Phoenix Benicar Lawyers
One medication that is commonly prescribed to treat high blood pressure is Benicar. While Benicar has become a popular drug, it doesn’t always have the desired results. You could experience one or several side effects, some of which can be quite serious and that could make your health concerns far more than treating high blood pressure.

What is Benicar?
Benicar is a drug that keeps your blood vessels open wide, letting blood flow throughout your body and circulate, and helping to reduce your concerns of high blood pressure. In addition to treating high blood pressure, some doctors also have prescribed Benicar to treat other conditions.
Side Effects of Benicar
Benicar can result in side effects that are minor annoyances, as well as ones that are dangerous and should be addressed immediately. Side effects can gradually lessen or disappear over time as your body adjusts to the drug. To view a thorough list of Benicar side effects, see this website.
The minor side effects of Benicar include:

Other side effects, less frequently seen, involve problems with the stomach or tingling in the extremities. Some people may also develop dizziness and others may break out in rashes.
The major side effects of Benicar can be indicative of serious internal problems. If you are experiencing any side effect that you feel is serious, contact your doctor immediately.
