Tazloc 40 MG Description

Tazloc 40 tablet is an antihypertensive medicine containing telmisartan as its active ingredient. This medicine lowers the raised blood pressure levels. Thus, it is used to treat high blood pressure and also helps to reduce other heart problems.

Telmikind 40, Telvas 40, Telista 40 and Eritel 40 are some other medicines which contain telmisartan as their main ingredient. Telmisartan is an angiotensin II receptor (ARB) blocker. It works by preventing the body from producing a substance that causes blood vessels to constrict. Telmisartan relaxes the blood vessels as a result. This lowers blood pressure while increasing blood and oxygen supply to the heart.

While taking this medicine, you should be cautious of your diet and should also exercise regularly. Tazloc 40 should be taken as directed by the doctor and in doses and duration as advised. It can be taken with or without food. Do not stop taking this medicine unless asked to do so by your doctor. Before using the Tazloc 40 tablet, inform the doctor about your detailed medical history.
