Telmisartan & Hydrochlorothiazide



SKU: b8c09acc83d6 Category:

Telmisartan belongs to a class of medications called angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs). It works by blocking the action of angiotensin II, a hormone that causes blood vessels to narrow and leads to increased blood pressure. By blocking the effects of angiotensin II, Telmisartan helps to relax and widen the blood vessels, thus reducing blood pressure.

Hydrochlorothiazide is a thiazide diuretic that acts by increasing the amount of urine produced by the kidneys. This results in the elimination of excess salt and water from the body, which helps to lower blood pressure. By reducing the volume of fluid in the blood vessels, Hydrochlorothiazide helps to decrease the pressure within the blood vessels.

When combined in a single tablet, Telmisartan and Hydrochlorothiazide work synergistically to provide a more effective reduction in blood pressure than when used alone. This combination medication is typically prescribed for patients whose blood pressure is not adequately controlled by Telmisartan alone.

How to use 

To use Telmisartan and Hydrochlorothiazide, follow these simple steps:

  • Take the medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor or as directed on the label.
  • Swallow the tablet whole with a glass of water. Do not crush, break, or chew the tablet unless instructed otherwise.
  • It can be taken with or without food, but try to take it at the same time each day to establish a routine.
  • If you forget to take a dose, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is close to the time for your next scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule.
  • Keep taking the medication even if you feel well. High blood pressure often has no symptoms, so regular use of the medication is important to keep it under control.
