Exforge HCT is indicated for the treatment of high blood pressure (hypertension). It contains a combination of amlodipine, hydrochlorothiazide, and valsartan. Amlodipine is a calcium channel blocker, hydrochlorothiazide is a thiazide diuretic, and valsartan is an angiotensin II receptor antagonist. These components work together to relax blood vessels, prevent the body from absorbing too much salt, and keep blood vessels from narrowing, thus lowering blood pressure and improving blood flow.
