Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Your BP is elevated since you stopped norvasc.

Benicar HCT dose can be increased to 2 tablets daily to control your BP.

Pulse 50 is still on the lower side.

But if you do not feel dizzy then probably ok.

However, low pulse with dizziness will require further evaluation to rule out any underlying heart problem.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
