I am encouraged to ask query. I am taking losartan 50 twice. But my internist says that since bp is not getting controlled, I need to switch over to telmisartan 40 mg twice. In recent responses given by your goodsrlf, I want to know whether all being sartans is telmisartan as effective as olmesartan or should I ask my dr abot olmesaryan. Is telmisartan a better drug orcrather equally effective drug as olmesartan ?
All sartans belogn to the same group and therefore have similar effects. There could be some difference between the compounds but if we consider published reports, there is no real difference between telmisartan and olmesartan, both are superior to losartan, which was a prototype drug. I would accept both telmi and olme as equal drugs and not try to differentiate between them.Yes some persons may find one drug better than the other, that is a property of suitability and not of efficacy or safety.
All the best
