Now a a days my BP is again reaching 140/95 and doctor prescribed me cresar H. Kindly advise me which medicine is better. Amlodipine 5 Mg or Cresar 40 Mg. What is the difference between these two medicines.

1) cresar (Telmisartan) and amlodepin are 2 different drugs. 2) Cresar is a better drug to start with. 3) Cresar H is a combination of two medicines and is more effective in BP lowering. 4) But medication alone do not help unless accompanied with lifestyle changes like daily exercise for 30-35 mins, healthy diet, salt control avoid eating high salty food like chips, namkeens, pickles, papads etc, quit smoking and drinking (if you do) 5) Also I hope your lipid profile and echo has been done, if not please get them done.
