High Blood Pressure

I had my PM for 7 weeks and have been battling high BP since the implant. Prior to PM I was on 40 mg of Vasotec and BP was controlled. Since PM BP has been anywhere between 150/80 to 205/102. Doc first tried 50 mg of Toprol XL which brought it down some but never to normal. Yesterday he increased the Toprol XL to 100 mg. This morning upon getting out of bed my BP was again 190/100. I have taken two doses of the 100 mg, one yesterday and one today. Any thoughts on how long it will take the new does of Toprol to kick in?

Anyone else experience these symptoms after PM. The reason for my PM was SSS and I am being paced in one chamber.
