Pacivan A 20/5mg Tablet is a combined medication comprising two active components: Olmesartan & Amlodipine. It is formulated as an oral tablet and is primarily prescribed for managing hypertension (high blood pressure).
Olmesartan: It belongs to the class of drugs known as angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs). Olmesartan works by inhibiting the action of angiotensin II, a substance in the body that constricts blood vessels, thereby helping blood vessels relax and dilate. This action leads to lowered blood pressure.
Amlodipine: This medication is classified as a calcium channel blocker (CCB). Amlodipine works by preventing the influx of calcium ions into vascular smooth muscle cells, leading to vasodilation (relaxation of blood vessels) and decreased peripheral resistance, resulting in lowered blood pressure.
Pacivan A 20/5mg Tablet is prescribed for:
Managing hypertension (high blood pressure) by reducing blood pressure levels and maintaining them within a normal range.
Its combination of Olmesartan and Amlodipine offers complementary mechanisms of action, effectively controlling blood pressure.
Mechanism of Action:
Olmesartan: Blocks the effects of angiotensin II, leading to vasodilation and decreased blood pressure.
Amlodipine: Inhibits calcium influx into vascular smooth muscle cells, resulting in relaxation of blood vessels and decreased peripheral resistance, thereby reducing blood pressure.
Take Pacivan A 20/5mg Tablet orally, with or without food, as directed by your healthcare provider. The dosage may vary based on individual response and the severity of hypertension. Follow the prescribed regimen strictly and ensure regular monitoring of blood pressure levels.
