Clinical Effects of Olmesartan Medoxomil/Amlodipine/Hydrochlorothiazide

Clinical studies have shown that olmesartan medoxomil/amlodipine/hydrochlorothiazide lowers blood pressure more effectively than using just two of the individual components of the medication.
 
In one clinical study, people given olmesartan medoxomil/amlodipine/hydrochlorothiazide had lower blood pressure, on average, after eight weeks than people who were taking olmesartan plus hydrochlorothiazide, olmesartan plus amlodipine, or amlodipine plus hydrochlorothiazide. This makes sense, because olmesartan medoxomil/amlodipine/hydrochlorothiazide combines three blood pressure medications.
