Telmisartan is used alone or in conjunction with other antihypertensive agents. Angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) converts Angiotensin I to Angiotensin II. Angiotensin II is an octapeptide in plasma, which is obtained by a precursor plasma alpha globulin and is involved in electrolyte, blood volume and pressure homeostasis. The amount of rennin in plasma controls the Angiotensin II generation. Angiotensin II has very short half-life and it is acted upon by aminopeptidase to form Angiotensin III, which stimulates aldosterone secretion. Micardis binds to the active site of Angiostenin II and prevents it from exerting any action. You can buy Micardis online without any hassles from our online pharmacy.
The important action of Angiotensin II is vasoconstriction produced by increasing adrenaline or noradrenaline release and by increasing sympathetic outflow. Angiotensin II causes vasoconstriction and it prevents the secretion of aldosterone. Aldosterone causes an increase in blood volume. Micardis acts as an Angiotensin II receptor antagonist and decreases blood volume and causes vasodilation, which result in a fall in blood pressure.
The common side effects reported with Telmisartan during clinical trials and in post marketing are impotence, increased sweating, allergy, fever, malaise, palpitation, edema, tachycardia, insomnia, somnolence, vertigo, flatulence, constipation, gastritis, dry mouth, anxiety, depression, infection, dermatitis, rash, asthma, bronchitis and abnormal vision.
Telmisartan can be combined with diuretics to control blood pressure more effectively. When Micardis is combined with digoxin, there should be continuous monitoring of plasma levels and dosage needs to be adjusted accordingly. Pregnant women should not take Micardis as it can cause fetal death. Telmisartan should be administered with caution if you are suffering from renal function impairment. It is advised to avoid potassium supplements as Micardis can cause hyperkalemia. Telmisartan should not be administered to nursing mothers and pediatric patients. Avoid activities that require alertness as Telmisartan can cause dizziness. It may take 4 weeks to get appropriate blood pressure response after starting the treatment.
The recommended starting dosage of Micardis is 40mg once daily, administered with or without food. The dose can be slowly increased to a maximum of 80mg/day. The effectiveness of the treatment can be added by incluing an hydrochlorthiazide diruetic in the treatment.
