That is an ARB. ACE inhibitors are good too. Lisinopril is the one that I take.
Here is what I found comparing the two classes of drugs. The end result is the same since they both prevent vasoconstriction. One blocks the receptor the other stops angiotensin II from being formed, end result is similar.
"What is an advantage of using an ACEI compared to an ARB?
Cost. All ACEIs are available as generics, which means a lower cost for you, the patient. Several ACEIs are also available on many well known pharmacy generic prescription savings programs for as little as $4 for 30 tablets—benazepril, lisinoril, and enalapril are common examples.
Although several ARBs are now also available as generics, the cost can still be significantly higher than their ACEI counterparts.
What is an advantage of using an ARB compared to an ACEI?
Side effects. A common disadvantage to using an ACEI is their potential to cause a cough. The cough is a known and nagging side effect of many ACEIs.
Although ACEIs and ARBs work very similarly, ARBs DO NOT cause a cough, and are considered alternatives to ACEIs if you’ve tried them and they did not work for you due to the cough side effect."
I have never had any cough taking the ACE inhibitor Lisinopril.
A pulse pressure is considered abnormally low if it is less than 25% of the systolic value. The most common cause of a low (narrow) pulse pressure is a drop in left ventricular stroke volume. In trauma, a low or narrow pulse pressure suggests significant blood loss (insufficient preload leading to reduced cardiac output).
If the pulse pressure is extremely low, i.e. 25 mmHg or less, the cause may be low stroke volume, as in Congestive Heart Failure and/or cardiogenic shock.
A narrow pulse pressure is also caused by aortic valve stenosis and cardiac tamponade.
I'd appreciate it you'd kindly give a few sentence summary about Telmisartan... as to why you feel the medication is so good, or justified for AAS users. I'm not agreeing or disagreeing it is good or bad, just wondering.
You are blanketly advising an entire board full of strangers to start taking this medication.
Because I’ve done it 50 times and you’ve been here long enough here to have seen it at least once. I get tired of repeating myself so I figured one answer would be enough instead of posting the links for the 100th time. Google or search posts. It’s easy to find.
Telmisartan is arguably the second most discussed med on this board after metformin.
