Benicar HCT Interactions
If you are taking both Benicar HCT and a muscle relaxant, your body may metabolize the drugs differently than intended and increase the levels of muscle relaxant in the blood. In order to decrease the chances of this drug interaction, your healthcare provider may monitor you more closely and/or change the muscle relaxant dose.
Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs)
Benicar HCT can interact with NSAIDs in several ways. The combination could cause your blood pressure to increase or may cause swelling (edema), especially if you have congestive heart failure (CHF). If you are elderly, have kidney disease or kidney failure, or are dehydrated, taking NSAIDs and Benicar HCT together may cause kidney failure. Talk to your healthcare provider about this potential drug interaction before taking these medications together.
