Olmin H20 Tablet

My dr prescribed me a tablet for controlling my blood pressure. The tablet's name is Olmin 20 H but i forgot when i have to take it now... Is it daily after meals or before meals? Pls help me.

olmesartan for blood pressure

I am taking olmesartan + metoprolol 50 in the morning and amlodipine + hydrochlorthiazide 5/12.5 in the evening. Despite that, whenever I eat a high sodium diet my bp becomes very high (170/90). I was advised to take met xl t (telmisarta) instead as olmesartan causes me side effects. Please advise. ## Well, it would seem that you are sodium sensitive and are always going to have to watch your sodium intake, according to NIH studies. As to the medications, Met Xl contains a time released formulation of Metoprolol, not Telmisartan. The U.S. FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. Who told you it contained Telmisartan? ## Since changing to generic Benicar (olmesartan), my blood pressure has skyrocketed. Ple...

any difference in olmesartan and telema

My wife has been prescribed Olmesartan, but the Doctor gave telmestran. Is there any major change in the medicine as the generic is the same perhaps. ## They are in the same medication class, but they are two different medications, Telma contains Telmisartan, rather than Olemsartan.
