When considering raising the dose, it must be borne in mind that the maximum antihypertensive effect is generally attained four-eight weeks after the start of treatment. Telmisartan may be taken with or without food.

Telmisartan is not recommended for use in children below 18 years due to limited data on safety and efficacy.
