ACTELSAR HCT 40/12.5mg x 28

What is Actelsar HCT?

Actelsar HCT is a medication that is administered in adults who have high blood pressure. This medication contains two active substances, Telmisartan and hydrochlorothiazide, and is often prescribed when Telmisartan alone is not effective in the treatment of hypertension (high blood pressure).

What is Actelsar HCT used for?

Actelsar HCT is used to treat hypertension. It is used to lower the blood pressure, and reduce the risks associated with high blood pressure such as stroke.

How does Actelsar HCT work?

Actelsar HCT is composed of two active ingredients, Telmisartan and Hydrochlorothiazide.

Telmisartan belongs to a group of medications known as Angiotensin-II-receptor antagonists. They work by inhibiting the action of the hormone called Angiotensin II which narrows the blood vessels. Telmisartan allows the blood vessels to widen.

Hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic. Diuretics help to reduce the amount of fluid in the blood and reduce the blood pressure by increasing urine output.
