    My husband was recently prescribed a blood pressure drug called Telmisartan. What was delivered to us is a generic from Glenmark that is made in India. I believe Micardis is the original form of Telmisartan but need more information.

    Is anyone familiar with Glenmark’s generic Telmisartan, possible side effects? We regularly avoid generics, but we might have problems getting our insurance to pay unless we have used the generic and had side effects ourselves. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Does Micardis cause any damage to the retina over long term use.
