Have switched from Benicar HCT to Benicar (water portion didn't seem to have any effect) and after observing some nusiance ED with Benicar daily, got the doctor to agree to every other day dosage, which allows to plan (for sex on the weekend also.) But drugist suggested Losartan, and doctor agreed to rotate me to it. Nowadays, I'm finding greater and more frequent need for reading glasses, and I'm wondering if any of these BP meds will affect eyesight. I know BP meds are important, but my levels continue to creep into 140/96 range, even when calm, relaxed after diner with 20 oz Pepsi drink. Wondering what to adjust.
