Ferbessa is a fixed combination. Ferbessa is a combination of two active ingredients, perindopril and amlodipine. Perindopril is an ACE (angiotensin converting enzyme) inhibitor. Amlodipine is a calcium antagonist (which belongs to a class of medicines called dihydropyridines).
Together they work to widen and relax the blood veesels, which results in a reduction of blood pressure. Blood can flow through the body more easily and the heart does not need to work so hard.
Ferbessa is prescribed for treatment of:
- high blood pressure (hypertension) and/or treatment of stable coronary artery disease (a condition where the blood supply to the heart is reduced or blocked).
Subject to medical prescription.
Concentration and pharmaceutical form: 4 mg/5 mg; 8 mg/5 mg tablets
