RUSH ANSWERS PLEASE How long to wean off the benicar

I started cutting the 20mg in half on 3/19/05 and the bp has hovered around 100/65 to 105/70 with a few drops to about 90/60 for some reason.

Today will be one week and I am ready to drop it altogether to see if the Toprol will keep it at the same levels.

Am I doing it to soon or should I wait another week?

RUSH ANSWERS PLEASE I am ready to go on this one because the thought of being half normal means a lot to me. Plus it will make it easier to chip away at the toprol problem. Woohooo

Benicar doesn't need any "weaning". You can just drop it. Your BP will gradually increase to premedicated levels. It doesn't have a rebound effect.

I agree, Mikey,

I think you will be just fine with the Toprol alone. I'll bet you won't even notice the Benicar is missing.
