Drug Information:
Tekamlo contains a combination of aliskiren and amlodipine. Aliskiren is an anti-hypertensive (blood pressure lowering) medication. It works by decreasing substances in the body that narrow blood vessels and raise blood pressure. Amlodipine belongs to a group of medicines called calcium channel blockers. Amlodipine relaxes (widens) blood vessels and improves blood flow. Tekamlo is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Tekamlo may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide. Learn more
