Amlodipine Besylate/Celecoxib

What is Consensi used for?

This product contains 2 medications: amlodipine and celecoxib. This combination medication is used to treat people who have both high blood pressure and arthritis. Amlodipine belongs to a class of drugs known as calcium channel blockers. It works by relaxing blood vessels so blood can flow more easily. Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. Celecoxib is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), specifically a COX-2 inhibitor. It is used to reduce pain, swelling, and joint stiffness from arthritis.
