Take this medicine in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Swallow it as a whole. Do not chew, crush or break it. Teltab 40mg Tablet may be taken with or without food, but it is better to take it at a fixed time.
Teltab 40mg Tablet is an angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB). It works by blocking the hormone angiotensin thereby relaxing blood vessels, allowing the blood to flow more smoothly and the heart to pump more efficiently.
Teltab is used for the treatment of hypertension (high blood pressure) and to reduce cardiovascular events (i.e. heart attack or stroke) in adults who are at risk because they have a reduced or blocked blood supply to the heart or legs, or have had a stroke or high-risk diabetes.
Weight loss has not been reported as a side effect of Teltab. Talk to your doctor if you experience marked weight loss while taking this medicine as this could be due to some other underlying condition.
