Telmisartan 40 mg & rampiril 5 mg tablets effects & side effects?
Asked by Sigrid Fiebig 6 months ago.
Telmisartan is an angiotensin II receptor blocker Ramipril is an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor. They both work to decrease the amount or the action of angiotensin. Angiotensin acts to increase a hormone called aldosterone (released by the adrenal glands that sit atop of each kidney). Aldosterone causes the kidneys to keep sodium in the blood (decreased excretion of salt from the body). Hence, as they block angiotensin, less aldosterone is released and so more salt is removed from the body, and where salt goes, water follows, this leads to a drop in blood pressure. If prescribed correctly, they will cause the blood pressure to fall into a normal range. Too much, and you might get a) too low a blood pressure leading to dizziness, nausea etc b) electrolyte imbalance (low sodium, high potassium) c) rash, anaphylactoid reactions (similar to allergic reactions) d) ramipril causes an incessant cough, not seen so much with telmisartan 3) fatigue and really, a whole host of other things. Hope this helps. Remember to take the recommended dosages prescribed hopefully by a qualified physician (specialist in internal medicine) and report any major side effects so that the doctor can act accordingly.

Telmisartan is an angiotensin II receptor antagonist (angiotensin receptor blocker, ARB) used in the management of hypertension. Telmisartan is also used to decrease the chance of heart attack, stroke, or death in people 55 years of age or older who are at high risk for cardiovascular disease. Telmisartan is in a class of medications called angiotensin II receptor antagonists. It works by blocking the action of certain natural substances that tighten the blood vessels, allowing the blood to flow more smoothly and the heart to pump more efficiently. Angiotensin II receptor antagonist: Common adverse drug reactions (ADRs) include: dizziness, headache, and/or hyperkalemia. Infrequent ADRs associated with therapy include: first dose orthostatic hypotension, rash, diarrhea, dyspepsia, abnormal liver function, muscle cramp, myalgia, back pain, insomnia, decreased hemoglobin levels, renal impairment, pharyngitis, and/or nasal congestion. You have to continue anti-hypertensive medications till the rest of your life. Answered by Sharda Langhorn 6 months ago.
Anyway check it now. You probably will have to continue life long. Also try to find the biology. Answered by Cathie Kaas 6 months ago.
what would happen if i took seven 80 mg tablets of telmisartan (altogether this is around 560mg) at once? would it be enough to be fatal or?
Asked by Billi Kieser 6 months ago.
it kind of depends on what your normal dose is (if you normally take telmisartan) and what your blood pressure is. the danger is that your blood pressure can drop too low and that your organs won't get necessary nutrients. if you feel dizzy or lightheaded, that might warrant a trip to the ER. i'm not sure if you did this on purpose, but if so it was a pretty stupid thing to do. there are much better drugs on which to overdose and if you're going to do it, do it right.

Telmisartan Overdose Answered by Antone Revette 6 months ago.
Ah but, if Madeleine got hold of the bottle herself and took all the contents??? That would kill her would it not? Depending on the contents in the bottle. And how do you explain the sedative in the body fluid/hair? *edit* They would have covered it up, in a panic, in fear of it coming out that they sedated all their kids to make them sleep, as all the three children would have been tested and they would have been struck off, and the twins removed. I know the hair would prove sedatives were given at some point only, but without a medical record of some such prescription, back at home in HER GPs records, it would prove the McCanns took it upon themselves to decide to sedate the the child. And even Dr parents arnt allowed to do that. She would need a diagnosis of something like ADD for her GP to precribe a sedative. Sometimes they will for a long journey, but I imagine most GPs would say dont sedate your child for a plane journey, its fun and they should experience the fun of a plane ride.

Can any one tell me how the drug Atonal differs from telmisartan for treating hypertension?
Asked by Maybelle Wirtzfeld 6 months ago.
although both these drugs are using for hypertension they are from diffrent pharmacological category. telmisartan is an Angiotensin II Receptor Blocker while atenolol is a Beta Blocker(Beta1 Selective). Beta blockers are a class of drugs that block beta-adrenergic substances such as adrenaline (epinephrine), a key agent in the "sympathetic" portion of the autonomic (involuntary) nervous system and activation of heart muscle. Angiotensin II receptor blockers are medications that block the action of angiotensin II, permitting the blood vessels to relax and dilate (widen), which lowers the blood pressure. Abbreviated ARB. ARBs are used to control high blood pressure (hypertension), treat heart failure, and prevent kidney failure in people with diabetes or high blood pressure. Since the ARBs have effects similar to those of ACE inhibitors, they are often used when an ACE inhibitor cannot be tolerated by patients By blocking the action of the involuntary nervous system on the heart, beta blockers relieve stress on the heart. They slow the heart beat, lessen the force with which the heart muscle contracts and reduce blood vessel contraction in the heart, brain, and throughout the body.Thanks to their effect on blood vessels, beta blockers can lower the blood pressure and be of value in the treatment of hypertension.

Atonal is for Angina, it is an beta-adrenergic blocking agent. It is also used for migraines, and alcohol withdrawal symptoms. Answered by Carlyn Ambrose 6 months ago.

My Mom is taking telmisartan and she is experiencing severe back pain,coughs all night , bruises easily and doesn't get much sleep. We are worried about her health. She just looks like she feels bad. I want her to go to the doctor but she is scared to go. She is 63 and takes care of of my grandson and has been active but in the last 5 months she just is not the same. Do you think it could be due to the telmisartan she is taking for her blood pressure? She is worried that something is very wrong in her health when all it could be is the medicine she's taking. Any suggestions??? Answered by Irmgard Heydenreich 6 months ago.
Micardis may cause cough, even though it would be rare. It is not known to cause back pain. Coughing may be due to other causes, such as pneumonia or bronchitis. There are plenty of infection going around, especially as a result of kids going back to school. This is the start of the cold season. She may cough so hard that she may sprain her back. Call your mom's doctor NOW or take her to a minor ER to be evaluated. Don't stop Micardis unless specifically told by her doctor. Answered by Macy Briant 6 months ago.
Yes this could be from her meds. She HAS TO CALL HER doc Monday and report this to her doctor. If your mom won't call then you can call and speak with her docs nurse and report all of this and the nurse will call back talk to your mom. Answered by Echo Job 6 months ago.

There are many possibilities if you consider all of them, but since you have metformin there, I would say the common functional group is nitrogen. Unfortunately I can't further limit that answer because in some it is there as an amine, others as a amide, imide, etc. Answered by Callie Paolello 6 months ago.
