I take 1 in morning and 2 at night as directed. The generic I have been used to for all four years is the actavis (blue po) and have never tried any other generic.

I personally stay away from Mylan on anything and usually stay away from actavis best I can but hard on this until i choose to order...

Now can we add this telma 20 and what are side effects please ## By grdually reducing the intake of allpathic medicine, you take the ayurvedic medicine of Mukta Vati, a very good medicine for BP, from Patanjali - the Yoga Guru Baba Ramdev.
