I take 100MG of Losartan and 10 MG of amlodipine, but as they are both for high blood pressure should I be taking both of them?
Yes, amlodipine and losartan can be taken together to control blood pressure. They both have different modes of action by which they regulate blood pressure.
Amlodipine is in a group of drugs called calcium channel blockers. It relaxes (widens) blood vessels and improves blood flow. Amlodipine is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) or chest pain (angina) and other conditions caused by coronary artery disease.
Losartan is in a group of drugs called angiotensin II receptor antagonists. It keeps blood vessels from narrowing, which lowers blood pressure and improves blood flow.
Losartan is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). It is also used to lower the risk of stroke in certain people with heart disease.
after researching both of these medications I have found that they both can and are used together due to the fact that they (if you will) compliment and work together to accomplish the job of reducing high blood pressure, this does not relate to you but on the one it is used in other conditions as well but they are safe to use together
I am currently taking Losartan Potassium 100mg and Amlodipine 5 mg together and my blood pressure has been close to normal. It was 150/101, many days going to the doctors office and is now running 127/61 just last night. These two meds compliment the other for my body and metabolism quite well.
I take 50mg losartan
and 10 mg amlodipine
I get a dizzy sensation on a regular basis.
Should I take one in the morning and one in the evening.
