Re: Lisinopril overdose possible?

Why did you take 26 20mg lisinopril? Were you trying to harm yourself?
If you have a blood pressure machine at home, take it, and then call the poison control center at 1-800-222-1222. If you were trying to harm yourself you should go to the ER instead so you can get proper care both mentally and physically.

Re: Lisinopril overdose possible?

Looks like you lucked out. The book I have lists the symptoms of a lisinopril OD as dizziness, confusion and faintness so it obviously isn't that much of a threat as a drug.

But I think you need to get some help if you are OD'ing on BP drugs and Dayquil. Time to get some professional help? Pretty common these days to get some kind of help working through whatever. Worth the effort. Beats taking an OD of lisinopril and Dayquil.
