a.) Absorption:T max is 0.5 to 1 h. Food slightly reducesbioavailability of telmisartan, with an AUC reduction of approximately 6% witha 40 mg dose and 20% with a 160 mg dose. At 40 and 160 mg, the bioavailabilitywas 42% and 58%, respectively. Trough plasma concentrations with daily dosingare approximately 10% to 25% of C max.
b.) Distribution: -Telmisartan is more than 99.5% protein bound. Vd is approximately 500 L.
