Olmecip 40 is currently being used as an antihypertensive agent for patients intolerant of other high blood pressure medicines belongs to the drug class angiotensin-converting enzyme. It contains the active ingredient Olmesartan which is the latest angiotensin-II receptor blocker approved for the treatment of hypertension. The once-daily dosing, minimal adverse effects, and a well-tolerated safety profile make it an ideal treatment for those who are failed to respond to other anti-hypertensive drugs. The drug may also help to reduce the risk of cardiovascular events. But more studies are needed to determine whether the hypertensive drug might prove useful in treating cardiovascular problems.
Olmesartan also reduces the chances of future cardiovascular health problems. Olmesartan is a prodrug that works by blocking the binding of Angiotensin-II to the receptors. Angiotensin-II has two prime effects:
- Constriction of blood vessels
- Salt and fluid retention in kidneys by forming aldosterone hormone.
Olmesartan stops the formation of Angiotensin-II which in turn causes relaxation of blood vessels or reduces the Vasoconstriction and the secretion of aldosterone.
