Since taking this medication, my blood pressure has increased from 125/72 to 160/100. I do not see this under the listed side effects. Has anyone else experienced the something?

Started taking 25mg 3 X day on Friday, today is Tuesday & no relief as of yet? Going to speak to my Dr soon if condition doesn't improve. None of the side effects others reported, but my big toe still hurts!
