Common Questions and Answers about Benicar hct alternative


478554_tn?1208038007 You are correct, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Benicar</span> is an Expensive drug, I am on 40 mg per day with 12.5 of HCT (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Benicar</span> HCT). Since there is no generic, my insurance also tries to block it's use, but they have to give it to you if your doctor provides the additional documentation, but it won't help the price. TGL's are easy to control, usually cutting back on empty carbs like those found in breads, pastas, sugars and processed foods will have a huge impact.
Avatar_m_tn And shouldn't the surgeon have contacted the hospital and my primary doctol and made them aware of this? I take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Benicar</span> hct for blood pressure, Zocor for cholesterol and welchol packets for triglycerides and low dose aspirin recommended by my cardiologist. I read online that Benicar, zocor, welchol and aspirin can raise my creatinine. Is this true? I need advice of what to do next.
Avatar_n_tn Sorry, got my medications mixed up, I have been on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Benicar</span> HCT for blood pressure and Zocor for my lipids which are now normal. Also, I had a normal cardiac work up in March of this year including all the tests, nuclear stress, echo and bloodwork. Sorry for the confusion.
159619_tn?1318997813 My blood pressure is controlled with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Benicar</span> HCT 40mg and is steady at 110/70, my TC is 151 with HDL of 40 and LDL at 58, but tri's are still on the high side. No family history of early onset CAD, don't smoke and exercise daily, 45 -60 minutes on a treadmill, no symptoms at all. I have had two thallium stress tests in 2005 & 2006 that were negative, echos each of the past three years and all have been normal.
343006_tn?1314450071 Whatever the case, the Alternative of not taking the meds, in my case <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Benicar</span> HCT, are not that good either. BTW, nice Stang, I used to be a Mustang guy, my last was a 98 Cobra, loved that car, now into vettes.
179332_tn?1273250959 She then did a biopsy and found I had a drug reaction. The only meds I take are <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Benicar</span> HCT and potassium. I immediately went of the Benicar and started taking a variety of other BP meds. At first they though I was allergic to the HCT, but then realized it was the Benicar. I am now on Bystolic, but still have the rash. I also take 80mg of Lasix per day. I still have the rash... but was told by the dermatologist it may take up to 6 months for the meds to get out of my system.
1210142_tn?1266080631 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Benicar</span> HCT is an ARB with a diuretic in it. It is really great stuff, it allows your arteries to relax and absorb the force of each heart beat. I have been very happy with it.
