Tarka Medication - Uses & Side Effects

Tarka is used to treat high blood pressure. It combines two blood pressure drugs such as an ACE inhibitor and a calcium channel blocker. The ACE inhibitor lowers blood pressure by preventing a chemical in your blood known as angiotensin I from converting to a more potent form that narrows the blood vessels and increases salt and water retention. The calcium channel blocker also works to keep the blood vessels open, and eases the heart's workload by reducing the force and rate of your heartbeat.
