Telmisartan and Hydrochlorothiazide

Telmisartan/hydrochlorothiazide (Micardis HCT®) is a prescription drug used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) in adults. This medication helps lower both diastolic and systolic blood pressure by causing the blood vessels to relax and increasing the amount of water removed from the blood.
 
Available in the form of a tablet, telmisartan/hydrochlorothiazide comes in several different strengths and is generally taken once a day. Your specific dosage will depend on a number of factors, such as other medical conditions you have and how you respond to the medication.
