How Olmesartan Works
Benicar is used to treat high blood pressure. It keeps blood vessels from narrowing, which lowers blood pressure and improves blood flow. Studies have shown that the higher the dose, the greater the drop in blood pressure. Please keep in mind that benicar is used only to help manage high blood pressure, it does not cure it.
Generic Benicar vs Brand Benicar
When comparing the brand Benicar to the generic Benicar the most significant difference is the manufacturer; the brand is manufactured by Pfizer (for our 10 & 40mg dose, and Sandoz for the 20mg), and the generic equivalent will be manufactured outside of a Pfizer facility typically by Cipla. The active ingredients and the desired results of the medications are identical. Another significant difference is the cost between the two; the generic is significantly less expensive.
