Olmesartan-Amlodipine-Hydrochlorothiazide is a combination of three different active ingredients used to treat high blood pressure. It is a synthetic imidazole derivative and angiotensin II receptor antagonist with antihypertensive activity. Olmesartan binds to the angiotensin type 1 receptor subtype in vascular smooth muscle and adrenal gland to compete with angiotensin II for binding to the AT1 receptor. It prevents angiotensin II-induced vasoconstriction and interferes with angiotensin II-mediated aldosterone secretion to decrease aldosterone production and prevent aldosterone-stimulated sodium retention and potassium excretion.
Amlodipine is a calcium channel blocker with antihypertensive and antianginal properties. It inhibits the influx of extracellular calcium ions into myocardial and peripheral vascular smooth muscle cells, to prevent the vascular and myocardial contraction. Hydrochlorothiazide is a thiazide diuretic used to treat hypertension and edema. Its metabolite appears to preferentially bind to and accumulate in red blood cells.
