Olvance CT does not cause constipation and it is not related to the either of the drugs (Olmesartan/Chlorthalidone) in the combination.Chlorthalidone is a water pill(it causes excess of urination).This might be one of the reasons for dehydration and in-turn constipation.Your BP is well under control.If this is bothering (casusing alteration in the bowel habits) you may consult your doctor for change of medication since goal BP has to be taken care at the same time.Hope this helps.Take care.
