Re: Anyone with Benicar or Avapro experience

The Benicar HCT made me gain weight, which caused my BP & Cholesterol to go up, then my doc doubled my dosage & the weight really shot up

I felt a little off all the time I was on it & I was waking up to pee about every hour all night

It controlled BP sometimes, but i would get weird spikes up & down for no apparent reason, & I got occasional dizzy spells

my insurance company didnt like it, my copay was $50, which was higher than the retail price at my pharmacy, their preferred drug copay was $20

I also was so sore & tired & couldnt stand to work out
