    I have been taking Benicar/HCTZ for a couple of years with good BP response. I am 68 and male. The last 7-10 days I have been bothered by anxiety at night, very hard to sleep, a feeling of possible doom. Cardiologist has done EKG and labs, all normal. I now am wearing a 48-hour EKG monitor and will have a coronary arteriogram later this week. These symptoms just came out of the blue. I have never had any problems with anxiety! I am stopping the Benicar, going on a Beta-Blocker that i have from earlier treatment (it worked pretty good but Benicar was supposed to be "fancier") and am hoping this helps. This AM was first day without Benicar. How long did others have the symptoms before they went away? Thanks!

    I know that Benicar caused my Spinal Stenosis. In 2008 I was taking Benicar and was having severe Celiac like symptoms. At the same time as I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease I suddenly had lower back pain. I went to pain management Doctor group, had X-rays and was confirmed to have Spinal Stenosis. Both Celiac & SS @ the exact same time. Have been on pain meds ever since. Found out years later of the tie in with Benicar for miss diagnosis of Celiac Disease & real Spinal Stenosis.
