Frequently asked questions about Telsar Products

Frequently asked questions about Telmisartan

Q. Should Telsar be taken in the morning or at night?
Telsar is generally recommended to be taken once daily, either in the morning or in the evening. Consider taking it at the same time each day as it will help you to remember taking it.
Q. How long does it take for Telsar to work?
You may see an improvement within a few days. But, the maximum benefit can be seen within 4-8 weeks of starting treatment.
Q. My blood pressure is now controlled with Telsar. Can I stop taking it now?
No, do not stop taking Telsar without consulting your doctor even if your blood pressure is controlled. Stopping it suddenly may increase your blood pressure which could be detrimental for you. Telsar does not cure high blood pressure but controls it. So, you may have to take the medicine life long. Talk to your doctor if you have any concerns.
Q. If I have some kidney problem, can I take Telsar? Can it further deteriorate my kidney function?
You can take Telsar if it has been advised by your doctor. Your doctor may ask you to get regular tests done (potassium and creatinine levels) in order to monitor your kidney function. Telsar may cause worsening of kidney function, therefore you should contact your doctor in case you notice swelling in your feet, ankles, or hands or unexplained weight gain.
Q. I am overweight and doctor has prescribed me Telsar for blood pressure control. I am bothered that Telsar can increase my weight. Is it true?
No, do not worry since Telsar is not known to cause weight gain. In fact in animal studies Telsar has been found to decrease fat tissue.
Q. Does Telsar affect blood glucose levels in diabetics?
Telsar may lower blood glucose levels in patients of diabetes. Therefore, a regular check on blood glucose levels is essential. Talk to your doctor if you are a diabetic because the dose of insulin or antidiabetic medicines may need adjustment.
Q. Can the use of Telsar cause hyperkalemia (increased potassium level in blood)?
Yes, Telsar can cause hyperkalemia (increased potassium level in blood). A regular monitoring of blood potassium levels may be advised by your doctor while taking this medicine.
Q. Does Telsar work by causing excessive urination?
No, Telsar does not cause excessive urination and does not belong to diuretic class of medicines. Telsar works by relaxing the blood vessels by blocking the effect of a substance known as angiotensin II. Angiotensin II causes blood vessels to narrow which causes an increase in blood pressure.
Q. Do I need to follow any precautions if I take ibuprofen and Telsar together?
If you are taking ibuprofen and Telsar together, you should continuously keep a check on your blood pressure and kidney function. Telsar may enhance the side effects of ibuprofen which may further cause water retention, especially in patients taking Telsar for heart failure. Ibuprofen may interfere with working of Telsar and decrease its efficiency at lowering blood pressure.
