Teveten HCT Dosage
Generally, the recommended starting Teveten HCT dosage for treating high blood pressure is one 600 mg/12.5 mg tablet taken once a day. Your healthcare provider may increase this dosage up to one 600 mg/25 mg tablet taken once daily, if necessary. This medication does increase urination, so taking your dose in the morning may reduce the need to urinate at night.
An Introduction to Dosing With Teveten HCTThe dose of Teveten® HCT (eprosartan/HCTZ) your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
- Your blood pressure
- How you respond to the medication
- Other medications you are taking
- Other medical conditions you may have.
As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
Teveten HCT Dosage for High Blood PressureTeveten HCT is a combination of two blood pressure medications: eprosartan and hydrochlorothiazide (commonly referred to as HCTZ). If you have already been taking these medications separately and your blood pressure is controlled, you will likely be started on a similar Teveten HCT dosage.
If your blood pressure is not adequately controlled on one of the medications in Teveten HCT, your starting dose of Teveten HCT will be individualized based on your current HCTZ or eprosartan dose, your blood pressure, and whether you have been experiencing side effects from your current medication. Your healthcare provider may then increase your dose, as needed, to control your blood pressure. The amount of HCTZ you are taking should not be increased more often than every two to three weeks.
A typical Teveten HCT dosage is one 600 mg/12.5 mg tablet taken once daily. If needed, the amount may be increased up to one 600 mg/25 mg tablet once daily.
