Olmesartan Medoxomil-HCTZ

Olmesartan medoxomil-hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) is a blood pressure medication sold under the brand name Benicar HCT®. It combines two medications to lower high blood pressure more effectively than either drug can do alone. This product comes in the form of a tablet and is taken once a day. It is approved for use in adults only.
 
Initially, the typical dosage is 20 mg/12.5 mg a day. However, your exact dosage will depend on other medical conditions you have, other medications you are taking, and whether you experience side effects. Keep in mind that it may take several weeks to see the full effects of this drug on your blood pressure.
