Is there a generic version of Benicar?

There is not currently a generic version of Benicar (olmesartan medoxomil) for sale. The first patent for Benicar doesn’t expire until 2016. Even then, a generic version may not be available for other reasons. Only purchase Benicar from licensed pharmacies or you may not be getting the correct drug and strength.
