It interrupts my sleep and after a couple of months it gets worse. I do well with the beta blockers like Benicar, but it is so expensive! What can I take for high blood pressure that will work? My blood pressure without medicines run about 165/80. With BenicarHCT dosage 40 mgs it runs about 124/80. My husband and I do not have insurance. Wal-Mart gave me this long list of of high blood pressure medicines, but researching each one takes forever. Please, help.
Hello Sharon Sunshine
Benicar (generic name Olmesartan) is not a beta blocker it is more like an ace inhibitor. However unlike an ace inhibitor it is less likely to cause the persistent dry cough. Benicar belongs to a family of drugs called angiotensin-II receptor antagonists. Go and see your doctor to discuss your treatment.
