You will need to answer a few questions about your health before completing purchase of this item.

Exforge is a prescription medication that is used to help treat high blood pressure, also known as hypertension. Having high blood pressure means that you have a reading of 140/90mmHg or above. 

Amlodipine / Valsartan

Exforge contains two substances called amlodipine and valsartan. Amlodipine stops calcium from moving into the blood vessel wall which stops the blood vessels from tightening. Valsartan works by blocking the effect of angiotensin II, a substance made by the body that tightens blood vessels. 

You should only ever use Exforge as it has been prescribed to you. Usually, you will need to take your medication at the same time every day. This medication can be taken with or without food, however, it should not be taken with grapefruit or grapefruit juice. 

You should only ever use the dosage of Exforge that has been prescribed to you. The usual dosage of Exforge is one tablet a day, swallowed whole with the help of water.
