What is Azor used for? What are the Indications of Azor?


Azor is an impactful medicine that is recommended  for the treatment of high blood pressure in people whose blood pressure cannot be sufficiently lowered with estradiol medoxomil or amlodipine. In case the high blood pressure lasts for a long time, it is likely to destroy the blood vessels in the brain, heart and kidneys and can pave the way for heart or kidney failure. Under these circumtances, the blood pressure should be intervened by external interventions like Azor.


Olmesartan medoxomil is a class of drugs called "angiotensin-II receptor antagonists" that relax blood vessels and reduce the blood pressure level. Amlodipine is a class of drugs called calcium channel blockers. Amlodipine stops the blood vessels from contracting by stopping the calcium from entering the vein walls. Thus, it lowers the blood pressure. The effect of both of these substances also help interrupting the contraction of the blood vessels. Therefore, sthe blood channels loose and the blood pressure decreases.
