... this drug since October of last year, I went in for a blood work / physical of all a sudden I have high platellet count, which leads to my doctor ordering alot of test and MRI... come to find out my liver is enlarge and so is my spleen... I mention to him that am taking Benicar but he did not seem that would be an issue... I never had this issues before had my medical screening once a year, nothing came out till last year when I was laid off and my stress level shut up high lead to my high blood pressure and getting prescribed benicar am taking the 40milligram dose.
