Telma H 40/12.5 mg combines two active substances, Telmisartan and hydrochlorothiazide, in one tablet. Both of these substances help to control high blood pressure. Telmisartan belongs to a group of medications known as angiotensin II receptor antagonists. Angiotensin II is a substance produced in your body that causes your blood pressure to narrow, thus increasing your blood pressure.
Telmisartan blocks the action of angiotensin II, which causes your blood vessels to relax; thus, your blood pressure is lowered. Hydrochlorothiazide is categorized under the class of drugs known as thiazide diuretics, which cause your urine output to increase, leading to a significant drop in blood pressure.
High blood pressure, if not treated, can damage blood vessels in several organs, which could sometimes result in kidney failure, heart failure, stroke, or blindness. Telma H is effective in treating high blood pressure in adults whose blood pressure is not controlled enough when Telmisartan is used as a monotherapy.
Always take medicine exactly as your doctor has told you. Check with your doctor if you have any doubts about using the medicine. The recommended dose is one tablet a day. You can take the tablet before or after consuming food. If you have liver insufficiency, your dose shouldn’t exceed 40mg/12.5 mg once a day.
Do not take Telma H if you are allergic to Telmisartan, hydrochlorothiazide or any of the other ingredients of the medicine. You should avoid this medicine if you are more than three months pregnant or have severe liver problems such as cholestasis or biliary obstruction (problems with the drainage of the bile from the gall bladder and liver) or any other liver/kidney, gout, heart trouble, renal insufficiency, diabetes, low blood pressure and raised aldosterone level disorder. Also, avoid taking Telma H if you have diabetes or impaired kidney function and are treated with a blood pressure-lowering medicine containing aliskiren.
The use of Telma H in children and adolescents up to the age of 18 years is not recommended. Tell your doctor if you are taking any other medicines.
The most reported side effect of Telma 40/12.50 mg is dizziness. Other side effects include nausea, diarrhoea, tiredness, changes to your heartbeat, flu-like symptoms, and shortness of breath. Frequent urination is not a side effect of this medicine; it is the purpose of this medicine, as frequent urination helps control your blood pressure.
You may develop other side effects as well, but most are rare. Make sure you read the prescription carefully and tell your doctor if you are concerned about side effects or if they do not resolve within a few days. Adjusting your dose or trying an alternative may be possible in such cases.
