Mylan Launches Generic Micardis
Telmisartan is an angiotensin II receptor blocker indicated for the treatment of hypertension and cardiovascular risk reduction in patients ≥55 years of age who are unable to take ACE inhibitors. Telmisartan blocks the vasoconstrictor and aldosterone-secreting effects of angiotensin II by selectively blocking the binding of angiotensin II to the AT1 receptor in many tissues, such as vascular smooth muscle and the adrenal gland.
Telmisartan Tablets are available in 20mg, 40mg, and 80mg strengths.
