Blood Pressure Home > Exforge HCT Medication Information

Exforge HCT® is currently the only blood pressure medicine that contains three different drugs in the same tablet: amlodipine, valsartan, and hydrochlorothiazide. These active ingredients work together to help relax the blood vessels and decrease blood volume, effects that can help lower blood pressure and reduce water retention. This combination product is usually prescribed when two medications alone do not adequately control blood pressure.
Because Exforge HCT is not suitable for everyone, it's important to review the safety information for this medication with your healthcare provider before starting treatment. For example, make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any other health issues you may have, such as diabetes, congestive heart failure (CHF), or asthma.
(Click Exforge HCT for more information, including available strengths of the medication, common side effects, and whether your dosage needs to be taken at a particular time each day.)
