Telmisartan - Overview
Telmisartan, marketed under the brand name Micardis, is a medication used in the treatment of high blood pressure and to help reduce cardiovascular risk in some patients. People who are in need of a telmisartan prescription and are having trouble getting one can use Push Health to connect with a local medical provider who can prescribe Micardis tablets when appropriate to do so.
What Is Telmisartan Used For?
Telmisartan (Micardis), like irbesartan, losartan and valsartan, belongs to a class of medications known as angiotensin II receptor (type AT1) antagonists. Angiotensin II, formed by angiotensin I, is a compound known as a pressor which causes blood vessel constriction, reabsorption of sodium in the kidneys and aldosterone release. By blocking the activities of angiotensin II, telmisartan helps in reducing elevated blood pressure which is why it is used in the treatment of this condition.
Telmisartan - Dosage and Cost
Micardis tablets are available as telmisartan 20 mg tablets, telmisartan 40 mg tablets and telmisartan 80 mg tablets which are whitish in color and round or oblong in shape. Telmisartan itself is a solid that is white to yellow in color and dissolves poorly in water. In most people, peak telmisartan levels are achieved within 60 minutes of being administered orally - a process slightly delayed by food. Telmisartan circulates mostly bound to plasma proteins and is primarily excreted in the feces. Micardis is moderately affordable, costing approximately 80 cents per telmisartan 80 mg tablet at many pharmacies in the United States. Some insurance plans may cover the costs associated with a telmisartan tablet prescription. Also, Micardis coupons may be available online or through the manufacturer. In most cases, Micardis tablets should be stored at 25° C.

Telmisartan - Side Effects
Telmisartan can cause side effects and they should be discussed with one's pharmacist and medical provider prior to using Micardis. Side effects from telmisartan use include diarrhea, back pain and sinus discomfort. Claudication and skin ulcerations were also reported as side effects with Micardis use. Telmisartan and alcohol should not be used concomitantly. People with a known hypersensitivity to telmisartan, Micardis or other angiotensin II receptor antagonists should not use this medication.
