Olmezest 20 Mg (Olmesartan)
MECHANISM OF ACTION
Olmesartan medoxomil is an ester prodrug for olmesartan. It is hydrolysed to olmesartan during absorption from the GI tract. Olmesartan is a selective and competitive angiotensin II Type 1 (AT1) receptor antagonist and hence it blocks the vasocontrictor and aldosterone-secreting effects of angiotensin II.
