I’am taking 80 mg Micardis every morning And my HBP

Patient: I’am taking 80 mg Micardis every morning. And my HBP is elevated every time I measure it right after waking up . It is up to 160/95. Can i split 80 mg in two and take one 40 mg in the morning and 40 mg before going to bed

 

 

Doctor: Thank you for writing to us.I think that you should talk to a Doctor to change the medication. Do not attempt to cha nge the medication by yourself.This is because it can cause a lot of side effects. See a Doctor. All the best.
