read about olmesartan, and would like to know if it works just as well as benicar?
Olmesartan is already present in Benicar. Plus, Benicar also has hydrochlorothiazide a diuretic. If Benicar HCT has worked for you well it would mean that you need the diuretic as well, to control your blood pressure.
Hydrochlorothiazide is a thiazide diuretic (water pill) that helps prevent your body from absorbing too much salt, which can cause fluid retention.
Olmesartan is in a group of drugs called angiotensin II receptor antagonists. Olmesartan keeps blood vessels from narrowing, which lowers blood pressure and improves blood flow.
The combination of olmesartan and hydrochlorothiazide is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension).
