Even if the reaction is unrelated to the medication, your healthcare provider can help diagnose and treat the problem.
An Introduction to Tribenzor Side EffectsAs with any medicine, Tribenzor™ (olmesartan medoxomil/amlodipine/hydrochlorothiazide) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who takes the medication will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Tribenzor. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list with you.)
