Lisinopril Overview

Lisinopril is a drug of the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor class used primarily in treatment of high blood pressure, heart failure, and after heart attacks. It is also used for preventing kidney and eye complications in people with diabetes. Its indications, contraindications, and side effects are as those for all ACE inhibitors. Lisinopril was the third ACE inhibitor (after captopril and enalapril) and was introduced into therapy in the early 1990s.[3] A number of properties d...

G2 H2 Pinkish ## If you would like more info on Lisinopril you can look here ## This drug really works! ## Hey, I am on 5mg. I got sick and my Dr said not to take them unless needed cause it was dropping. I have been taking it for the past few days cause it goes up every other day and it helped me but today it's 140/98. ## Lisinopril is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure, and certain cardiac conditions. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, hypotension, and increased urination. Glenda, that is a very unusual way of taking it. How low was it dropping? Are you on any other medications?

Lisinopril, lupin/actavis , is it the same ?
2 Replies RSS Share
I've been taking lisinopril, lupin 20 mg. for a number of years My last rx was refilled recently and the pharmacy substituted it with actavis 20 mg. With the lupin, my b.p. readings were always good. With the actavis my elavated . I have also experienced a terrible rash and intermittent hives. Could the change in meds have caused this? Yesterday I was prescribed verapamil. ( haven't started to take it yet )The pharmacy has filled the prescription with verapamil-ER 120 mg MYLAN. I have severe chemical allergies (paraphenadiamine, Balsam of Peru, methylcloroisothiolizone, quinoline mix and wool alchohols). My outbreak may not have anything to do with the med change, but I thought I should investigate all avenues. ## Actavis is the manufacture and I don't take lisinopril...

List Of Things Not To Take With Lisinopril
72 Replies RSS Share
What is not allowed while taking lisinopril; food, drugs or drinks. ## Lisinopril is an ACE inhibitor, that is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure. If you are being treated for high blood pressure, you should be informed to avoid food or beverage products that contain real licorice or licorice extract, since it can raise blood pressure. The only food/beverage interaction is that you should watch out for items that contain very high levels of potassium. Getting to much potassium, while taking Lisinopril can lead to Hyperkalemia, which can be a dangerous condition. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, headache and stomach pain.

Blood pressure medication that does not contain sulfa
Post a Reply Share
I need a list of blood pressure medications that do not contain sulfa as I have an allergy to sulfa and so far have been on 4 different meds that all made my throat swell. I took: Lisinopril, Amlodipine, Metoprolol, Methyldopa. So it’s generic or sulfa that’s the problem in these.

Need a new pain management specialist
1 Reply RSS Share
I was dropped from consultants in pain management due to my blood pressure being high twice within 10 days. I now am on new medication, 40 mg Lisinopril and my blood pressure is back to normal. This means, that I am in search of a new specialist. I am 63 years of age and still working after numerous surgeries from injuries that are all documented. I am leaving for Baltimore Maryland in a week but will need to have a prescription with me in order to perform my duties. Can anyone suggest a provider for me? Thank you in advance. ## That is very odd, that's not a normal reason for them to dismiss someone, usually they give you a chance to see your primary care physician, or a cardiologist to get it under control. How high was it? Can you post back with some of the readings? The FDA list...

Lisinopril 20 mg pill size - manufactured by Lupin
4 Replies RSS Share
Are they now smaller? I'm concerned. Purchased a new refill and I'm finding the 20 mg pills are much smaller than my last refill. When did this occur? ## What are the markings on the tablet? I'm sorry, but I need this additional information in order to double check the information for you. It is possible that they changed the fillers they used, so the tablets are now smaller. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I take Lisinopril 10 mg also and my newest RX pills still show 10 mg, but they are much smaller. The pharmacist assured me that the dosage is correct. Still, it's troubling that the company hasn't provided an...

Lupin lisinopril pill size change
72 Replies RSS Share
I take 10 miligram Lupin tables - have been taking them 2x a day for 20 years. Today, I opened the bottle and they were 1/2 the size. Same markings on the pill and container, same color, same manufacturer but 1/2 the size. I asked the pharmacy assistant about it and she said the company was making them smaller but they were the same. I asked how they were doing that - were they removing fillers? Why did they have so many fillers in the first place. She said she didn't know, but would transfer me to the pharmacist. I asked the pharmacist and she sounded like she had been asked what the weather would be like the next day - "oh, I don't know...yeah...I don't really know." I don't feel comfortable taking these. ## Yes, in most cases they have changed the fillers they...

Timing for lisinopril to take effect
28 Replies RSS Share
How long does it take for a low dose of lisinopril to start lowering blood pressure? ## According to drug information from Gold Standard Inc. 2011, Lisinopril starts working within an hour of taking it by mouth. The peak effect occurs at 6 hours after taking the pill. Other patients state that it should make a difference to your blood pressure in about 2 days time, based on their personal experience. Although I'm sure it may be somewhat different for everyone. I hope this helps to answer your question! ## I was told by an ER Doc and a my blood doctor that I could take lisinopril on an as needed basis have you ever known of this. My blood pressure gets high while menstruating and a few days after but the rest of the time my bp is normal ## I take lisinopril and amlodiprine for blood ...

Sudden Extreme Low Blood Pressure on Lisinopril
10 Replies RSS Share
My friend has been taking 20 mg lisinopril for about 3 years now. About 9 months ago during/after exercise, she began feeling really dizzy and faint to the point of passing out. She took her blood pressure and discovered it was extremely low each time it happened (e.g., 98/55, etc.). She stops taking the meds for 2-3 days, but feels faint and really awful for at least 2 to 3 days. I keep telling her to tell her doctor. How concerned should she be? ## Well, she should definitely see her doctor, because there are several possibilities of what could be causing the problem and she does need to find out which one it is, so they can remedy the situation. The first possibility is that diet and exercise are keeping her blood pressure low enough, that she no longer needs the medication. 2 to 3 d...
