Blood Pressure Home > Tribenzor Overdose

If you take too much Tribenzor (olmesartan medoxomil/amlodipine/hydrochlorothiazide), symptoms could include low blood pressure, dizziness, and a low heart rate. Treatment options may include administering activated charcoal or pumping the stomach to help reduce the amount of the medication that is absorbed into the bloodstream. Supportive care will also be used to treat any symptoms that occur.

Can You Take Too Much Tribenzor?

Tribenzor™ (olmesartan medoxomil/amlodipine/hydrochlorothiazide) is a combination medication used to treat high blood pressure, known medically as hypertension. As with most medications, it is possible to take too much Tribenzor.
 
The specific effects of a Tribenzor overdose can vary depending on a number of factors, including the Tribenzor dosage and whether it was taken with any other medications or substances.
 
Seek immediate medical attention if you or someone else may have intentionally or accidentally taken a Tribenzor overdose.
