How does Amlodipine (Generic Amlodipine) treat?

Amlodipine (Generic Amlodipine) tablets contain the active ingredient Amlodipine (Generic Amlodipine) besylate, which is a type of medicine called a calcium channel blocker. Calcium channel blockers act on the heart and blood vessels.

Amlodipine (Generic Amlodipine) works by slowing the movement of calcium through the muscle cells that are found in the walls of blood vessels. Amlodipine (Generic Amlodipine) does this by blocking 'calcium channels' in these muscle cells. Calcium is needed by muscle cells in order for them to contract, so by depriving them of calcium, Amlodipine (Generic Amlodipine) causes the muscle cells to relax.

Amlodipine (Generic Amlodipine) acts specifically on the muscle cells in the walls of arteries, causing them to relax. This allows the arteries in the body to widen, an effect that has two main uses.

The relaxing and widening of the small arteries in the body decreases the resistance that the heart has to push against in order to pump the blood around the body. This reduces the pressure within the blood vessels. Amlodipine (Generic Amlodipine) can therefore be used to treat high blood pressure.

The widening effect on the small arteries and the arteries in the heart also improves the blood and therefore oxygen supply to the heart. This feature means Amlodipine (Generic Amlodipine) can be used to treat angina. The chest pain of angina is caused by insufficient oxygen supply to the heart. As Amlodipine (Generic Amlodipine) improves this oxygen supply, and also reduces the effort the heart has to make to pump blood, it can be taken regularly to prevent angina attacks.
