Micardis is a blood pressure medication of the type known as angiotensin receptor blockers (or ARB's). Angiotensin is a chemical that the body produces to raise blood pressure and these drugs work by blocking their effects.

What is the normal blood preasure for a 20 year old?

120/80 is the ideal bloodpressure (120 being the bloodpressure at a heartbeat, 80 being the bloodpressure in between heartbeats). Small deviations are acceptable: the peak pressure should be between 110 and 140, the low tension between 70 and 90. From 140/90 up, this is considered high bloodpressure and a risk factor for diseases. A very small difference between high and low (say, 110/90) can also be an indication of a problem. By the way, if you have a lower bloodpressure than the ideal BP, consistently, and you feel healthy otherwise, don't worry about it! There just are people whose bloodpressure is always low, usually very petite females. Personally, I feel fine at 90/60, and not-so-fine at 120/80, actually... A low bloodpressure combined with a feeling of weakness and dizzyness is certainly a problem, as is a low bloodpressure after an accident or other trauma with blood loss! A very low BP can cause your brain to suffer oxygen starvation, and should be treated by a doctor immediately!
