- Benicar caused pink eye
When taking Benicar, my sinuses have been effected. They swell and it's difficult to breathe through my nose. Last night (9/21) I went to the ER for severe conjunctivitis. I am allergic to penicillin, so believe after reading several articles on this drug that I'm suffering from this condiition due to the Benicar. I'm going to stop using it right away, and call my doctor tomorrow morning. So, change your number from 15 to 16 who have had pink eye while on this medication. I'd be interested to know if the other 15 people also experienced sinus problems while on Benicar. Thank you for this forum.
