20 is correct starting dose

Detailed Answer:
Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Great to have normal test reports
You may go for a TMT too – Treadmill Exercise ECG

The range for the upper figure (Systolic) is 90 to 140 mm Hg.
The range for the lower figure (Diastolic) is 60 to 90 mm Hg.
Check it frequently – say, once in 3 or 4 days, until controlled… then occasionally / aim for a level of 130/80
     The starting dose of Olmezest (olmesartan) is 20 mg once a day / maximum dose is 40 mg.
Step up the dose, if high – this MUST be done with the concurrence of the treating doctor – he may increase the dose or more often, add a second drug - like Diuretic, Calcium Channel Blocker (CCB) or Beta- Blocker. There are many CLASSES of drugs / There are several drugs in each class / Each drug has a dose range / and will be titrated by the physician

Reduce salt. That is the best known measure to reduce the pressure.
Relax…Relaxation exercises and yoga may also help

Good luck
God bless you
