recently after taking benicar with atentnol i have been light headed and dizzy all the time
thought it was due to fluid in ears but ENT said i had no fluid..she thinks maybe its the benicar causing it
any advice

Benicar lowered my blood pressure too much. It made me dizzy. When I would roll over in bed, I felt like I was going to keep rolling forever.

I also had a very unusual side effect. about 45 minutes after I took the Benicar, I would become terrified that someone was going to plunge a knife between my shoulder blades. Nothing hurt, it was just a feeling of paranoia. It made me paranoid for about an hour then I would be fine. Reducing the dosage didn't help. It only happened with Benicar. It was very weird.
