Are there any risks in taking Azor?

Azor (amlodipine and olmesartan) is associated with certain risks, which you should discuss with your doctor before taking the medication. If Azor is taken while you are pregnant, it may harm or kill the fetus. If you become pregnant while on the medication, tell your doctor immediately. Azor has been associated with low blood pressure in certain situations. Your first dose may cause dizziness, so be careful not to operate a vehicle until you know how the medicine will affect you. Low blood pressure may also occur if you become sick while taking Azor or during exercise. Activities that make you sweat a lot may make you lose too much salt, leading to a drop in blood pressure and possible fainting. Some people have developed severe, chronic diarrhea months to years after starting olmesartan. Tell your doctor if you have this problem while taking Azor.
