Uses
Telma (Telmisartan) is primarily used to lower blood pressure in patients affected by hypertension. However, another use for this drug is being used to lower the risk of stroke or heart attack in patients considered to be at risk of this (due to type 2 diabetes, heart disease or other medical conditions). This medicine is a type of angiotensin II receptor antagonist, and its mode of action involves blocking the action of the hormone which is responsible for constricting the blood vessels. As a result of this, the blood vessels widen, and blood pressure is reduced.

Dosage and Administration
Patients must go and see their doctor for a medical assessment before taking Telma (Telmisartan) tablets. The prescribing doctor will decide whether or not this drug is suitable, and if it is deemed suitable, the correct dosage will be prescribed. Adults undergoing treatment with this drug to lower high blood pressure are often prescribed 40mg per day. This may be adjusted if the doctor believes it to be necessary, and a dosage of 20mg to 80mg may be prescribed. If this drug is being taken to reduce the risk of cardiovascular complications, it is possible that a dosage of 80mg will be prescribed.

Side effects
If you are taking Telma (Telmisartan), it is recommended that you discuss the risks of side effects with the prescribing doctor before commencing treatment. Possible side effects include:

  • Sinus pain
  • Dry mouth
  • Nasal congestion
  • Sweating more than usual
  • Pain in the back or joints

You must seek immediate medical attention if any serious side effects occur. Examples of this include anaemia, thrombocytopenia, tachycardia, problems affecting the liver and high potassium. It is very important to note that the list of reactions given here is not a complete list of all possible side effects.

Precautions
Never use this drug during pregnancy, as it can cause serious (and in some cases, fatal) harm to the unborn child.

Taking this drug can increase potassium levels. It is recommended that you do not use any potassium supplements unless your doctor has told you that it is safe to do so.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Telma (Telmisartan) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.

This medication may not be safe for all patients. Before you begin using it always disclose the following to your doctor:

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • If you suffer from any allergies.
