Thanks for your query.

Depin (Generic name - Nifedipine) is a strong medication and is known to reduce blood pressure drastically in short time. This is not a suitable medication to control blood pressure over long term.

If your blood pressure is under control with Telmakind AM, then do continue the same.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
