Act Olmesartan Indication

Olmesartan belongs to the class of medications called angiotensin II receptor blockers. It is used to reduce blood pressure by blocking the actions of a chemical (angiotensin II) that causes blood vessels to constrict or tighten. It is used to treat mild to moderate high blood pressure. Your blood pressure may start to decrease within 1 to 2 weeks of starting Act Olmesartan (Olmesartan-medoxomil). Olmesartan may be used alone or in combination with a diuretic (water pill).

When blood pressure is allowed to remain high for a long time, the blood vessels of the heart, kidneys, and brain may become damaged. This puts a person at increased risk for Heart Attack and Stroke as well as kidney failure and blindness. Keeping blood pressure in the normal range can reduce the risk for these conditions.

Act Olmesartan (Olmesartan-medoxomil) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Act Olmesartan (Olmesartan-medoxomil) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Act Olmesartan (Olmesartan-medoxomil) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Act Olmesartan (Olmesartan-medoxomil) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Act Olmesartan (Olmesartan-medoxomil), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Act Olmesartan (Olmesartan-medoxomil) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Act Olmesartan (Olmesartan-medoxomil) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Act Olmesartan (Olmesartan-medoxomil) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Act Olmesartan Dosage

For adult patients, the usual recommended starting dose of olmesartan is 20 mg once daily. Your doctor may recommend a dose increase of olmesartan to 40 mg daily if your blood pressure remains too high. Olmesartan may be taken with or without food, but should be taken in the same manner each day.

For pediatric patients, between the ages of 6 and 16 years of age, the usual dose is based on weight. Children weighing between 20 kg to less than 35 kg should receive 10 mg once daily up to a maximum of 20 mg daily. The dose for children weighing more than 35 kg is 20 mg once daily. Olmesartan may be taken with or without food, but should be taken in the same manner each day.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important that Act Olmesartan (Olmesartan-medoxomil) be taken exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store Act Olmesartan (Olmesartan-medoxomil) at room temperature, protect it from light and moisture, and keep it out of the reach of children.

Act Olmesartan Precautions

There may be an interaction between olmesartan and any of the following:

If you are taking any of these medications, speak with your doctor or pharmacist. Depending on your specific circumstances, your doctor may want you to:

  • stop taking one of the medications,
  • change one of the medications to another,
  • change how you are taking one or both of the medications, or

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with Act Olmesartan (Olmesartan-medoxomil). Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.

Act Olmesartan Warnings

Before you begin taking a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should take Act Olmesartan (Olmesartan-medoxomil).

Drowsiness/reduced alertness: Blood pressure medications may cause drowsiness or dizziness. Avoid driving or operating machinery until you know whether the medication affects you in this way.

Kidney disease: Olmesartan may affect the function of the kidneys, causing decreased kidney function, kidney failure, or possibly death. Certain people have experienced changes in kidney function (e.g., people with narrowed blood vessels in their kidneys, or those with severe Congestive Heart Failure). The use of diuretics (water pills), nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), or aliskiren may further increase risk of kidney problems for people already at risk for this problem. If you have kidney disease, discuss with your doctor how Act Olmesartan (Olmesartan-medoxomil) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Act Olmesartan (Olmesartan-medoxomil), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Liver disease: Liver disease may cause olmesartan to be cleared more slowly from the body, resulting in increased side effects. If you have liver disease, discuss with your doctor how Act Olmesartan (Olmesartan-medoxomil) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Act Olmesartan (Olmesartan-medoxomil), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Low blood pressure: Occasionally, a greater-than-expected drop in blood pressure occurs after taking Act Olmesartan (Olmesartan-medoxomil). It is more likely to occur if you are taking additional diuretics (water pills), or aliskiren, have reduced salt intake, are on dialysis, have diarrhea, or are vomiting.

Your doctor may recommend that you have your blood pressure tested more often in these situations. To reduce the risk of dizziness, people with low blood pressure or those just starting to take Act Olmesartan (Olmesartan-medoxomil) should stand or sit up slowly when getting up from a lying down or sitting position. If low blood pressure causes you to faint or feel lightheaded, contact your doctor.

Pregnancy: Babies born to mothers who took olmesartan during pregnancy may develop birth defects. If you become pregnant while taking Act Olmesartan (Olmesartan-medoxomil), stop taking the medication and contact your doctor immediately.

Breast-feeding: It is not known if olmesartan passes into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are taking Act Olmesartan (Olmesartan-medoxomil), it may affect your baby. Do not breast-feed while you are taking Act Olmesartan (Olmesartan-medoxomil).

Children: The safety and effectiveness of Act Olmesartan (Olmesartan-medoxomil) have not been established for children less than 6 years of age.
