Yes the dose can be increased. However probably get more immediate result by adding second med such as Losartan.

The first question I would ask is the pain is related to position or is it simply nocturnal. What is the quality of the pain and what makes it better or worse. Are there associated symptoms such as sweating , weight loss or nausea. There are a number of conditions that cause chest pain that can be narrowed down by a discussion with your MD. Tests are then confirmative of a suspected diagnosis.

Could be normal response such as being amnemic, or stress. Alternatively one might consider arrhythmia, autonomic dysfunction. Suggest holter monitor if daily or an event recorder if sporadic. In the interim see if the puke is regular and is the onset gradual or instantaneous.
