How Does Benicar Work?

As with all angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs), Benicar works by blocking the action of a natural chemical in your body that constricts blood vessels, resulting in high blood pressure. When that chemical does not work, your blood vessels relax, and your blood pressure goes down.

What is the Usual Starting Dosage of Benicar?

The usual starting dosage of Benicar is 20 mg taken once per day. The dosage may be increased to 40 mg once a day. Always follow your doctor’s dosing instructions to make sure you are getting the proper amount of medication for your condition.

What are Benefits of Benicar?

High blood pressure increases your odds of kidney disease, heart attack, and stroke. Since Benicar lowers blood pressure, it decreases the risks associated with hypertension.

What are the Side Effects of Benicar?

Any medication has the potential to cause side effects. Side effects that you could experience on Benicar include:

  • Dizziness
  • Lightheadedness
  • Swelling in feet or hands
  • High potassium levels
  • Fainting
  • Little or no urination
  • Fast heart rate
  • Kidney problems
  • Chest pain
  • Ongoing or severe diarrhea with weight loss
  • Severe allergic reaction

What are Precautions to Consider Before Taking Benicar?

Benicar, while safe for most people, is not appropriate for everybody. Be sure to share your entire medical history and list of current medications with your doctor to prevent serious complications.

Benicar may cause serious interactions with some medications. Tell your doctor about all medications you take, including vitamins, supplements, and over the counter medications, especially:

  • Lithium
  • Colesevelam
  • Aliskiren
  • NSAIDs like aspirin, ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin), or naproxen (Aleve)
  • Potassium supplements

Benicar may cause complications with certain medical conditions. Be sure to mention any of the following to your doctor:

  • Congestive heart failure
  • Liver disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Dehydration
  • Diabetes

Do not take Benicar if you are pregnant or planning on becoming pregnant. If you become pregnant while taking Benicar, contact your doctor immediately and stop taking Benicar. Benicar may pass into breast milk, so do not take Benicar while breastfeeding without talking to your doctor first.

Can You Request a Benicar Prescription Online?

You can request Benicar online from a licensed doctor after a medical evaluation. During your online appointment, you can discuss your symptoms and concerns, and your physician will review your medication information and medical history. If the doctor decides to prescribe Benicar, they will electronically send the prescription to your preferred pharmacy, where you can pick it up as soon as it is ready.
