Default Benicar experience

Started Benicar about 1 yr ago, 10 mg. BP went down somewhat. Increased to 20 mg. BP got to 117/79. Some days shortly, started to notice lethargy, a bit difficulty breathing, and felt needles mostly in torso (similar to 'needles in your feet' feeling, but not as intense). These symptoms actually started some months before, but not as pronounced. Reduced to 10 mg. BP went up, now avg 129/81.<br><br>It's important for me to exercise via brisk walks. That helps to reduce BP, too.<br>
