Description

What Is Benicar?

Benicar is a medication prescribed to people who suffer from hypertension. It is an angiotensin II receptor antagonist which means that it prevents blood vessels from narrowing to reduce blood pressure and to ensure adequate blood flow. It is often prescribed along with other medications that reduce blood pressure.

About Hypertension

To understand hypertension you have to understand how blood pressure affects the body. As our heart pumps, the blood it pumps exerts a force against arterial walls. Hypertension is a term that is used to describe high blood pressure.

This condition can be categorized into two types:

Primary hypertension – This condition develops over time as we age.

Secondary hypertension – This condition is usually caused by certain medications and other health issues (such as kidney disease, adrenal gland disorders, obstructive sleep apnea, preeclampsia, etc.) and can usually dissipate if those issues are addressed.


Common Causes

You are more likely to suffer from hypertension with age. That’s because with time our blood vessels start to constrict become harder. When this happens, they do not remain flexible enough to allow blood to pump through at moderate speed resulting in hypertension. If the condition is not treated, it can lead to kidney disease, heart disease, a stroke and prove fatal.

You can increase your chances of getting the condition if you are obese, are stressed out most of the time, drink alcohol excessively, have a high salt diet, have a family history of the condition, suffer from diabetes and smoke regularly.

Before You Take Benicar

Do not take Benicar if you:

  • Do not urinate as much as you should or have trouble urinating.
  • Are allergic to the ingredients in the medication.
  • Have never taken other medication that is used to treat hypertension before.
  • Are pregnant or planning to get pregnant or are breastfeeding.
