    Default Potential interaction between Micardis (Telmisartan) and Curcumin?

    My dad suffers from back pain and I bought him some Meriva (Curcumin phytosome) to try and alleviate some discomfort, right now he's pretty reliant on NSAIDs, Ibuprofen mainly.

    He is also taking Micardis (Telmisartan) for high blood pressure. There's a warning on the Micardis box that says not take it with Potassium, which I believe turmeric (curcumin) contains, but I'm not sure

    Should he avoid taking these two medications together?

    I think you need to call the Meriva manufacturer (Thorne Research) and ask them if it contains potassium. I have found them very helpful on the phone when I had a question about one of their products.
