Manufacturer of Telmisartan Tablets

Cipla Ltd.
Website: cipla.com

Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient

The active pharmaceutical ingredient contained in Cresar tablets is Telmisartan. It blocks angiotensin II receptors in the body.

Uses of Telmisartan Tablets

Telmisartan (Cresar tablets) is prescribed to treat hypertension (high blood pressure). It can be used alone, or in combination with other antihypertensive drugs. It also helps in cardiovascular risk reduction in patients above 55 years of age, who are unable to take ACE inhibitors, and who are at a major risk of cardiovascular events such as MI (myocardial infraction), stroke and death.

Telmisartan (Cresar Tablets) – Dosage

Initial dose: 40 mg orally once a day with or without food (prescribed usually by physician in the beginning). Maintain adequate intravascular volume (hydration).
Maintenance dose: 20 mg to 80 mg orally once a day.
Dose for cardiovascular risk reduction in patients unable to take ACE inhibitors: 80 mg orally once a day with or without food.
In cardiovascular risk reduction patients taking Telmisartan, blood pressure should be regularly monitored, and dose adjustments are recommended. Dose adjustments must be considered for patients suffering from renal insufficiency and liver dysfunctions. Dose adjustments by physician must be considered for patients on Telmisartan undergoing renal dialysis.

Mechanism of Action

Telmisartan is an angiotensin II receptor blocker that shows high affinity for the angiotensin II receptor type 1 (AT1), with a much higher affinity for AT1 than AT2. In addition to blocking the RAs, Telmisartan also acts as a selective modulator of peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPAR-?), which is a regulator of insulin and glucose metabolism. Telmisartan's double action protects against the vascular and renal damage, caused by diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Missed Dosage Instructions for Telmisartan Tablets

Take the missed dose of Cresar Tablets as soon as you remember. Skip the missed dose, if it is almost time for your next scheduled dose. Do not take extra medicine to make up the missed dose.
