Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

For BP control, take tablet Amlodipine 5 mg along with your current medicine. For sleep problem, replace with tablet Lorazepam 1 mg at night. Avoid excessive caffiene, tea, etc., before sleep. Make environment for sleep.

Please note: Tablet Olmesartan and all other medicines of this group are contraindicated during pregnancy. May cause serious side-effects to fetus and even fetus loss.


Preventive measures:

Avoid noises, lose weight if overweight, reduce salt intake.
