CTD O 6.25/20 Tablet
CTD O 6.25/20 Tablet 10’s is a combination of blood pressure-lowering medicine (Olmesartan), and water pills or diuretics (Chlorthalidone) primarily used to treat high blood pressure. Hypertension or high blood pressure is a chronic condition in which the force exerted by the blood against the artery wall is high. As a result, it leads to heart diseases, irregular heartbeat, and other complications.
CTD O 6.25/20 Tablet 10’s is a combination of two medicines namely: Olmesartan and Chlorthalidone. Olmesartan is an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) which works by blocking the hormone angiotensin, thereby relaxing blood vessels. This allows the blood to flow more smoothly and the heart to pump more efficiently. Chlorthalidone is a diuretic or water pills that removes extra water and certain electrolytes from the body. Together it lowers fluid overload, blood pressure and improves blood flow.

Most of these side effects of CTD O 6.25/20 Tablet 10’s do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, reach out to your doctor.
Try not to stop taking this medicine of your own. Let your doctor know about this, as it may cause a rise in blood pressure and can increase the risk of getting heart diseases and stroke. Inform your doctor if you are suffering from any kidney or liver or heart disease or are diabetic. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, please tell your doctor so that the dosage of CTD O 6.25/20 Tablet 10’s can be prescribed accordingly. Do not use CTD O 6.25/20 Tablet 10’s if you are unable to urinate, are dehydrated, have low blood pressure (hypotension), cardiogenic shock (sudden stopping of blood flow to the heart). Please tell your doctor if you are taking any other medicines or are allergic to this medicine. Reducing the amount of table salt (sodium chloride) in your food often relieves the swelling of the body.
