Do you have high blood pressure? If so, you may have heard about or previously been prescribed Micardis, and now you’re wondering if you can get a Micardis prescription online.

What is Micardis?
How Does Micardis Work?
Angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) like Micardis block the action of angiotensin, an enzyme that constricts blood vessels and causes high blood pressure. Blood pressure is reduced when angiotensin can no longer cause the muscles around blood vessels to shorten and restrict blood flow.
Micardis Dosage and Treatment
The typical starting dosage of Micardis is 40 mg once per day. Maintenance dosages of Micardis generally range from 10-80 mg taken once per day. Always follow your doctor’s dosing instructions carefully to ensure you are getting the proper dosage for your medical condition.
Benefits of Micardis
The primary benefit of Micardis is reduced blood pressure, which can lead to a decreased risk of heart attack, stroke, and kidney problems. Micardis can also lower the risk of heart attack, stroke, or death in certain patients over 55 with risk factors for heart disease.
Side Effects of Micardis
As with any medication, Micardis is generally considered safe, but it does carry a risk of side effects. Potential side effects of Micardis may include:
- Back pain
- Upset stomach
- Stuffy nose
- Sinus pain

Considerations and Precautions of Micardis
While Micardis is safe for most people, it isn’t appropriate for everybody. Always tell your doctor about any medications you take and disclose your full medical history to prevent serious complications.
Micardis may cause serious interactions with certain medications. In some cases, the two medications should not be taken together; in other cases, the dosages may just need to be adjusted. Be sure to tell your doctor about all the medications you take, including supplements, vitamins, and over the counter medications. Certainly, be sure to mention if you take any of the following:
- Digoxin (Lanoxin)
- Diet aids
- Cough and cold medications
- NSAIDs like aspirin, naproxen (Aleve), or ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin)
- Potassium-sparing diuretics like triamterene, spironolactone (Aldactone), amiloride
- Salt substitutes containing potassium
- Potassium supplements
Other Precautions of Micardis
While safe for most people, Micardis isn’t appropriate for everybody. Be sure to share your entire medical history with your doctor to prevent serious complications that could develop as the result of taking Micardis with a certain condition. Especially be sure to mention any of the following:
- Bile duct blockage
- Kidney disease
- Heart disease
- Liver disease
- High blood levels of potassium in the blood (hyperkalemia)
- On a low-salt diet
- Pregnant or breastfeeding
Micardis and Pregnancy or Breastfeeding
Micardis is toxic to a fetus and may cause injury or death to an unborn child. Do not take Micardis if you are pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant. Contact your doctor and stop taking Micardis if you become pregnant.
Micardis may be passed through breastmilk and should not be used by breastfeeding women.
