Overview

Introduction

Olmezest CH 20 Tablet is a medicine used to treat hypertension (high blood pressure). It is a combination of two medicines that helps to control blood pressure when a single medication is not effective. It helps to reduce high blood pressure, thus lowering the chances of any future heart attack and stroke. It is taken by mouth (orally), with food, preferably at the same time each day. Regular monitoring of kidney function and electrolytes is important while using this medicine. This medicine may cause dehydration, so it is better to take plenty of fluids. Inform the doctor if you develop extreme thirst, muscle weakness, or dry mouth. Dizziness may occur due to low blood pressure but this gets better with time.

How Olmezest CH Tablet works

Olmezest CH 20 Tablet is a combination of two medicines: Olmesartan and chlorthalidone which lower blood pressure effectively. Olmesartan is an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB). It works by blocking the hormone angiotensin thereby relaxing blood vessels. This allows the blood to flow more smoothly and the heart to pump more efficiently. Chlorthalidone is a diuretic that removes extra water and certain electrolytes from the body. Over time it also relaxes blood vessels and improves blood flow.
