In brief: Benicar (olmesartan)

Benicar (olmesartan) is an angiotensin II receptor antagonist.
Olmesartan keeps blood vessels from narrowing, which lowers blood pressure and improves blood flow. Benicar is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) in adults and children who are at least 6 years old. It is sometimes given together with other blood pressure medications
