Who should not take telmisartan amlodipine?

Telmisartan-amlodipine can be used for people of all ages, but adequate testing has not been conducted to determine the safety and efficacy in children. You should not take this medication if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant. Studies have shown adverse effects on fetal development in animals during the first trimester, while negative effects have been shown in human pregnancies during trimesters two and three. If you are allergic to any of the ingredients in telmisartan-amlodipine, you should not take it. There are certain conditions, such as angina, heart problems, kidney or liver disease, dehydration and hyponatremia, that may leave you at a higher risk of adverse reactions if you also take telmisartan-amlodipine. The medications used to treat some of these illnesses, such as angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, may decrease the effectiveness of the telmisartan amlodipine. It is important to discuss options with you doctor. Also, let your physician know if you are currently on dialysis or about to undergo a surgical procedure.
