What is Telmisartan (Generic Micardis) and what are its uses ?

How does Telmisartan (Generic Micardis) Works (Mechanism) ?

Micardis belongs to the group of drugs known as angiotensin II receptor antagonist. Micardis exerts its mechanism of action by inhibiting the action of Angiotensin II.

Angiotensin II is a hormone. Angiotensin II causes the peripheral blood vessels to narrow and also stimulates the production of another hormone aldosterone. Aldosterone causes salt and water retention in the kidneys, which increases the volume of fluid in the blood.

Micardis blocks the receptors that Angiotensin II acts and thereby prevents its actions. The main result of this is that the peripheral blood vessels are allowed to widen, which means that there is more space and less resistance in these blood vessels. This is the main mechanism by which the pressure in the blood vessels is lowered.

Blocking the actions of Angiotensin II also reduces the action of aldosterone on the kidneys. This results in an increase in the amount of fluid removed from the blood by the kidneys. This decreases the amount of fluid in the blood vessels, which also lessens the resistance and pressure in the blood vessels.

The combined overall effect results in lowering of blood pressure.
