Benicar was one of the many they tried me with during the past year and a half. I didn't have side effects except for the usual first week of getting used to it, but it didn't bring my bp down. Everyone is different though.

There are so many different meds out there. With your Dr's help you'll find the one that works for you without the side effects you don't want. One of the meds I was on cause me to retain water...by the end of the day by feet were so swollen I couldn't get my sandels on, another gave me a dry cough..the one I'm on now works great with so side effects.

Hello and Welcome. I have been taking Benicar for a year now and have not had any side effects. Before I was on lisinopril which had me constantly coughing. My benicar is 20/12.5 so I am giving it a thumbs up! emoticon
