Telma 20 mg is a prescription medication for hypertension (high blood pressure). It can also be prescribed to high-risk people aged 55 years and older to help lower their risk of cardiovascular problems such as heart attack, stroke, or death. Each 20 mg tablet contains the active substance Telmisartan, which belongs to a class of medications known as angiotensin II receptor antagonists, which causes blood vessels to relax, thus lowering blood pressure. Telmisartan treats essential hypertension in adults. Essential means that any other condition does not cause high blood pressure.
If left untreated, hypertension can result in organ damage, leading to heart disease, strokes, blindness, and heart attacks. An individual suffering from hypertension usually shows no symptoms before damage occurs. Therefore, monitoring blood pressure levels regularly is important to verify if it is in the normal range.
Take Telma 20 mg tablets exactly as your doctor has prescribed; he will tell you how much of this medicine to take and when. Do not change your dosing regimen unless advised. Take the tablet daily at the same time each day. You may take the tablet before or after consuming food.
