Hello,

Lobet containing Labetalol (beta blocker agent) is best molecule recommended for pregnancy associated hypertension to avoid side effects over kidney and teratogenicity of the Olmesar H. I would recommend to continue the same molecule without switching to methyldopa and along with the same if meditations and YOGA are practiced, better results will be oriented.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
