I believe the HCT portion of Benicar HCT is a diaretic, which removes the water in your system and increases urination. If your doctor wants to halt the HCT for a while but continues the Benicar at the same strength, it sounds like he knows what he's doing.
Could your increased heart beat be nerves? Have you psyched yourself into a reaction just by stressing over this?
