INTRODUCTION

TELVAS CT LS TABLET is a combination of Chlorthalidone and Telmisartan which belongs to the group of medicines called Diuretics and Angiotensin II receptor blockers, respectively. It is used to treat essential hypertension (high blood pressure) in affected individuals when monotherapy with chlorthalidone or telmisartan becomes inadequate to control the condition.

It is also used as initial therapy in patients who are indicated for multiple drug therapy to control high blood pressure.

TELVAS CT LS TABLET is not recommended for use in patients allergic to chlorthalidone, telmisartan, and/or any sulphonamide-derived medicines. It is also not recommended for use in patients suffering from anuria (failure of kidneys to produce urine) and severe liver impairment.

Before taking TELVAS CT LS TABLET, inform your doctor if you have liver problems (such as mild to moderate hepatic impairment), kidney problems (such as decreased renal function, severe renal impairment, nephrogenic diabetes insipidus), and/or heart problems (such as congestive heart failure).

TELVAS CT LS TABLET is not recommended for use during pregnancy and in women planning for pregnancy. It is also not recommended for use in breastfeeding women since it passes through breast milk.

TELVAS CT LS TABLET should be used with caution in children and adolescents (aged 6 to 18 years) and in elders (aged 65 years and above). Consult your doctor before taking this medicine.

The most common side effects of taking TELVAS CT LS TABLET are back pain, sore throat, nausea, abdominal pain, indigestion, diarrhoea, and/or headache. Consult your doctor if any of these symptoms worsen.

USES OF TELVAS CT LS TABLET

  • Treats hypertension to lower blood pressure

HOW TELVAS CT LS TABLET WORKS

TELVAS CT LS TABLET helps to lower blood pressure, where telmisartan works by blocking angiotensin (a hormone responsible for regulating blood pressure and maintaining fluid balance in the body) which leads to relaxation of blood vessels and chlorthalidone works by removing extra water and certain electrolytes from the body which leads to relaxation of blood pressure and improved blood flow thus reducing high blood pressure in affected individuals.
