Hi,

From the literature, the combination of Telmisartan and ramipril has been associated with adverse effects. And the combination of Telmisartan and Amlodipine is better. However, since your mother is having headaches, which is probably due to the Amlodipine component, you can choose to have her take the combination of Telmisartan and Hydrochlorothiazide.

But on top of this, I recommend a consult with your doctor to check for other causes of headache. And to check her blood pressure levels on her current medication.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Daryl Derick B. Dizon, General & Family Physician
