Benicar Side Effects
Other Benicar side effects can occur, although they only happen in less than 1 percent of people. Given how uncommon they are, it is difficult to tell whether these side effects are caused by the medication or by something else.
Some of these rare side effects include but are not limited to:
- Spinning sensation (vertigo)
- Heartburn or indigestion (dyspepsia)
- High cholesterol
- Hair loss (see Benicar and Hair Loss)
- Serious breakdown of muscle (known medically as rhabdomyolysis).
You may experience some or none of the Benicar side effects listed in this article. There is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried. Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking the drug. Also let your healthcare provider know if you develop something that "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
