My husband sent away for generic due to high co-pays. He had hypertensive crisis, BP 200/110, after BP had crept up over the course of several months on the generic. He is back on "Benicar" with BP in good control. Noticed some web sites state there is no true generic for Benicar and it won't be available due to patent laws till 2016. Is this true? BJB

Yes this is true generic benicar will not be available until 2016.-
"There is currently no generic version of Benicar available for sale because it is protected by a patent. When the patent expires in 2016, a generic Benicar may become available. Some companies claim to sell a generic version of Benicar, but these drugs are fake, substandard, and potentially dangerous, and should be avoided."
