Thanks for your question. As always, I would contact your local pharmacist or physician for specific drug information.
According to our drug page on Benicar:
You must take Benicar or Benicar HCT regularly for it to be
effective. Since blood pressure declines gradually, it may be a
couple of weeks before you get significant benefits, and you must
continue taking it even though you feel well. This drug does not
cure high blood pressure; it merely keeps it under control.
Benicar or Benicar HCT should be taken once a day, preferably at
the same time each day. It can be taken with or without food.
--If you miss a dose...
Take it as soon as you remember. If it's almost time for your
next dose, skip the one you missed and go back to your regular
schedule. Do not take two doses in the same day.
Store at room temperature.
