Dosage of Telz in details

The dose of a drug and dosage of the drug are two different terminologies. Dose is defined as the quantity or amount of medicine given by the doctor or taken by the patient at a given period. Dosage is the regimen prescribed by the doctor about how many days and how many times per day the drug is to be taken in specified dose by the patient. The dose is expressed in mg for tablets or gm, micro gm sometimes, ml for syrups or drops for kids syrups. The dose is not fixed for a drug for all conditions, and it changes according to the condition or a disease. It also changes on the age of the patient.

Telz Dosage

Generic name: Telz 20mg

Dosage form: tablet

The information at is not a substitute for medical advice. Always consult your doctor or pharmacist.

2.1  Hypertension

Dosage must be individualized. The usual starting dose of Telz tablets is 40 mg once a day. Blood pressure response is dose-related over the range of 20 to 80 mg.

Most of the antihypertensive effect is apparent within 2 weeks and maximal reduction is generally attained after 4 weeks. When additional blood pressure reduction beyond that achieved with 80 mg Telz is required, a diuretic may be added.

No initial dosage adjustment is necessary for elderly patients or patients with renal impairment, including those on hemodialysis. Patients on dialysis may develop orthostatic hypotension; their blood pressure should be closely monitored.

Telz tablets may be administered with other antihypertensive agents.

Telz tablets may be administered with or without food.

2.2  Cardiovascular Risk Reduction

The recommended dose of Telz tablets is 80 mg once a day and can be administered with or without food. It is not known whether doses lower than 80 mg of Telz are effective in reducing the risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.

When initiating Telz therapy for cardiovascular risk reduction, monitoring of blood pressure is recommended, and if appropriate, adjustment of medications that lower blood pressure may be necessary.

What other drugs will affect Telz?

Tell your doctor about all medicines you use, and those you start or stop using during your treatment with Telz, especially:

This list is not complete. Other drugs may interact with Telz, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal products. Not all possible interactions are listed in this medication guide.

Telz interactions

Interactions are the effects that happen when the drug is taken along with the food or when taken with other medications. Suppose if you are taking a drug Telz, it may have interactions with specific foods and specific medications. It will not interact with all foods and medications. The interactions vary from drug to drug. You need to be aware of interactions of the medicine you take. Most medications may interact with alcohol, tobacco, so be cautious.

Interaction Studies have only been Performed in Adults: As with other medicinal products acting on the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system, Telz may provoke hyperkalemia. The risk may increase in case of treatment combination with other medicinal products that may also provoke hyperkalemia [salt substitutes containing potassium, potassium-sparing diuretics, ACE inhibitors, angiotensin II receptor antagonists, NSAIDs (including selective COX-2 inhibitors), heparin, immunosuppressives (cyclosporin or tacrolimus) and trimethoprim].

The occurrence of hyperkalemia depends on associated risk factors. The risk is increased in case of the previously mentioned treatment combinations. The risk is particularly high in combination with potassium sparing-diuretics and when combined with salt substitutes containing potassium. A combination with ACE inhibitors or NSAIDs, for example, presents a lesser risk provided that precautions for use are strictly followed.

Concomitant Use Not Recommended: Potassium-Sparing Diuretics or Potassium Supplements: Angiotensin II receptor antagonists eg, Telz, attenuate diuretic induced potassium loss. Potassium-sparing diuretics eg, spironolactone, eplerenone, triamterene or amiloride, potassium supplements or potassium-containing salt substitutes may lead to a significant increase in serum potassium. If concomitant use is indicated because of documented hypokalemia, they should be used with caution and with frequent monitoring of serum potassium.

Lithium: Reversible increases in serum lithium concentrations and toxicity have been reported during concomitant administration of lithium with ACE inhibitors and with angiotensin II receptor antagonists, including Telz. If use of the combination proves necessary, careful monitoring of serum lithium levels is recommended.

Concomitant Use Requiring Caution: Nonteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Medicinal Products: NSAIDs (ie, acetylsalicylic acid at anti-inflammatory dosage regimens, COX-2 inhibitors and non-selective NSAIDs) may reduce the antihypertensive effect of angiotensin II receptor antagonists.

In some patients with compromised renal function (eg, dehydrated patients or elderly patients with compromised renal function), the co-administration of angiotensin II receptor antagonists and agents that inhibit cyclo-oxygenase may result in further deterioration of renal function, including possible acute renal failure, which is usually reversible. Therefore, the combination should be administered with caution, especially in the elderly. Patients should be adequately hydrated and consideration should be given to monitoring of renal function after initiation of concomitant therapy and periodically thereafter.

In 1 study the co-administration of Telz and ramipril led to an increase of up to 2.5-fold in the AUC0-24 and Cmax of ramipril and ramiprilat. The clinical relevance of this observation is not known.

Diuretics (Thiazide or Loop Diuretics): Prior treatment with high dose diuretics eg, furosemide (loop diuretic) and hydrochlorothiazide (thiazide diuretic) may result in volume depletion, and in a risk of hypotension when initiating therapy with Telz.

To be Taken into Account with Concomitant Use: Other Antihypertensive Agents: The blood pressure lowering effect of Telz can be increased by concomitant use of other antihypertensive medicinal products.

Based on their pharmacological properties it can be expected that the following medicinal products may potentiate the hypotensive effects of all antihypertensives including Telz: Baclofen, amifostine. Furthermore, orthostatic hypotension may be aggravated by alcohol, barbiturates, narcotics or antidepressants.

Corticosteroids (Systemic Route): Reduction of the antihypertensive effect.

Teli 80: Digoxin: When Telz was co-administered with digoxin, median increases in digoxin Cmax (49%) and in trough concentration (20%) were observed. It is therefore recommended that digoxin levels be monitored when initiating, adjusting and discontinuing Telz to avoid possible over- or under-digitalization.

Warfarin: Telz administered for 10 days slightly decreased the mean warfarin trough plasma concentration; this decrease did not result in a change in international normalized ratio (INR).

Other Drugs: Co-administration of Telz did not result in a clinically significant interaction with acetaminophen, amlodipine, glibenclamide, simvastatin, hydrochlorothiazide or ibuprofen. Telz is not metabolized by the CYP450 system and had no effects in vitro on CYP450 enzymes, except for some inhibition of CYP2C19. Telz is not expected to interact with drugs that inhibit CYP450 enzymes; it is also not expected to interact with drugs metabolized by CYP450 enzymes, except for possible inhibition of the metabolism of drugs metabolized by CYP2C19.

Incompatibilities: Not applicable.
