Telma 80 mg is a prescription medicine containing Telmisartan (active ingredient), which belongs to a class of drugs called angiotensin II receptors antagonists or blockers. Angiotensin II is a chemical produced in the body that causes the contraction of muscles surrounding the blood vessels. This causes the narrowing of the blood vessels, increases pressure within the vessels, and can cause high blood pressure (hypertension). Telma 80 mg significantly reduces cardiovascular events, renal problems, and diabetic symptoms in adults due to reduced blood supply to the heart and other parts of the body. Consult a doctor to know whether you have a high risk of these events. Do take this medicine under the supervision of a doctor.
The recommended dose of Telma in adults is 80 mg twice every day. The dose should be adjusted according to the patient's response to the drug under the supervision of your doctor. Report to your doctor after a regular time interval of 3 to 4 weeks. Your blood pressure medicine is available in the form of a tablet, and this makes it easier to be consumed orally with a sufficient amount of water. Swallow this medicine with water. Do not chew it. If you forget to take your medication, do take it as soon as you remember it. In the case of any complications, please contact your doctor immediately. In case you take an extra dose, consult your doctor and do as instructed.
