Blood Pressure Home > Tekamlo Medication Information

TekamloTM (aliskiren/amlodipine) is a prescription drug used for the treatment of high blood pressure (known medically as hypertension). It contains two different active ingredients that work together to prevent the action of a certain enzyme in the body and to decrease the rate at which calcium moves into the blood vessel walls.
 
In clinical trials, this medication proved more effective at reducing blood pressure than when the two active ingredients were taken separately. However, it is not appropriate for everyone, so prior to taking Tekamlo, inform your healthcare provider about any other medical conditions you have and any other drugs you are taking. If you are a woman, tell your healthcare provider if you are pregnant or may become pregnant, or if you are breastfeeding.
