Camshia Combination Tablets LD for hypertension (candesartan, amlodipine)
What are Camshia Combination Tablets LD for hypertension?
Camshia tablets, combining candesartan cilexetil and amlodipine besilate, serve as a therapeutic option for managing hypertension. Camshia Combination Tablets LD are designed with a lower proportion of amlodipine, 2.5 mg against 8 mg of candesartan in 1 tablet.
Candesartan cilexetil, an angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB), functions by inhibiting the action of angiotensin II on its receptors. This results in the relaxation of blood vessels, reducing peripheral resistance, and ultimately lowering blood pressure. On the other hand, amlodipine besilate belongs to the class of calcium channel blockers. It works by blocking the influx of calcium ions into vascular smooth muscle cells, leading to vasodilation and decreased vascular tone. By employing these dual mechanisms, Camshia tablets address hypertension from multiple angles, achieving a more comprehensive effect.
Clinical studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of Camshia tablets in reducing blood pressure levels. These tablets are generally well-tolerated and provide a significant decrease in systolic and diastolic blood pressure compared to baseline measurements. Additionally, the combination of candesartan cilexetil and amlodipine besilate allows for lower individual dosages of each component, minimizing the risk of adverse effects while maintaining therapeutic benefits.
