• Telmisartan, the active ingredient of MICARDIS, belongs to a group of drugs called angiotensin-II receptor antagonists.
Angiotensin II is a substance present in the body; By narrowing your blood vessels, it makes it difficult for the blood to pass through these veins and it increases your blood pressure. MICARDIS (telmisartan) relaxes your blood vessels by blocking this effect of angiotensin II and thus decreases your blood pressure.

Your doctor has measured your blood pressure and has found that you are higher than the normal range for your age.

Thus, in some cases heart attacks can result in heart or kidney failure, stroke or blindness. High blood pressure usually does not give a symptom before such damage occurs. Therefore, blood pressure measurements are required to verify whether they are within normal limits.
