Olmesartan 40mg Tablet - Manufacturers & Suppliers - Third Party Contract Manufacturing - PCD Pharma Franchise
Olmesartan 40mg Tablets are formulated using a medication called Olmesartan. It's an angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB) that works by preventing the body from producing a chemical that causes blood vessels to constrict. As a result, the blood vessels dilate. It decreases blood pressure while increasing blood and oxygen circulation to the heart. Olmesartan is a blood pressure medication that can be used alone or in combination with other medications to treat excessive blood pressure (hypertension). The heart and arteries may not operate correctly if high blood pressure persists for a long time. A stroke, heart failure, or kidney failure can occur as a result of this damage to the brain, heart, and kidney blood arteries. Blood pressure control can lower the risk of strokes and heart attacks.
Olmesartan 40mg Tablets should be taken according to the doctor's instructions for dosage and duration. The medicine should be taken by mouth once a day, with or without meals, by each individual patient. To receive the best benefit from this medicine, take it on a regular basis and don't miss any doses. Even if you feel OK, do not stop taking this medicine. The majority of persons with high blood pressure do not experience any symptoms.
