Moms BP is high & dr gave her telma 40 telma 20 & cilacar 5 mg for her BP. Her meds are quite spread out morning then 11 then 5 pm & at night. Confusing?

Not knowing what: The other medications are that she is taking prevents me from helping you coordinate her regimen. The Telma should be taken twice daily about 12 hours apart and the Cilacar could be taken at anytime during the day or in combination with her Telma. I think you should ask her health care provider to review her treatment and make her regimen simpler if possible. ...Read more

Micardis (telmisartan) how does it work?

Blocks receptors: Micardis (telmisartan) is an angiotensin receptor blocker or arb. So...Your kidney makes a hormone called renin that provides one step to eventually convert angiotensin into its active form (a2). Then angiotensin2 binds to a receptor to effect a squeeze on blood vessels, increase thirst, adrenal activity and salt retension which all raise blood pressure, so the blocker stops all that and treats hypertension. ...Read more
