I am taking Benicar HCT 40/25mg and metoporal since March and it is doing well controlling my HBP to a reasonable level. Am going on a cruise end of the month and am concerned about exposure to the sun. My medication bottle cautions about extensive sun exposure. I will definately be out in the sun most of the week and will use sunscreen. What type of problem might I expect? Rash? Bad sunburn? Am considering whether to switch back to the regular Benicar I took prior to the HCT- just for a week or two while I will be in the sun so much. However, it was not as effective in controlling my HBP. Any advice?
