About Olzox M 50 Tablet 15's

Olzox M 50 Tablet 15's is a combination of blood pressure-lowering medicine, primarily used to treat high blood pressure. Hypertension or high blood pressure is a chronic condition in which the force exerted by the blood against the artery wall is high. As a result, it leads to heart disease, irregular heartbeat, and other complications.

Olzox M 50 Tablet 15's combines two medicines, Olmesartan Medoxomil and Metoprolol, which help lower raised blood pressure effectively. Olmesartan Medoxomil 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. Metoprolol (beta-blocker) helps relax our blood vessels by blocking the action of certain natural substances in your body. This lowers your blood pressure and helps reduce your risk of a stroke, a heart attack, other heart problems, or kidney problems in the future. This medicine needs to be taken regularly to be effective.

You can take Olzox M 50 Tablet 15's with food or without food. It should be swallowed whole with a glass of water. Do not chew, bite, or break it. Your doctor will advise you on how often you take your tablets based on your medical condition. In some cases, you may experience headache, nausea, dizziness, diarrhoea, Indigestion and low blood pressure. Most of these side effects of Olzox M 50 Tablet 15's do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, reach out to your 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 the risk of heart disease and stroke. Inform your doctor if you suffer from kidney, liver, heart disease, or diabetes. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, please tell your doctor so that the dosage of Olzox M 50 Tablet 15's can be prescribed accordingly. Olzox M 50 Tablet 15's should not give to children under 12 years of age. Do not use Olzox M 50 Tablet 15's if you have low blood pressure (hypotension) or 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 Olzox M 50 Tablet 15's. Reducing the amount of table salt (sodium chloride) in your food often relieves the swelling of the body. It would be best if you had normal potassium and electrolytes level check-ups while taking Olzox M 50 Tablet 15's to prevent any complications.

    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). Additionally, it 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 the pressure when your heart is at the resting stage between heartbeats. If your blood pressure is 140/90 mm of Hg, 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 and 120/80 mm Hg.

    FAQs

    Olzox M 50 Tablet 15's combines two medications, Olmesartan Medoxomil and Metoprolol, to control high blood pressure effectively. Olmesartan relaxes and dilates blood vessels. This reduces your blood pressure and allows your heart to flow blood more efficiently throughout your body. Metoprolol works by altering how your body reacts to certain nerve signals, particularly those in the heart. It lowers your heart rate and makes it easier for your heart to circulate blood throughout your body.

    You can boost your heart's health by making key lifestyle changes such as quitting smoking, cutting alcohol, exercising regularly, eating a balanced diet, and managing stress.
