Tribenzor Patient Information Including Side Effects

Brand Names: Tribenzor

Generic Name: amlodipine, hydrochlorothiazide, and olmesartan (Pronunciation: am LOE di peen, HYE droe KLOR oh THYE a zide, and OL me SAR tan)

What is amlodipine, hydrochlorothiazide, and olmesartan (Tribenzor)?

Amlodipine is a calcium channel blocker. Amlodipine relaxes (widens) blood vessels and improves blood flow.

Hydrochlorothiazide is a thiazide diuretic (water pill) that helps prevent your body from absorbing too much salt, which can cause fluid retention.

Olmesartan is an angiotensin II receptor antagonist. Olmesartan keeps blood vessels from narrowing, which lowers blood pressure and improves blood flow.

Amlodipine, hydrochlorothiazide, and olmesartan is a combination medicine used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). This medication is usually given after others have been tried without successful treatment of hypertension.
