Benicar is an oral blood pressure medication that blocks angiotensin receptors. It belongs in a class of drugs called angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs). Angiotensin is a protein whose presence in the blood promotes secretions of the hormone, aldosterone. These secretions of aldosterone tend to raise blood pressure. Benicar and other ARBs work by relaxing blood vessels which allows blood to flow more easily.
When high blood pressure is lowered, the risk of strokes, kidney problems, and heart attacks decrease.
