How are you? Azor (amlodipine and olmesartan) is usually indicated for treatment of high blood pressure. Moderate food interaction with Azor may be seen with high dietary intake of potassium, especially salt substitutes. The consumption of grapefruit juice may also slightly increase plasma concentrations of amlodipine. However, data have been conflicting and it is recommended that side effects of amlodipine excess such as headache, hypotension, tachycardia, and edema is monitored regularly.
