Product Description:

General information
Micardis belongs to a class of medications known as angiotensin II receptor antagonists. This medication reduce blood pressure by blocking the actions of a chemical (angiotensin II) that causes blood vessels to constrict or tighten. It is used to treat mild to moderate high blood pressure. High blood pressure reduction helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. This medication may also be used to treat congestive heart failure and to help protect the kidneys from damage due to diabetes.
Directions
Take Micardis exactly as prescribed by your doctor. The recommended adult dose is 80 mg once a day at the same time each day, with or without food. People with reduced liver function are usually given 40 mg once daily to start. The recommended starting dosage for most people with high blood pressure (hypertension) is 40 mg once a day. The recommended dosage for the purpose of reducing the risk of cardiovascular problems (such as heart attacks, strokes, and related deaths) in people at high risk for such problems is 80 mg daily. Your dosage should be taken by mouth with a glass of water, with or without food. Use it at the same time each day.
