Buy Exforge brand or generic Amlodipine/Valsartan prescription drug from Canada
Why is Exforge prescribed?
Amlodipine and Valsartan (Exforge) is prescribed for the management of high blood pressure (hypertension) in adults. It may be given when one type of medication is not able to control your blood pressure or when you are just starting to use antihypertensive medications if your doctor decides you need multiple drugs to control your blood pressure.
What does it do?
Hypertension is a medical condition wherein the force that the blood exerts on the walls of your blood vessels is too high. When hypertension is not treated, it can lead to cardiac problems such as strokes and heart attacks. Incorporating a healthy diet and regular exercise in your lifestyle is beneficial in controlling your blood pressure.
Amlodipine is classified as a calcium channel blocker that relaxes your heart muscles and blood vessels. Valsartan is classified as an angiotensin II receptor antagonist that prevents the action of substances in the body that causes the blood vessels to tighten. Together, they work by allowing better blood flow and eventually lowering blood pressure.
How should I take it?
