Overview of Telmisartan Tablets:
VASORTA Tablets contains Telmisartan which gives long term anti-hypertensive efficacy and is well tolerated in broad spectrum of hypertensive patients, including the elderly and those with coexisting type II diabetes, metabolic syndrome and/or renal impairment

Telmisartan is an angiotensin II antagonist acting on the AT1 receptor subtype.

VASORTA Tablets can be used in the treatment of following conditions:

  • Hypertension.
  • Diabetic nephropathy in hypertensive patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus, as well as the treatment of congestive heart failure (only in patients who cannot tolerate ACE inhibitors).

One VASORTA Tablet once daily (with/without food) or as directed by Physician.
No dosage adjustment is necessary in elderly patients or in renal impairment and haemodialysis.

Telmisartan blocks the vasoconstrictor and aldosterone-secreting effects of angiotensin II by selectively blocking the binding of angiotensin II to the AT1 receptor in many tissues, such as vascular smooth muscle and the adrenal gland.
