Drug Information:
Prestalia contains a combination of amlodipine and perindopril. Amlodipine is a calcium channel blocker. Amlodipine relaxes (widens) blood vessels and improves blood flow. Perindopril is an ACE inhibitor. ACE stands for angiotensin converting enzyme. Perindopril also widens blood vessels and also prevents the body from retaining water. Prestalia is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Do not use Prestalia if you are pregnant. If you become pregnant, stop taking this medicine and tell your doctor right away. Learn more
