High blood pressure can be a serious problem. But your doctor is there to help you. Some people find it hard to talk with their doctors. They may feel embarrassed, shy, or rushed. Remember that your doctor counts on you to discuss questions or concerns you may have about high blood pressure. Be sure to talk openly with your doctor about any health issues that worry you.
Lowering your blood pressure is a goal that you and your doctor should both care about. You are partners and you’re in this together. Your doctor can help you with a treatment plan to manage blood pressure. Your plan may include diet, exercise, reducing stress, and taking medicine like BENICAR or BENICAR HCT.
Remember: There are no generic forms of BENICAR or BENICAR HCT. Ask your pharmacist to fill your prescription with the brand your doctor prescribed.
