Drug Info for olmesartan medoxomil-hctz

Hydrochlorothiazide is used alone or in combination with other medications to treat high blood pressure. Hydrochlorothiazide is used to treat edema (fluid retention; excess fluid held in body tissues) caused by various medical problems, including heart, kidney, and liver disease and to treat edema caused by using certain medications including estrogen and corticosteroids. Hydrochlorothiazide is in a class of medications called diuretics ('water pills'). It works by causing the kidneys to get rid of unneeded water and salt from the body into the urine. High blood pressure is a common condition and when not treated, can cause damage to the brain, heart, blood vessels, kidneys and other parts of the body. Damage to these organs may cause heart disease, a heart attack, heart failure, stroke, kidney failure, loss of vision, and other problems. In addition to taking medication, making lifestyle changes will also help to control your blood pressure. These changes include eating a diet that is low in fat and salt, maintaining a healthy weight, exercising at least 30 minutes most days, not smoking, and using alcohol in moderation.

Benicar HCT is a medication used to treat high blood pressure. Benicar HCT contains two components: olmesartan (an angiotensin receptor blocker) and hydrochlorothiazide (a diuretic). Benicar HCT is the brand name for the drug combination olmesartan medoxomil and hydrochlorothiazide. Both components of Benicar HCT have been available for years. In the treatment of high blood pressure, Benicar HCT use is fairly common.
