Micardis 40mg Tablets 28’s contains Telmisartan. It treats high blood pressure because it is an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB). It works by blocking the hormone angiotensin thereby relaxing blood vessels. Also, it allows the blood to flow more smoothly and the heart to pump more efficiently.
Micardis belongs to a class of medicines known as angiotensin II receptor antagonists. Angiotensin II is a substance produced in your body which causes your blood vessels to narrow, thus increasing your blood pressure.
- Micardis blocks the effect of angiotensin II so that the blood vessels relax, and your blood pressure is lowered.
