Detailed Answer:

Angiotension receptor blocker drugs like telmisartan has been conclusively proved to have good control over blood pressure while maintaining renal protecting effects. Therefore if you were my patient, I wouldn't hesitate to start telmisartan in this circumstance.

You can talk to your doctor and start of with once a day schedule of telmisartan.

Hope this helps. Write back for clarifications.
