Hello, thanks for the query. The tablet mentioned (both brands) is used to treat high blood pressure. Doctor must have prescribed it for high bp. So please do take it. It does not have any interaction with levothyroxine. Please remember thyroxine tablet needs to be taken on empty stomach early morning and nothing to be taken fro over 1 hour. Thanks.

Hello, Olsertain H20 and olsertain 40 which tablet is strong dose or efficient to reduce HBP?
Please suggest.
No medicines needed for BP please read about the side effects of these medicines and then decide Hypertension is both lifestyle and dietary disease which requires only a lifestyle solution and dietary changes and no medicine is needed provided the triggers are identified and treated BP medicines are toxic and cause complications never explained by your Dr. and you do not ask or read about it. .Reversible causes of BP such as Mineral, Vitamin deficiency, Thyroid disease ,Stress ,Sleep ,lifestyle issues need to be treated before even starting medication. 1)Detailed history including dietary & lifestyle habits needed in addition to medical, occupational ,& environment history 2) Comprehensive lab testing needed which should have tests for inflammation and mineral deficiency. Do tests reflecting not focusing on heart alone. 3) Get detailed dietary and lifestyle habits advice based on the basis of detailed history and lab tests results. If you do not follow these 3 steps you will be left with no other option other than life long medications and Dr. shopping Send feedback with name and contact number after taking consult. Treat your personal trigger for high BP to fix the root cause and get off BP medications for ever provided you do not have any structural heart disease proved by normal cardiac tests like Echo, and TMT You do not need lifelong medications for BP. You never need medicines for high BP provided the root cause is found and treated Wake up and Get educated and never medicated for any Lifestyle and dietary disease like high BP.

Hi, you can stop olmesar and monitor bp for 6 weeks. If does not rise then continue without bp medicines. I think you donot need bp medicines if doing regular walking. But please monitor your bp for at least 6 weeks after stopping medicines.

Dear sir, My grandma have been blood pressure and diabetes since 10 years and her usual treatment or medication are going on. When her legs are swelled extremely ,she reached to a cardiologist. The doctor had written olmesar h 20 (Hydrochlorothiazide (12.5 mg, Olmesartan (20 mg)) tablet for it. Is it safe to give this medicine to a diabetic patient?

Yes it is safe to use these medicines in diabetic. But what is reason for swelling. If not investigated then get her tests done. With these medicines and in elderly keep checking her electrolytes periodically.

The reason that your father is having these medications is that he has some cardiac condition. Well there can be side effects to any medication, but be assured that if he discontinues these medications without consulting a doctor he, it might pose a serious health risk.

Hello, Thanks for the query. BP 160/80 mm Hg is high, ideally it should be around 120 to 130/ 70 to 80 mm Hg. You may have to increase the dose of Olmesartan to 40 mg a day. With HbA1c% 6% diabetes seems to be well controlled. Thanks

Hello, Thanks for the query. I have seen the details given. I learn that you have Hypothyroidism and hypertension. But there is absolutely no mention of necessary details like T4, T3 & TSH levels, BP readings, dosage of Levothyroxine being taken and also dosage of other drugs taken. Without any of these details, it is difficult to give any opinion. In pregnancy first choice drug for hypertension is Methyledopa, then Labetolo and Nifedipine. Olmesartan is contraindicated. Plus if you want to conceive, then TSH should be maintained < 2.5 mU/L. If you have any questions please do come back. Thanks.
