Why Would My Lisinopril Change From 10 Mg To 12mg If I Had No Issues With The 10mg

I was prescribed 10mg lisinopril for 30 days and I did respond well so my doc said she would continue the lisinopril for 3 months. When I picked up new prescription, I noticed the pills were blue, not pink, and they were 10-12mg. I am afraid to take these as I don't want to have an adverse reaction

Hello, Shelly! How are you?

I'd advise going back to your pharmacy to double check, I think they might have made an error. The ones that list 2 dosages like that are usually combination medications, so this one would most likely contain Lisinopril and Hydrochlorothiazide, so it could lower your blood pressure too much, or cause dehydration, since the Hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic.

The FDA lists possible side effects as including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination and stomach pain.

Is there anything else I can help with?

No, thank you. This was very helpful. I didnt realize that would make the difference in the mg's. I could have sworn my last perscription only said 10mg. The pills were pink and had a diuretic. These are blue and contain the same diuretic, but say 10-12mg. I will call my pharmacy and doctor befor I take these new ones

Yes, that would explain it, the second dosage listed is the amount of the diuretic, then.

Did you hear back from your doctor?
