Micardis FAQs

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.

What Are the Associated Dosages and Treatments for Micardis?

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.

What Are the 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.

What Are the Side Effects of Micardis?

What Are the Interactions for Micardis?

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:

  • Lithium
  • Aliskiren
  • Digoxin (Lanoxin)
  • Ramipril
  • Diet aids
  • Cough and cold medications
  • NSAIDs like aspirin, naproxen (Aleve), or ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin)

  • Salt substitutes containing potassium
  • Potassium supplements

What Are 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:

  • Diabetes
  • Bile duct blockage
  • Kidney disease
  • Heart disease

What Should You Know About 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.

Can You Buy Micardis Online?

You need to be careful about buying prescription medication online. There are websites that claim they can send you prescription medication from other countries. However, federal law requires everybody to speak to a doctor before getting any prescription medication, so websites that skip this step are skirting the law.

Fortunately, there is a legal way to buy Micardis online. With PlushCare, you can have a video or phone appointment with a licensed doctor. If the doctor decides that Micardis is appropriate for you, they can electronically send the prescription to your local pharmacy.
