Hi
Teveten plus contains 600 mg of eprosartan and 12.5 mg of hydrochlorothiazide. Eprosartan is an angiotensin II receptor antagonist used for the treatment of high blood pressure.Severe headache may occur as side effects of Eprosartan medication. If headache is not relief with simple medication like codiene 15mg and panadol 500mg, you better change to other angiotensin II receptor antagonists like Losartan, Olmesartan, Telmisartan, etc., alone or in combination with hydrochlorothiazide in consultation with your physician.
