Dosage information

18 YEARS OLD AND ABOVE
The recommended dose is 40 mg once daily. Some patients may already benefit at a daily dose of 20 mg. In cases where the target blood pressure is not achieved, telmisartan dose can be increased to a maximum of 80 mg once daily. Alternatively, telmisartan may be used in combination with thiazide type diuretics such as hydrochlorothiazide, which has been shown to have an additive blood pressure lowering effect with telmisartan. When considering raising the dose, it must be borne in mind that the maximum antihypertensive effect is generally attained four-eight weeks after the start of treatment. Telmisartan may be taken with or without food.

0 TO 18 YEARS OLD
Not recommended due to limited data on safety and efficacy.
