HOW OLMETIME-H TABLET WORKS

Olmetime-H 40 Tablet is a combination of two medicines: Hydrochlorothiazide and olmesartan which lower blood pressure effectively. Hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic that removes extra water and certain electrolytes from the body. Over time it also relaxes blood vessels and improves blood flow.

This allows the blood to flow more smoothly and the heart to pump more efficiently.
