INTRODUCTION

ERITEL H 40MG is a combination of Hydrochlorothiazide and Telmisartan which belongs to the group of medicines called Thiazide diuretics and Angiotensin-receptor blockers respectively. ERITEL H 40MG is used to control high blood pressure among adults whose blood pressure could not be adequately controlled by single agents. High blood pressure (also known as Hypertension) is a medical condition in which the force of the blood exerted against the walls of the artery remains very high, and as a result it may lead to severe damage to the blood vessels of several organs, thus causing heart attack, heart or kidney failure, stroke, or even blindness.

Telmisartan is an Angiotensin-receptor blocker which effectively reduces blood pressure by blocking the actions of Angiotensin – II (a substance that causes narrowing of blood vessels and increase in blood pressure) and hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic which acts by increasing urine output, thus leading to a decrease in blood pressure. During the course of therapy, your doctor might regularly monitor your blood pressure, kidney function and electrolytes balance at regular intervals to avoid any untoward side effects.

Take this medicine with or without food. Before taking ERITEL H 40MG, inform your doctor. if you have any problems related to kidney, liver, lungs, or heart and if you have other conditions such as diabetes, gout, hyperaldosteronism, and skin cancer.

ERITEL H 40MG is not recommended for use in children and adolescents less than 18 years of age.  ERITEL H 40MG should not be used in pregnant women (especially after 3 months of gestation), as it may cause potential harm to the unborn baby.
