Re: Changing from Lotrel to Benicar
I have been taking Lotrell for 2 years now, but have been taking Norvasc(which is a component of Lotrell) for 14 years. Never had swelling of my feet. I am also taking Atacand which is very similar to Benicar. Instructions say also to avoid alcohol. believe it may cut down on it's effectiveness. I don't drink so it doesn't apply to me.My advice would be to avoid alcohol while taking this medicine.
