Amlodipine Besylate/Valsartan is a combination drug that is used alone or with other drugs to treat high blood pressure and angina. Amlodipine Besylate/Valsartan is a combination of a channel blocker and an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB).
Amlodipine Besylate/Valsartan works by relaxing blood vessels and in so doing reduces the strain subjected to the heart. It controls angina by increasing the supply of blood to the heart. Note that Amlodipine Besylate/Valsartan may control chest pain but does not stop it once it starts.
Controlling blood pressure also helps prevent kidney failure, loss of vision, stroke, heart failure and other problems.
