About OLMIN H 40MG TABLET

OLMIN H 40MG TABLET belongs to a group of medications called 'anti-hypertensives' primarily used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). High blood pressure is a chronic (long-term) condition in which blood pressure is elevated persistently in higher than normal levels. If left untreated, this condition can increase the risk of heart-related diseases like heart attack, heart failure, stroke, irregular heartbeat and other complications.

OLMIN H 40MG TABLET contains ‘Olmesartan medoxomil’ which is a prodrug and is hydrolyzed to olmesartan during absorption from the gastrointestinal tract. It is an angiotensin-II receptor blocker (ARB) which narrows the blood vessels increasing the blood pressure, therefore blocking angiotensin can result in widening of the narrowed blood vessels. This effect allows the blood to flow more smoothly in the blood vessels.

OLMIN H 40MG TABLET is available in the form of a tablet. The dose and duration of the medicine are determined by the doctor. Swallow the tablet as a whole with a glass of water. Do not crush, chew, or break it. The common side-effects of OLMIN H 40MG TABLET are dizziness, headache, feeling sick (nausea), indigestion, diarrhoea, stomach ache, tiredness, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, bronchitis, flu-like symptoms, cough, pain particularly in the back, bones or joints, infection of the urinary tract, blood in the urine and swelling of ankles, feet, legs, hands or arms. Consult your doctor immediately if you experience severe diarrhoea, considerable weight loss or any other unwanted effects.

Do not take OLMIN H 40MG TABLET if you are allergic to ‘olmesartan medoximil’ or any ingredients present in it. OLMIN H 40MG TABLET should not be used in pregnant women, patients suffering from jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes) or gallbladder blockage, patients having diabetes or kidney failure and using blood pressure-lowering medicine containing aliskiren.
