About Olmeblu-H 20 Tablet
OLMEBLU H 20MG TABLET belongs to a group of medications called ‘anti-hypertensives‘ primarily used for lowering high blood pressure (hypertension) by removing extra fluid (electrolytes) from the body. High blood pressure is a chronic condition in which the blood’s force against the artery wall is high. As a result, it increases the risk of heart-related diseases like heart attack, heart failure, stroke, irregular heartbeat, and other complications.
OLMEBLU H 20MG TABLET is a combination of two medicines, namely: Olmesartan medoximil and Hydrochlorothiazide. Olmesartan medoximil is a prodrug and breaks down into active form, i.e., olmesartan once absorbed in the GIT (Gastrointestinal tract). It is an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) that blocks the hormone angiotensin, thereby relaxing and widening the narrowed blood vessels. This allows the blood to flow more smoothly in the blood vessels, and the heart can pump more efficiently. On the other hand, Hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic or water pill that works by removing extra water/fluid and certain electrolytes overload from the body. Together, OLMEBLU H 20MG TABLET lowers the fluid overload, raised blood pressure, improves blood flow, and reduce the future risk of a heart attack and stroke.
You can take OLMEBLU H 20MG TABLET with food or without food with a glass of water. Do not chew, bite, or break it. Your doctor will advise you how often you take your tablets based on your medical condition. You may experience nausea, upset stomach, dehydration, headache, diarrhoea, electrolyte imbalance, dizziness, and decreased blood pressure in some cases. Most of these side effects of OLMEBLU H 20MG TABLET do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, reach out to your doctor.
Do not use potassium supplements or salt substitutes unless the doctor has told you. In rare cases, OLMEBLU H 20MG TABLET can cause a condition that results in the skeletal muscle problem, leading to further kidney failure. If you notice unexplained muscle pain, dark colour urine, tenderness, or weakness, especially if you also have a fever or unexplained tiredness, immediately contact the doctor.
Try not to stop taking this medicine of your own. Let your doctor know about this, as it may cause a rise in blood pressure and increase heart disease and stroke risk. Inform your doctor if you are suffering from any kidney or liver or heart disease or are diabetic. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, do not take OLMEBLU H 20MG TABLET as it a category D pregnancy drug and may harm the baby. Do not use OLMEBLU H 20MG TABLET if you cannot urinate, are dehydrated, have low blood pressure (hypotension), and have or have had cardiogenic shock (sudden stopping of blood flow to the heart). Please tell your doctor if you are taking any other medicines or are allergic to this medicine. Reducing table salt (sodium chloride) in your food often helps lower blood pressure.
