Telma 80 mg is a medicine mainly used for the treatment of hypertension or high blood pressure. This medicine contains the active ingredient Telmisartan, which is an angiotensin II receptor antagonist that prevents the blood vessels from narrowing which improves blood flow and lowers blood pressure. It is prescribed sometimes in combination with other blood pressure medicines. Telmisartan is also prescribed to lower the risk of stroke and heart attack, or death from heart disease in people who are at least 55 years and with high-risk factors for serious heart troubles.
Limit or completely avoid alcohol consumption while taking Telma 80 mg. This medicine can cause dizziness. To limit dizziness, do not get up from a lying or sitting position suddenly. Telmisartan may increase your potassium levels. Hence, avoid potassium supplements or salt substitutes that contain potassium while taking this medicine. Many other drugs can interact with Telma 80 mg. Let your doctor know in advance if you use any other drugs or related products (OTC vitamin pills or other medicines, or herbal products), especially the following ones: other medicines that lower blood pressure, digoxin, aspirin or NSAIDs (ibuprofen, naproxen, or others), heart disease medication, a potassium supplement such as K-Dur, Klor-Con, salt substitutes that contain potassium, or a diuretic. These are not the only drugs that can interact with this anti-hypertensive drug. There may be others. Never start a new medication without proper medical advice.
Some common side effects associated with the use of Telma 80 mg are dizziness, lightheadedness, swelling in ankles or feet, or flushing.
