Accidentally switched Amlodipine and Lisinopril dose

I take 1 Lisinopril at 10:30 am, 1 Amlodipine at 3:50 pm, and another Lisinopril at 10:15 pm ... BUT, I accidently switched the 3:50 dose of Amlodipine and took the Lisinopril. Is there a cause for concern? I am a 58 year old female who suffered 2 TIAs. I also have carotid stenosis, left atrial enlargement, and diabetes type 2. Please advise. ## There shouldn't be any reason for concern, unless your doctor feels otherwise, but you should skip the next dose, so you don't end up taking too much of the Lisinopril. As a matter of fact, most people take Lisinopril as a once daily dose, rather than splitting the dosage, since it tends to help people remember to take it, if they don't have to remember repeated dosages. Taking too close together with the previous dose may increase s...

Can I take nyquil cold & flu with lisinopril

I'm on lisinopril for high blood pressure. I have a runny nose, cough, sneezing, and would like to know if i can take NyQuil cold and flu? ## Hi Wanda, According to the University of Maryland Medical Center ( / drug interaction tool), there are no interactions listed between Lisinopril and Nyquil Cold & Flu. This is not to say that no interactions exist, so it's always a good idea to double check with your prescribing doctor first; but I would probably feel safe with this knowledge if it were me. I hope you get around to feeling better soon! I'm actually just getting over a similar set of symptoms myself (which I attributed to being a nasty sinus infection); and I found that oregano oil and garlic were staple items in my recovery due to their potent antibacterial ...

Lisinopril red blood cell count

Can this medication make your red blood cell count high? ## Lisinopril is what I'm on. I had to look up the side effects since I'm sensitive to medication. It's an ACE inhibitor. It can make you dizzy, headaches, increase your potassium levels (WebMD says don't take a potassium supplement if you're taking Lisinopril.) You can have abnormally low blood pressure, decreased blood platelets, decreased function of the bone marrow. Decreased neutrophils (a type of white blood cell), deficiency of granulocytes - a type of white blood cell. I'd suggest doing a Google search to see what you can find. I've noticed you can't find the information you need all in one place. Good luck! ## No, that is not listed as known side effects. In addition to what Nikki has alrea...

lisinpro 20/25

hi,for three years i've been using this pill. in the last year i've been having a reaction that has caused spot on several parts of the body. now when i the pill was yellow beige is was fine. now i keep getting a pinky color of which i feel im slightly allergic to. who makes the yellow one. ive had at least three different manifactors i would like to know who makes the yellow one. any info would help. thanks letha ## It sounds like you are getting a different generic form of the medication. Talk to the pharmacist to see if he switched this on you. He can tell you the manufacturer. Some generics aren't exactly the same. The pink one has something in it that the brown one didn't. The other thing is, maybe the pink pill is a mistake, the wrong medication. Talk to the pharma...

round white pill with 20 on one side, scored on the other

I found some white pills amongst other benzodiazepines in a drawer at a friends house and I'm having trouble distinguishing them. ## I've scoured the internet for this pill. and the only one that fits the description is a german version of clonazepam (antelepsin). However, that pill seems to have beveled edges. The one I have is smooth with 20 on one side and a scored on the other side so that it can easily break in half. I was told it is 2mg clonazepam. I am not able to confirm because I cant find an online source for its description. ## I searched for this same pill, that I found on my dresser. I came up with 20mg Lisinopril, which has I am prescribed, but never remember them being white. It is for high blood pressure. But it is white, round with 20 on one side and a score mar...

lisonopril and continued rash

I woke up 3 nights ago with both arms covered by what appeared to be mosquito bites. I was mystified,nut thought it might be poison ivy. The next morning, I called my BCBS hotline, who identified this an allergic reaction. I called my doctor, who took me off of lisinopril and wnats me to try taking nothing for a week, then start 2.5 mg amlodipine if necessary. I have minor rash (itchy) on my legs every morning. How long will this continue? I stopped taking fish oil, a recent addition, in case this was the culprit. I also got a severe rash from hyzaar blood pressure medecine. I have also been taking very low doses of xanax for a year now. ## Unfortunately, allergic reactions are always possible, and if you've had a reaction already to a medication, in the past, there is a good chance...

Lisinopril anxiety and shortness of breath

Has anybody experienced anxiety, shortness of breath, rapid heartbeat, and abdominal pain after starting Lisinopril? Note that I have never had problems with anxiety and do not believe it is a panic attack. Did not have this issue until on this medication. ## Lisinopril is commonly used to help lower blood pressure. These could be the signs of a serious adverse reaction, you need to contact your doctor immediately. ## I have constant anxiety. Feeling of doom. Cough. Body tingles. Trouble sleeping because of the anxiety. ## The Lisinopril can cause this, it is rare, but highly possible. My doctor recently had me try it and I experienced severe problems, as well. Have you spoken to your doctor about it? There are other medications you can try. ## After starting Lisinopril my husbands pers...

lisinopril anxiety and palpitations

I have come to think the extreme anxiety depression heart palpitations and tingling in my left fingers are related to the 20 mg lisinopril I started just over a year ago. I also take amlodpine and warfarin ...I cant believe it took me so long to suspect this. I will speak to my doctor but also want to see what those who quit lisinopril have to say about the weaning period and side affects while cutting down and quitting . Please advise. This is horrible beyond anything I have ever experienced. Please help if you can ! ## Sorry, I just saw this post with more details. In this case, since you are on several medications, it is hard to say which one might be causing your symptoms, if they are due to a combination of them, or if they may be unrelated.

Stopping Lisinopril

I have been taking 10 mg/day of Lisinopril for 3 months and have developed a tightening in the chest and flu like symptoms. Within the past 3 weeks I have felt progressively worse and would like to stop. Is it ok to just quit or must I wean myself off? ## Lisinopril is used to help control high blood pressure. That said, most of these medications can cause dangerous rebound effects if you have been on them for a period of time and abruptly stop taking them, this can include increased blood pressure and heart rate, with the risk of heart attack and stroke. The side effects that you are experiencing are normal for this class of medications, you may also experience headache and dizziness. If it is getting worse, however, and not tapering off, you should speak to your doctor immediately abo...

lisinopril quitting

Can some one tell me what to expect when weaning off of 20 mg down to 15 mg now no effects but now trying to go to 12.5 and today is first day and seem to be having some effects of being hot and feeling like i want to panic. I have been on it for 14 months for blood pressure . can any one advise how to wean off I just plan on 2.5 mg cuts every 10 days or so unless I get better advice ? ## Why are you stopping it? Has your doctor approved your doing so? If you were taking it for high blood pressure, you shouldn't stop without a physician's approval, because if it's the only thing controlling your blood pressure, it will become elevated, again, even if you taper off of it slowly. Are you monitoring your blood pressure and heart rate?
