What is Olmesartan and How to Take It
Olmesartan is classified as an angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB), a type of medication frequently prescribed for the treatment of hypertension (high blood pressure) and other cardiovascular conditions. Olmesartan is sold under the brand name Benicar.
Olmesartan is available in various dosage forms, including oral tablets. Other angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs) in the same class include Losartan, Valsartan, Candesartan, and Irbesartan.
Olmesartan functions by inhibiting the activity of angiotensin II. It is a hormone responsible for constricting blood vessels and stimulating the release of aldosterone, another hormone. This way, Olmesartan helps relax and expand blood vessels. This action leads to decreased blood pressure and alleviates the strain on the heart.
The recommended dosing for Olmesartan can vary depending on the specific condition being treated and the doctor’s advice. It is recommended to take it once daily. Olmesartan tablets can be taken with or without food. It’s recommended to take the tablet with a full glass of water. If you take your medication at the same time every day, you are more likely to remember to take it.
