Frequently asked questions about telmisartan

What is telmisartan?

Telmisartan is a prescription medication used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). This medication helps relax blood vessels and increases the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart. Telmisartan may be prescribed alone or in conjunction with other medications as a treatment for hypertension. In addition to medication, you may be prescribed certain lifestyle changes to help control blood pressure (such as exercise and dietary adjustments).

What is telmisartan used to treat?

Telmisartan is primarily prescribed as a treatment for high blood pressure. This medication may be used alone or in conjunction with other medicines/ therapies to lower blood pressure and prevent further complications such as heart disease, heart attack, and stroke.

High blood pressure is a dangerous – potentially fatal – condition in which the heart is met with too much resistance from blocked or narrowed arteries as it tries to pump blood and oxygen around your body. When not treated, high blood pressure can lead to an array of serious health issues including heart attack, heart failure, stroke, and many more complications. Nearly ½ of Americans have high blood pressure, and heart disease is the leading cause of death of people in the United States.

How does telmisartan work?

Telmisartan belongs to a classification of medications known as angiotensin II receptor antagonists. These drugs work by blocking the action of the angiotensin II hormone – a chemical that constricts blood vessels – on receptors in the heart. When blood vessels become narrowed, blood pressure raises. Telmisartan keeps blood vessels open, which allows the heart to freely pump blood throughout the body. This lowers blood pressure and allows more oxygen to and from the heart.

What are the common side effects of telmisartan?

Telmisartan has been shown to cause some side effects. If these adverse reactions do not go away within a few days or become severe, talk to your health care provider.

Common side effects reported when taking telmisartan include:
- Back pain
- Sinus congestion
- Diarrhea


This is not a complete list of adverse effects – though these are the most common. Seek medical attention right away if you experience symptoms such as swelling, difficulty breathing, rash, weight gain, or hoarseness.

As with all prescription medication, be sure to inform the prescribing doctor about any medical conditions you have been previously diagnosed with and any medication/ supplements you are currently taking before starting treatment with telmisartan. Telmisartan can interact with other forms of medication and substances, causing potentially serious side effects. In addition, let your doctor know if you are currently breastfeeding. You should not breastfeed while taking telmisartan.

What is the typical starting dose of telmisartan?

Telmisartan is commonly prescribed as an oral tablet. For adults, the preliminary dosage of telmisartan starts at 40 mg taken once a day. Depending on the severity of your condition and how well the medication is tolerated, this dosage may be increased up to 80 mg per day.

Do not discontinue or increase your dosage of telmisartan without consulting your doctor first. Take the medication exactly as prescribed, and inform your doctor if you begin to experience any side effects while taking the medication.
