Powerful anti-hypertensive combination launched

  • Comment
A new formulation of the anti-hypertension drug telmisartan/hydrochlorothiazide (MicardisPlus) has been launched in the UK.

Boehringer Ingelheim has developed a fixed dose combination of 80mg telmisartan and 25mg hydrochlorothiazide for treating hypertension in patients whose blood pressure is not controlled by less powerful combinations of the product or either ingredient separately.

The new combination was licensed for European Union use in March.
