I have been taking Benicar HCT for about 6 weeks. I experienced rapid weight gain and an elongated uvula. The elongated uvula flaps when I lie down to sleep, which wakes me up. The last three weeks have been pretty sleepless. I'm exhausted. Has anyone else experienced weight gain or an elongated uvula while taking Beincar HCT??
Contact your DOCTOR ASAP... serious side effects
Unexplained swelling of the head or neck (including the face, lips, tongue, or throat) and rapid weight gain as well.
Report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. call 1-800-FDA-1088.
Take care ... from a caring individual
