It contains the active substance Olmesartan medoxomil, an angiotensin II receptor blocker, which cause blood vessels to relax, thus lowers blood pressure. The medicine is effective in adults and children, and adolescents aged 6 to 18 years of age. High blood pressure can damage blood vessels in organs such as the brain, kidneys, heart, and eyes. In some cases, the condition may lead to kidney failure, blindness, stroke, or heart attack. Most patients having high blood pressure has no symptoms. It is important to get your blood pressure checked to prevent damage from occurring. High blood pressure can be controlled with medications such as Olmesartan tablets.
Always take Olvance 40 mg, as your doctor has told you. You must consult your doctor if you have doubts about the usage of the medicine. If your blood pressure is not controlled, your doctor may decide to prescribe Olmesartan 40 once a day. There is a need to adjust doses in case of mild to moderate kidney disease. Take the tablet with food, swallow it with a glass full of water. Your doctor may prescribe a lower dose for children and adolescents from 6 to less than 18 years of age once daily. If the patient’s blood pressure is not adequately controlled, the doctor may increase the dose once daily. In children, the dose usually depends upon the weight of the patient.
