another angiotensin II receptor blocker called Micardis (telmisartan)

Boehringer Ingelheim is marketing another angiotensin II receptor blocker called Micardis (telmisartan).

It's a "me-too"...similar to Cozaar (losartan), Diovan (valsartan), Avapro (irbesartan), and Atacand (candesartan).

Micardis has the longest half-life...but all of these drugs can be taken just once a day.
