Olmesartan Medoxomil Tablets – OLMESARTAN MEDOXOMIL belongs to a group of medicines called antihypertensive medicines, which are mainly used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). High blood pressure is a chronic (long-term) condition in which the blood pressure has continuously risen to a higher-than-normal level. If left untreated, this condition can increase the risk of heart-related conditions such as heart attack, heart failure, stroke, irregular heartbeat, and other complications. 

OLMESARTAN MEDOXOMIL contains olmesartan medoxomil, which is a prodrug and is hydrolyzed to olmesartan after absorption from the gastrointestinal tract. It is an angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB) that constricts blood vessels, raising blood pressure, so blocking angiotensin can cause constricted blood vessels to dilate. This effect allows the blood to flow more evenly in the blood vessels.
