One VASORTA-H Tablet daily with or without food. Blood pressure response is dose related.
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.
Hydrochlorothiazide is a thiazide diuretic. It works by blocking salt and fluid reabsorption in the kidneys, causing an increased amount of urine containing salt (diuresis).
