Can You Take Too Much Amturnide?

Amturnide® (aliskiren-amlodipine-hydrochlorothiazide) is a prescription high blood pressure medication. It contains a diuretic (hydrochlorothiazide), a calcium channel blocker (amlodipine), and a renin inhibitor (aliskiren). As with most medications, it is possible to take too much Amturnide.
 
The specific effects of an overdose can be dangerous, but will vary, depending on a number of factors, including the Amturnide dosage and whether it was taken with any other medications or substances.
