Our expert says:
Amlodipine is a blood pressure tablet in the group called calcium channel blockers, it works by slowing the heart and thus lowering the blood pressure, Indapamide is a diuretic that reduces the blood pressure by removing fluid from the body through the kidneys. Enalapril works on a chemical substance in the kidney (ACE) causing a lowering of blood pressure - it does protect the kidneys by lowering bloodpressure, but does not assist the kidneys in their functioning. A doctor would increase dosage of medication if the blood pressure is not controlled with current medication - best way to determine this is to take your blood pressure daily for a week and work out the mean blood pressure.
