Does not matter much. Benicar (olmesartan) HCT can be taken with or without meals - doesn't have an impact. It is suggested that metoprolol be taken with or just after meals, but I have not found and have not been aware of a significant effect by food. In summary, it does not matter much when they're taken in relation to meals. Most important is to take them as directed, aiming for roughly the same times of the day each day. Read more...

Dr switched me from Benicar (olmesartan) hct 20/12.5 to lisinopril hctz 20/12.5. Also take metoprolol 50mg 2x day and klorcon10 1x day. Bp is 81/49p48. No symptoms?

Depends on Symptoms. The best way to answer this is to say that it is not necessarily too low. If there is no lightheadedness or dizziness, and the heart rhythm is sinus bradycardia (that is, a normal rhythm, just slower), then in general a blood pressure and hr as above is safe. However, depending on the underlying medical conditions, it may be reasonable to remove one or more of the 3 blood pressure medications. Read more...
