BENEPACK T TABLET is a combination of Benidipine and Telmisartan which belongs to the group of medicines called Calcium channel blockers and Angiotensin II receptor antagonists respectively. It is used to treat high blood pressure. Hypertension is a condition in which the force of the blood against the artery walls is high, generally characterized by symptoms such as severe headache, nose bleeding, weakness, disturbed vision, chest pain and shortness of breath.

During treatment, your doctor might advise you to get a regular blood pressure check with a kidney function test to assess your kidney function and blood pressure.

HOW BENEPACK T TABLET WORKS

BENEPACK T TABLET helps in treating high blood pressure, where benidipine works by relaxing the blood vessels and reducing the pressure on the artery wall thus helping the heart to pump blood more easily throughout the body resulting in reduced pressure on the artery walls of the blood vessel and telmisartan blocks the effect of angiotensin II receptors (chemical structures that transduce the signals to narrow down blood vessels) that causes relaxation and widening of blood vessels, thus lowering the blood pressure.
