Blood Pressure Home > Benicar HCT Interactions

It is important to be aware of Benicar HCT interactions, such as diuretics, potassium supplements, or oral diabetes medications. These interactions can cause the body to metabolize the medications differently than intended and can lead to an increase in blood sugar or potassium levels, among other things. To decrease the chances of Benicar HCT drug interactions, your healthcare provider may adjust your dosages or monitor you more closely.
