What is Benicar?

Benicar can help lower uncontrolled high blood pressure.

By blocking this specific chemical, Benicar can help lower blood pressure by helping your blood vessels relax and widen. Benicar also adds a medicine that decreases the water content in the body since water retention is also a factor in higher blood pressure.
