Telmisartan and Rosuvastatin Calcium tablets come under the branding Macard R. It refers to the class of drugs called anti-hypertensives used to prevent high blood pressure associated with high cholesterol levels.  The medication is a group of Telmisartan and Rosuvastatin. Telmisartan is a blood pressure-lowering formulation that works by blocking the action of a hormone known as angiotensin II in the human body that causes the narrowing of blood vessels leading to high blood pressure. Thereby, it widens and relaxes blood vessels. This lowers high blood pressure. Rosuvastatin is a lipid-lowering supplement that works by blocking liver enzymes causing the liver to make low cholesterol. 


So, it raises the uptake and breakdown of cholesterol already in the blood by the liver. Thus, lowers the levels of lipids called cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood when lifestyle changes on their own have failed. Telmisartan and Rosuvastatin Calcium tablets help in decreasing the ‘bad’ cholesterol LDL and increasing the ‘good’ cholesterol  HDL by blocking the human body’s production of ‘bad’ cholesterol. It also improves the human body’s ability to remove it from your blood. High blood pressure or high levels of cholesterol are two health diseases that occur simultaneously in certain patients. It is a chronic condition in which the force exerted by the blood against the artery wall is high. High cholesterol is called hyperlipidemia or dyslipidemia when there is an unhealthy balance of cholesterol in the blood.
