Note: Amlodipine, Valsartan, and Hydrochlorothiazide is a combination of medicines that is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Amlodipine is a calcium channel blocker (CCB) that regulates the absorption of calcium into the cells of the heart and blood vessels. This causes the blood vessels to relax and increases the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart while reducing its workload. Valsartan is an angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB) and works by blocking a substance in the body that causes the blood vessels to tighten. This lowers blood pressure and increases the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart. Hydrochlorothiazide is a thiazide diuretic (water pill). It reduces the amount of water in the body.
