The side effects of benicar include:

Dizziness, headache, diarrhea, back pain, upper respiratory symptoms, blood in the urine
Elevated blood sugars and/or triglycerides

These are the more common side effects and occur less than 10% of the time.
It is a very well tolerated medication.

If you would like to know the rare side effects (that occur less than 1% of the time) let me know.
