Taking Telmisartan Safely

General Telmisartan Dosage Information

People taking telmisartan should keep the following considerations in mind:
  • Your telmisartan dosage should be taken by mouth with a glass of water.
  • Telmisartan may be taken with or without food.  


  • Make sure to take telmisartan at the same time each day to maintain even levels of medicine in the blood.
  • For telmisartan to work properly, you have to take it as prescribed. Telmisartan will not work if you take it in a different way than your healthcare provider has prescribed.
  • If you do not take your telmisartan as scheduled, take your next dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for the next scheduled dose, skip the missed one and continue with normal dosing. Do not take a double dose.
  • If you are unsure about anything related to telmisartan or your telmisartan dosage, please talk to your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist. Do not stop taking telmisartan without first discussing it with your healthcare provider.
