I am on Micardis (40 mg) and take 20 mg in the morning and 20 mg in the evening for the past 4 months. The doctor is taking me off of it and leaving me on Toprol (25 mg). Has anyone else come off Micardis recently and if you were taking 20mg 2x per day - how would you recommend tapering the dosage?
It has been suggested that it be 20mg in the morning, none at night for a week, then 20mg every other day for a week. Then 2x per week, then off.
