About OLSAVAS AM TABLET

OLSAVAS AM TABLET is a combination of medication containing blood pressure-lowering medicines primarily used to treat high blood pressure. OLSAVAS AM TABLET is used alone or in combination with other blood pressure-lowering medications. Hypertension or high blood pressure is a chronic condition in which the blood's force against the artery wall is high. As a result, it leads to heart diseases, irregular heartbeat, and other complications.

OLSAVAS AM TABLET contains Olmesartan (angiotensin receptor blocker) and Amlodipine (calcium channel blocker). Olmesartan 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. Amlodipine, on the other hand, acts by relaxing the blood vessels. This reduces the heart's workload and makes the heart more efficient at pumping blood throughout the body. Thus, collectively, both help lower high blood pressure, reducing heart attack, or stroke chances. 

You can take OLSAVAS AM 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 should take your tablets based on your medical condition. You may experience headaches, drowsiness, ankle swelling, nausea, dizziness, low blood pressure in some cases. Most of these side effects of OLSAVAS AM TABLET do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, reach out to your doctor.
