Something to share with my blog readers.

Pronounced: MY-car-diss
Generic name: Telmisartan

"Micardis controls high blood pressure. It works by blocking the effects of a hormone called angiotensin II. Unopposed, this substance tends to constrict the blood vessels while promoting retention of salt and water--actions that tend to raise blood pressure. Micardis prevents these effects and thus keeps blood pressure lower. It can be prescribed alone or with other high blood pressure medications, such as diuretics that help rid the body of excess water."

"You can take Micardis with or without food. To avoid forgetting a dose, make a habit of taking it at the same time each day."

"--If you miss a dose..." (err.. I often miss it on weekend, tertinggal dalam drawer kat office)

"Take it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the one you missed and go back to your regular schedule."(in my case, on Monday lor....).

"Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in intensity, inform your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can determine if it is safe for you to continue taking Micardis."

  • "More common side effects may include:
    Back pain, diarrhea, respiratory tract infection, sinus inflammation"
