Terry Reminder Says:

I am concerned about taking both prescriptions, as I am tired all the time. I tell my Dr., but he says if it keeps the pressure down keep taking them. Just wondered if I am the only one out there feeling this way.

Verwon Says:

That is a nornal side effect for these, it should, however, wear off after a few weeks as your body adjusts to the med and the change in your blood pressure. If it doesn't, then please speak to your doctor again and make sure to stress how severe it is.

My doctor put me on Norvacs and Lisiniprol and they made me so sick I had to get off of both of them. I had flu like symtoms no energy to do anything depressed and did you know that norvacs can also cause psychosis? I also got a cough and a sinus infection from the lisiniprol. I am very scared to take any medicines now. I always look at the side effects if I am not feeling well with my meds. If you have any side effects with your meds you need to be persistent with your doctor I was. Now I am on a small dose of a diuretic which I just started taking as of today and no more norvacs or lisiniprol. Please you do not have to suffer on medications that make you ill. Doctors can change them. Be persistent.

I have been taking Lisinopril and Norvasc in combination now for 4 years. Initially it drastically reduced my endurance and made everything much harder. It took a good year to get back to where I was before but I think I am there. Ran a 21:15 5 K this summer. OK for a 47 yr old weekend warrior. Give it a good try, the health benefits are worth it.

Brenda Purnell Says:

I take Lisnopril and norvasc 5mg. I haven't had any problems wit it. However, One concern I do have is itching all the time. I think it comes from the medicine. I ran out of my 5mg. My friend had some extras 10mg. I hope I am doing the right thing breaking the pill so I won't have to go without my pill.

buzzjane Says:

I am on .10mg. of lisinopril and .20 of amlodipine, and find I am fatigued too, but also often cannot sleep at nite in spite of that...what a mess that makes with my schedule. I stay on it tho because I have a rare platelet disease and it is doing what it is supposed to do. Never realized it might be a separate side-effect. Have you had your iron levels checked too? Mine was low and since taking supplements, my hemoglobin has gone up to near normal and it helped some.

I just started amlodipine...I have had anxiety problems for years PTS...I was on lisinopril for years and years...I think it started interacting with Surmontil which I was also on for years... was drinking vodka and my body finally said ENOUGH toxic the mean time my blood pressure went crazy high...even after I stopped all my addictions...I couldnt take the antidepressant yet was sick from not taking it...lisinopril made the blood pressure higher...the more I took the higher it the ER...not having a heart attack at least the EKG was blood pressure meds for 2 days...blood pressure was normal..go figure....then all of a sudden pressure was crazy high...chest pain again...jaw pain...kidneys hurt from the high blood pressure...started taking small amounts of clonidine...worked until HR went to 50 bpm...more chest pain...long story short lisinopril only slightly made me tired in the beginning...the hydrochlorothiazide was another story...that makes you tired...the amlodipine is evening out the blood pressure swings...however when it gets into my system...about 1-2 hrs.. I am getting some slight palpitations..its not making me tired as I have increased my workout by 30%...the bottom line that is hard to avoid ...and comes back at you for years...stress kills.....avoid all caffiene...dont smoke....dont drink excessively....

Lisinopril has given me severe muscle ache, shortness of breath, fatique, and bloody nose. I was given this medication for high blood pressure. I have been trying to get it out of my system and still after 3 days I feel so fatiqued and achey. I would advise no one take this mediction. They do not stress the side effets enough. I am 60, and untill I took this medication I felt fine. I am going to start with a diet change and excercise more, I weigh 130 and am 5;2 .

Rayman Says:

My BP was 180/102 fairly regular and my DRput me on Lisinopril 40 mg 1 year ago. I started having severe bloating and gas problems which I thought was from a change in my diet. I also noticed my stool was very loose. My BP stayed around 150/90. Finally DR put me on Norvasc 10 mg due to Raynauds and reduced Lisinopril to 20 mg. I noticed my gas problems were less. Then Dr told me to split both my Lisinopril & Norvasc and take half in morning and half at night. My symptoms are much better, still some gas but not severe. Now BP is 119/70 most always. I have had some leg problems as mentioned in another post, like a nerve is being stuck inplace, but usually only when I'm sitting at work for long time. I have not been tired, but I stay active and run and lift weights 3-4 times a week so I am use to pushing through most tired problems then I feel more energized.

I take Norsvac daily, and sometimes Lisinopril when my blood pressure is high. I am tired, constant headaches with occassional palpitation. I plan to go alternative medicine.
