Welcome to XXXXXXX Thanks for your query.

Micardis HCT(Telmisartan+Hydrochlorothiazide) is prescribed as once daily tablet.

It is best avoided 4 hours before your bedtime to avoid having to get up for urination.

It has 24 hours action and do not repeat the dose now.

Be on regular treat to effectively control hypertension and to avoid the complication.

Hope the answer helps you.
