How does AZOR work?

How does AZOR work?

AZOR is a combination of two medications that work together to lower blood pressure. Amlodipine is a calcium channel blocker (CCB). It works by relaxing your blood vessels to lower your blood pressure. Olmesartan is an angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB). Angiotensin II is a hormone that normally attaches to its signaling proteins (receptors) in the body to raise your blood pressure. Olmesartan blocks this interaction from happening to lower your blood pressure.
