Difference Between Amlodipine And Candesartan?
. What are the functions of Amlodipine and Candesartan? Can hypertension sufferers consume continuously one of Amlodipine and Candesartan? thanks.
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Both amlodipine and candesartan, both of which are drugs used to lower blood pressure, the difference is the mechanism of action and the class of the drug. Amlodipine works as an inhibitor of calcium levels, while candesartan works as an inhibitor of angiotensin receptors, chemicals in the body that will eventually make the blood vessels to relax and widen, so that blood pressure will drop.
Both of these drugs, and drugs for other chronic diseases such as diabetes, are designed to be consumed continuously, because this disease cannot be completely cured. Even if there are effects, the negative effects will be greater if the treatment is not regular than the effects of the drug itself. So for sufferers of chronic diseases such as high blood pressure and diabetes, there is no need to worry about taking drugs for a long time because research is available to ensure their safety. By taking medication regularly you are actually protecting yourself from the potential for more severe damage caused by drug complications.
In addition, of course, for people with high blood pressure, must support their health by maintaining a healthy lifestyle, such as avoiding cigarettes and alcohol, exercising routinely according to ability, reducing consumption of salty foods, increasing consumption of water, and routinely consult a doctor once a month. So, hopefully answering your question.
