Z-CILI-T (Clinidipine Telmisartan 10mg 40mg Tablet)
Z-CILI-T C is composed of Clinidipine 20 mg.and Telmisartan 40mg. Cilnidipine is a dihydropyridine calcium antagonist. Clinidipine possesses a slow-onset, long-lasting vasodilating effect.
Telmisartan is an angiotensin II receptor antagonist (ARB) used in the management of hypertension
• Cilnidipine +Telmisartan is used in the treatment of Hypertension (high blood pressure).
Mechanism of action
Cilnidipine acts on the L-type calcium channels and blocks the incoming calcium and suppressing the contraction of blood vessels, thereby reducing blood pressure. It also acts on the N-type calcium channel located at the end of the sympathetic nerve, inhibiting the emission of nor-epinephrine and decreases the blood pressure.
Telmisartan interferes with the binding of angiotensin II to the angiotensin II AT1-receptor by binding reversibly and selectively to the receptors in vascular smooth muscle and the adrenal gland
As prescribed by the physician.
Cilnidipine absorbs very rapidly and attains a maximum peaked concentration after 2 hours. Its distribution tends to be higher in the liver as well as in kidneys, plasma and other tissues.
Telmisartan’s bioavailability depends on dosage. Food slightly decreases the bioavailability (a decrease of about 6% is seen when the 40-mg dose is administered with food).
Clinidipine’s distribution is higher in the liver as well as in kidneys, plasma and other tissues. It doesn’t present a high accumulation in the tissue after repeated oral administration. Cilnidipine is reported to present very low bioavailability, approximately 13%.
The Volume of distribution of Telmisartan is 500 L.
Cilnidipine excretes through the urine in a proportion of 20% of the administered dose and 80% is eliminated by the feces.
Most the Telmisartan’s administered dose (>97%) eliminates unchanged in feces via biliary excretion; only minute amounts were found in the urine
