Telmisartan 40mg should be used once a day to be effective. At a daily dosage of 20 mg, some individuals may already benefit. If the goal blood pressure is not attained with telmisartan, the dose can be raised to a maximum of 80 mg once a day. Alternatively, it may be used with thiazide-type diuretics such as hydrochlorothiazide, which has been proven to have an additive impact on blood pressure reduction when combined with Telmisartan 40mg. When considering a dosage increase, it is important to remember that the maximal antihypertensive impact typically occurs four to eight weeks after therapy begins.
Eighty milligrammes once daily is suggested. It is unknown if dosages less than 80 mg have any effect on cardiovascular morbidity. Close monitoring of blood pressure is suggested while beginning Telmisartan 40mg therapy to reduce cardiovascular morbidity, and if necessary, adjustment of blood pressure-lowering medications may be essential.
