Generic Name:Trandolapril and Verapamil

Tarka is a prescription drug licensed to control high blood pressure in adults. The medication causes blood vessels to relax, which lowers blood pressure and makes it easier for the heart to pump blood. Although it cannot cure high blood pressure, the drug can help decrease the health risks that can occur with long-term high blood pressure, including a heart attack or stroke. Tarka comes in a tablet form that is taken once daily. Tarka has the active ingredients of two medications trandolapril and verapamil hydrochloride ER which are prescription medicines that have been licensed for controlling high blood pressure or hypertension in adults. It is not a cure for high blood pressure. Tarka is used to control high blood pressure in adults. By allowing the blood vessels to relax, Tarka decreases blood pressure and makes it easier for the heart to pump blood. The medicine is a combination of two different drugs; their combined effects cause a greater drop in blood pressure than when either medication is used alone. Tarka has not been approved for use in children, and there are no other universally accepted Tarka uses at this time.
