another angiotensin II receptor blocker called Micardis (telmisartan)

      Boehringer Ingelheim is marketing another angiotensin II receptor blocker called Micardis (telmisartan).

      It's a "me-too"...similar to Cozaar (losartan), Diovan (valsartan), Avapro (irbesartan), and Atacand (candesartan).

      The manufacturer will promote Micardis as having the longest half-life...but all of these drugs can be taken just once a day.
