Re: What's with this?
Benicar worked for me immediately. You may need the 40's. Normally, I'd expect the Benicar 20's to be stronger than the Diovan 80's. But, this varies so much per individual. Also, the two drugs are eliminated differently (Benicar is 50/50 renal/liver; Diovan is 10/90). These drugs tend to work more in an on/off fashion. If you are underdosed, the drug won't do much of anything. Then, once you hit a critical dose level, it kicks in.
