Product Description

Olmecip 40

OLMECIP 40MG contains Olmesartan which belongs to a group of medicines called angiotensin-II receptor antagonists. It is used to treat blood pressure by relaxing the blood vessels. High blood pressure is a condition in which the blood vessels have persistently raised pressure. It can increase the risk of heart, brain, kidney and other diseases. When your heart pumps into the narrowed arteries blood pressure gets increased and it is determined by both, the amount of blood your heart pumps and the amount of resistance to blood flow in your arteries.
