Benicar (Olmesartan) is given with other medicines to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). High blood pressure adds to the already working heart and arteries. Continuous high blood pressure can lead to under functioned heart and blood arteries. Olmesartan falls under the category of angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB). It works by blocking a substance in the body that causes the blood vessels to constrict. In other words, olmesartan relaxes blood vessels which lowers the blood pressure and increases the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart.

What's the difference between generic drugs and brand name drugs?
What's the difference between the branded products you sell and the ones I get locally?
The branded drugs we sell are chemically and therapeutically no different from the ones you get in your local pharmacy. They both generally come from the same exact manufacturer. Generally, the main difference* is in the packaging and the price. Our packaging may be different from what you get locally, but we're also much cheaper.
* Other differences may include differences in trade name, form, and general appearance.
Why are there packaging differences?
Due to differences in government regulation, different countries have different packaging requirements. For example, a product in Canada (or any other country) will have different packaging than the same product in the US even though both drugs are chemically and therapeutically equivalent and are generally manufactured by the same exact company.
Why are your drugs so much cheaper?
Due to government price controls, medications from Canada and many other countries are often significantly cheaper than in the United States. Also, other countries may have more affordable generic versions of drugs, which may not yet be available in the US.
