Brief Answer:
no direct effect

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

benzonatate does not have any direct effect (or at least it has not been reported) on blood pressure or any heart condition. It may cause allergic reactions though, which may - indirectly - affect the blood pressure (lower it) and cause cardiovascular collapse in its most serious presentation.

I hope you find my comments helpful!
