhibits excess salt absorption in the body, resulting in increased chloride, sodium, and water excretion through urine. This diuresis process (increased urine production) and excess salts and fluid removal help lower blood pressure. Indapamide is also used to treat fluid retention in patients with congestive heart failure.
