Micardis HCT Information

Micardis HCT (Generic name: Telmisartan Hydrochlorothiazide) is a prescription medication used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Micardis HCT is a combination of two medications: Telmisartan and Hydrochlorothiazide. Telmisartan belongs to a class of drugs called Angiotensin II Receptor Blockers. It works by blocking the hormone angiotensin thereby relaxing blood vessels, causing them to widen. Hydrochlorothiazide belongs to a family of medications known as diuretics or "water pills" and helps control blood pressure by removing excess salt and water. High blood pressure reduction helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. Take Micardis HCT tablets as prescribed for you.
