Omezest H 20/12.5 is a combination of two medicines - Olmesatan and Hydrochlorothiazide. These two active ingredients in the medicine work together to control high blood pressure differently. The dose generally depends on a patient's condition and how they respond to the treatment. It is important to keep taking medicine until your doctor tells you not to discontinue treatment.    Hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic that will make you urinate more so; it is best to avoid taking this medicine within four hours of bed. Take it regularly to benefit from it, even if you feel well. People with high blood pressure do not usually show symptoms; if you discontinue treatment, your risk of stroke and heart attack increases.  

   You should not take Olmesartan/Hydrochlorothiazide combination if you:

   Have had or have an allergy to Olmesartan or Hydrochlorothiazide or any other ingredient of the medicine 

   Are you Pregnant or breastfeeding

   Have diabetes

   Are you going to have surgery ( in such a case, surely inform the doctor before going for it that you are taking this drug)

   Have Kidney problems

   Have Heart problems

   Have Liver disease

 

The following drugs should be avoided in case the doctor prescribes you Olmesartan  to avoid possible drug interactions:

 

  • Prazosin
  • Propranolol
  • Verapamil
  • Benazepril
  • Captopril
  • Carbamazepine
  • Cisapride
  • Cyclosporine
  • Dofetilide
  • Alprostadil
  • Baclofen
  • Glyceryl trinitrate
  • Clonidine
  • Ciclosporin and heparin can cause hyperkalemia when taken along with Olmesartan

All medicines have side effects; sometimes, they are serious, but most of the time, they are not. You need to consult a doctor if the following effects are observed such as:

 

  — Abdominal pain and cramps

  — Dehydration or loss of too much water

  — Fainting

  — Decrease in vision or eye pain

  — High potassium levels in the blood and its symptoms are muscle fatigue, slow heartbeat, etc.

  — Unusual change in the amount of urine

  — Headache

  — Nausea and vomiting

  — Bronchitis

  — Flu-like symptoms

  — Back pain

  — Pharyngitis

  — Arthritis

  — Hyperuricaemia

  — Hyperkalemia

 

To avoid dizziness, be careful and slow while rising from a sitting or lying position.

The doctor is the one who is going to decide and select the best suitable dose for you. The usual dose starts from 20/12.5  mg and can be increased to 40 mg/12.5. It can be adjusted by the doctor depending upon the severity and need of the patient's condition.

 

The combination tablets can be taken with or without food. There is, as such, no necessity prescribed for the product. It is advisable to take this drug at least 4 hours before going to bed as doing this will prevent you from getting up from sleep time and again urinating. It would be best for you to take medicine simultaneously each day. It will also lower the chances of missing a dose.

 

If taken, the excess dosage can lead to lightheadedness, dizziness, and a fast heartbeat.
