| | Lisinopril 20mg
In addition to metropolol , I have been prescribed lisinopril 20mg once daily for high blood pressure. The lisinopril has been making me a bit dizzy because it has dropped my BP too low for my body. (I get home reading between 100/60 and even lower at its peak level) When it's time for another dose, my BP is around 125/70). I have started cutting back to 10mg daily (splicing the pill in half). Is there a weaning process to stop taking lisinopril? I have been on it for about 2 months.
P.S. When my BP is in the range of 130 or 135/70 or 80, I feel just fine. I believe this range is "normal" for my body. Some doctors are determined to have it "by the book" @ 120/80 which honestly is slightly low for my body.
I've heard you don't need to be weaned off ACE inhibitors, is this true?
