Default Benicar

I have been on Benicar for three weeks now, because I was in the process of trying to get over a bad cold ( mild case of pneumonia)at the time of starting Benicar, I've notice I am unable to get over this sore throat thing I am able to take a nap in the after late evening and still go to bed at night and rest all night, this is something I was never able to do also I am able to sit and watch T.V another thing I was unable to do in other words this medication has slown my life down tremendous I don't know if that is a good thing as I was normally hyper ( very) I am 38 years old and I take 40mg ( 1 tablet a day) when I spoke to my doctor they claim that was not a side affect...but if you read the information there are no side affects but dizzyness this is a new product on the market and they are handing out samples like it's bubble gum but I will start to break my tablets in half starting tomorrow, but I have lost a liitle wait, my blood pressure is at normal now 120/60 it was 185/98 <br>My question is why is so many people on blood pressure medicines these days I know its mainly because of our eating habits, all the fried foods, french fries so I have decided to go on vegetables and fruits. <br>I hope this was helpful
