About Olmetime-Amh 40mg Tablet 10's

Olmetime-Amh 40mg Tablet 10's 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.

Olmetime-Amh 40mg Tablet 10's is a combination of three medicines: Olmesartan medoximil, Amlodipine, and Hydrochlorothiazide. Olmesartan medoximil is a prodrug and breaks down into active form, i.e., olmesartan once absorbed in the GIT (Gastrointestinal tract). An angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) blocks the hormone angiotensin, thereby relaxing and widening the narrowed blood vessels. Amlodipine is a calcium channel blocker; it reduces the heart's workload and makes it more efficient at pumping blood throughout the body. Hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic or water pill that removes extra water/fluid and certain electrolyte overload from the body. Together, Olmetime-Amh 40mg Tablet 10's lowers fluid overload, raises blood pressure, improves blood flow, and reduces the future risk of a heart attack and stroke.

Depending upon your medical condition, you are advised to take Olmetime-Amh 40mg Tablet 10's for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you. The most common side effects of Olmetime-Amh 40mg Tablet 10's are nausea, upset stomach, dehydration, headache, diarrhoea, electrolyte imbalance, headache, feeling exhausted, swollen ankles, dizziness, and decreased blood pressure in some cases. Most of these side effects of Olmetime-Amh 40mg Tablet 10's 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 your doctor tells you. In rare cases, Olmetime-Amh 40mg Tablet 10's can cause a condition that results in a skeletal muscle problem, leading to further kidney failure. If you notice unexplained muscle pain, dark-coloured 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 kidney, liver, heart disease, or diabetes. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, do not take Olmetime-Amh 40mg Tablet 10's as it is a category D pregnancy drug and may harm the baby. Do not use the Olmetime-Amh 40mg Tablet 10's if you cannot urinate, are dehydrated, have low blood pressure (hypotension), or have had cardiogenic shock (sudden stopping 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.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Hypertension: It is a chronic condition when blood pressure is too high. This condition can lead to hardened arteries (blood vessels), decreasing the blood and oxygen flow to the heart. Blood pressure is the measurement of the force our heart uses to pump blood to all body parts. Raised blood pressure can cause chest pain (angina) and heart attack (when the blood supply to the heart is blocked). High blood pressure also causes brain damage (stroke) and kidney failure. High blood pressure can be diagnosed with the help of a blood pressure monitor or sphygmomanometer. Systolic pressure is the pressure when the heart pumps blood out. On the other hand, diastolic pressure is when your heart is at the resting stage between heartbeats. If your blood pressure is 140/90 mm of Hg, it means the systolic pressure is 140 mm of Hg, and diastolic pressure is 90 mm of Hg. Ideal blood pressure should be between 90/60 mm of Hg and 120/80 mm of Hg.
