It depends upon the underlying causes of the high blood pressure. If you are on a healthy diet and get sufficient exercise and your metabolism is in healthy balance, then the Benicar HCT will do a much better job in a shorter time. If not, then the benefits of any blood pressure medication is limited, IMHNPO.

I took 2 meds in the same drug class as Benicar, Cozaar and Atacand. For me it took less than a day, I remember it was few hours after taking it. So I guess I would have the same effect with benicar too.
Good luck
