Question over 5 years ago

How does Cresar work

Dr. Gaurav MBBS , General Physician

Cresar contains telmisartan which is an antihypertensive drug that works by preventing a chemical (angiotensin II) to bind with a receptor. This causes relaxation of blood vessels, it also prevents the synthesis and release of aldosterone (a hormone whose hyperactivity results in high blood pressure). In this way Cresar decreases the blood pressure.
