The uses of Olmecip-H include: Olmesartan (ol-ma-SAR-tan) and hydrochlorothiazide (hye-droe-klor-oh-THYE-a-zide) is a combination medicine that belongs to the class of medicines called high blood pressure medicines (antihypertensives). It is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension).
Olmecip controls high blood pressure. It works by blocking the effect of a hormone called angiotensin II. Unopposed, this substance prompts the blood vessels to contract, an action that tends to raise blood pressure.
Olmecip relaxes and expands the blood vessels, allowing pressure to drop. Olmecip may be prescribed alone or with other blood pressure medications, such as diuretics that help the body get rid of excess water. Olmecip HCT provides just such a combination. It contains Olmecip plus hydrochlorothiazide, a common diuretic that increases the output of urine. This removes excess fluid from the body and helps lower blood pressure.
