Default Benicar

I do not see any "new" postings. I have been on Benicar almost a year. I have been to see my Dr. many times. Good news, my BP is where it should be (I was borderline before). I have not felt like my self for a long time now. I have not thought it had anything to do with this drug, or any others I take. I tell my Dr. I just feel "off". No sex-drive,body-aches,cranky all the time and tired most of the time. I have been very dizzy but never related it to a drug. I thought I was getting "neverous leg syndrom", but could it be this drug? I was so pleased that it worked right from the start and I did not have to try other drugs, but now I am rethinking it. I have always been in good shape but since I started taking this drug, excersizing is hard! My husband makes me walk, but always feel so bad afterwards. Thanks everyone for "opening my eyes", I think I will try going off this drug slowly and see how I feel.

Sheila: I stumbled on this board. I have been taking Benicar 40/12.5 for a little over a year and have had some side effects that have come and gone. The one side effect that is intolerable is the fatigue. I too cannot exercise the way I used to. Tried so many different meds, this is the only one that has the least side effects so I have stayed with it. Don't like the way I feel.
