    January 4, 2016

    In December 2015 Tchaikapharma High Quality Medicines Inc. was issued a new marketing authorisation by the Bulgarian Drug Agency for the medicinal product Olsart  10 mg, 20 mg, 40 mg film-coated tablets.

    The medicine contains the active substances olmesartan medoxomil and belongs to a group of medicines called angiotensin-II-receptor antagonists. They lower blood pressure by making blood vessels relax and are used to treat high blood pressure (also known as hypertension).

    High blood pressure can damage blood vessels in organs such as the heart, kidneys, brain and eyes. In some cases this can lead to heart attack, heart or renal failure, stroke or blindness. Usually high blood pressure has no symptoms. To avoid possible complications, it is important to regularly measure your blood pressure. High blood pressure can be controlled with medicines like Olsart.

    The medicinal product is subject to medical prescription.

    ATC code: C09CA08
