Benicar Savings Guide
Benicar (olmesartan) is prescribed to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Hypertension is a condition that can be related to a variety of diseases and disorders; but regardless of its cause, hypertension increases risk of stroke and heart attack. Benicar works by preventing blood vessel narrowing, which lowers blood pressure.
A generic for Benicar was recently approved by the FDA. Patients can begin saving money by asking their doctor if this generic is right for their condition. For those who must take brand-name Benicar, a 30-day supply can cost around $200 for the uninsured. Even with insurance, patients must still contend with co-pays. Hypertension medications are generally prescribed over a long period of time.
Printing out a Benicar coupon is one of the easiest ways to save money on this medication. While online, patients can also use the comparison shopping tools to find the lowest prescription prices in their area. Simply put in your zip code for an instant read out. Then print the coupon and take it with you to the pharmacy of your choice.
