I have chest pains that seem to tighten across my chest, and
lightheaded. I have high blood pressure and
noticed a CMV infection (not active) on a blood test result. I orginally was prescribed metoprolol
during a first visit to an ER with very high blood pressure 201/139. BP went down and I was released. The chest pains seemed to get worse with metoprolol
so my doc switched me to Benicar 20 mg. This didn't seem to bring the pressure down far enough so he prescribed 40mg Benicar.
