Re: benicar and heart rate

I do run. I do take Benicar. I always take the Benicar after I run never before (except for 1 time and my times were terrible). I do not notice any difference. I don't have a heart monitor, but my times are exactly the same. Even for the 5K I am the same.

Thanks Jay, Just trying to make sure the meds are not causing me to slow down. Might just be I'm getting older.

Re: benicar and heart rate

Zaldo,

Cozaar (another ARB) slows my heart rate considerably. On it, I am down AT LEAST 10-15 BPM.

Re: benicar and heart rate

my normal pulse is 70 - 80

while on benicar, it was 100 - 110, it seemed like there was an inverse relationship between my bp & my pulse, the higher my pulse the lower my bp

(of course benicar didnt control my bp very well, there were wide swings during the day)
