Your Teveten dosage will be based on several factors, such as other medications you are taking and other medical conditions you may have. For most people with high blood pressure, the starting amount is 600 mg, taken once daily. However, your healthcare provider may adjust this dose as needed until your blood pressure is adequately controlled.

Teveten Dosage for High Blood Pressure
The usual dose of Teveten for most people when starting to treat high blood pressure is 600 mg once daily. Your healthcare may adjust this amount, if necessary. The typical recommended range is between 400 mg and 800 mg total per day.
Teveten is normally given once a day in the beginning of treatment. If, however, once-daily dosing does not control blood pressure over the entire course of the day, the medication may be given twice daily.
