Benicar hct alternative

Common Questions and Answers about Benicar hct alternative


478554 tn?1208038007 You are correct, Benicar is an expensive drug, I am on 40 mg per day with 12.5 of HCT (Benicar 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 benicar 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 Benicar 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?1499916784 My blood pressure is controlled with Benicar 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 Benicar 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 Benicar 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 Benicar 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.
