What is Olmesar?


Olmesar widely known as Olmesartan is an Angiotensin II receptor antagonist, prescribed for high blood pressure. It works by blocking the actions of certain chemicals that tighten the blood vessels to ensure smooth blood flow.  This drug contains an active ingredient that helps patients to reduce high blood pressure. This drug can be taken as alone or as a complimentary pill with several other antihypertensive drugs. Hypertension is the major source of various cardiovascular diseases. As the systolic pressure rises above 120 mm Hg and diastolic pressure dips below 80 mm Hg, the pressure changes above and below the neutral BP range which causes weakening in the heart and hinders its normal functioning.  Olmesar also decreases the chances of future cardiovascular problems.



Understanding the ailments it is used for


Olmesar inhibits the action of angiotensin hormone which is useful in various cardiovascular conditions like:


§  Hypertension

§  Heart Stroke

§  Myocardial infarction

§   Angina pectoris


Olmesar is an effective drug that works by blocking the binding of Angiotensin-II to the receptors which is responsible for two prime effects i.e. constriction of blood vessels, salt and fluid retention in kidneys by forming aldosterone hormone. This drug stops the formation of Angiotensin II which in turn provides relaxation to the blood vessels or reduces the Vasoconstriction and the secretion of aldosterone.
