How Cilacar TC 12.5mg Tablet works

Cilacar TC 12.5mg Tablet contains – Telmisartan, Cilnidipine, Chlorthalidone

Telmisartan blocks angiotensin II from binding to receptor sites in many tissues, including vascular smooth muscle and adrenal glands. This action inhibits the vasoconstrictive and aldosterone-secreting effects of angiotensin II, which reduces blood pressure.

Cilnidipine decreases blood pressure and is used to treat hypertension and its comorbidities. Due to its blocking action at the N-type and L-type calcium channel, cilnidipine dilates both arterioles and venules, reducing the pressure in the capillary bed.

Chlorthalidone works by making the body lose excess water and salt.
