On this episode, I discuss olmesartan (Benicar) pharmacology, adverse effects, drug interactions, and pharmacokinetics.
Olmesartan can cause a unique GI adverse effect called enteropathy. I discuss this on this podcast episode.
Important monitoring parameters for olmesartan include potassium, renal function, and blood pressure.
Olmesartan has a longer half-life than losartan. I discuss how this might be advantageous in clinical practice.
