AZOR

AZOR is a prescribed medication used for treating high blood pressure. It contains two medications that are amlodipine and olmesartan and the medication works by slowing down the rate at which calcium moves into your heart and blood vessel walls, and by blocking angiotensin II receptors which can cause blood vessels to constrict. AZOR comes in tablet form and is typically taken once a day. AZOR is a good option for people who are already taking both Norvasc and Benicar.

It is also useful for those who currently take other medications and whose blood pressure is not adequately controlled. AZOR is used for the treatment of high blood pressure. Because the medication has not been adequately studied in children or adolescents, it has only been approved for use in adults (age 18 and older). AZOR is a combination medication that contains olmesartan and amlodipine, and works by relaxing the blood vessels and improving blood flow. There are currently no other AZOR uses which are available.

How to Use AZOR Tablets

  • AZOR comes in the form of a tablet. It is taken by mouth, usually once daily.
  • It does not matter if you take AZOR with or without food. If AZOR bothers your stomach, try taking it with food.
  • Be sure to take AZOR at the same time each day in order to maintain an even level of the medication in your blood.
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.

Cautions before Use AZOR Tablets

  • Sometimes, AZOR can lower blood pressure too much. This is most likely to happen in people who have low sodium levels in the blood or those who are dehydrated.
  • AZOR should not be used by people who have congestive heart failure (CHF). However, amlodipine does not usually seem to have a negative effect on heart failure.
  • AZOR may cause a decrease in kidney function, especially in people who are elderly and are suffering from kidney disease.
  • If you have chest pain or angina caused by a blocked or narrow artery in the heart, AZOR can potentially make this problem worse which could result in a heart attack.

AZOR Tablets Side Effects

The side effects which may arise due to the usage of Azor are as follows:

  • Very low blood pressure
  • Chest pain
  • Irregular heart rhythm
  • Signs of low blood pressure, such as dizziness, lightheadedness, and fainting
  • Severe swelling and water retention, especially in the legs, ankles, or feet
  • Rapid weight gain
  • High potassium levels in the blood
  • Decreased urine production which may be a sign of kidney problems
  • Signs of an allergic reaction, including a rash, hives, itching, unexplained swelling, wheezing, or difficulty breathing.

AZOR Tablets Interactions and Overdose

When medicines such as ACE inhibitors and ARBs are taken together with AZOR, drug interactions may occur. Some of these interactions can increase your risk of developing certain side effects, such as high levels of potassium in your blood or dangerously low blood pressure.

Possible symptoms of an AZOR overdose may include fainting, dizziness, and a fast or slow heart rate. Treatment options for an AZOR overdose may include administering certain medications, or providing supportive medical care.
