PITTSBURGH – Mylan Inc. has launched telmisartan tablets, a medication for hypertension, in dosages of 20 mg, 40 mg and 80 mg.

The company said Tuesday that its product is a generic version of Micardis tablets from Boehringer Ingelheim.

Telmisartan tablets in strengths of 20 mg, 40 mg and 80 mg had U.S. sales of approximately $259.2 million for the 12 months ended March 31, according to IMS Health figures cited by Mylan.

Micardis tablets are indicated for the treatment of high blood pressure, and the 80-mg tablets are used in certain high-risk people age 55 and older to help reduce the risk of certain cardiovascular problems such as stroke and heart attack.
