- Amlodipine stops calcium from moving into the blood vessel wall, which stops the blood vessels from tightening.
- Angiotensin II is produced by the body and makes the blood vessels tighten, thus increasing the blood pressure.
- Hydrochlorothiazide increases urine output, which also lowers blood pressure. As a result of all three mechanisms, the blood vessels relax and blood pressure is lowered.
Exforge HCT tablets contain three substances called amlodipine, valsartan and hydrochlorothiazide. All of these substances help to control high blood pressure.
