Discussions that mention lisinopril

High & Low Blood Pressure board


Thanks all :) I went to the Dr. a couple days ago and he is weaning me off the beta blocker (Innopran XL) over the next few weeks. After discussing the sexual issues I was having he said he was almost certain it was the beta blocker. After I'm completely off that he is going to try me on diltiazem in conjunction with the lisinopril I have already taking for a few years. So we'll see how that goes as I have never tried the CCB class before. My BP has still been good/unchanged even with the reduced "weaning" dose of the beta blocker the last few days, which makes me suspect it was overprescibed by a previous Dr. to begin with. Game of trial and error I guess...
hiya dan..glad you got your meds sorted out and off the beta-blocker and hopefully every thing will get back to normal for you !!!!!

just to say i was over prescribed bp meds too (have white coat hypertention) the best thing i ever done for myself was to buy my own bp machine ..and over the last year have managed to come off a water pill cant remember what there called ...lisinopril reduced from 40mgs to 20 mgs and atenolol from 100mgs to 50mgs ..and up to now bp remains good 113/133-61-72 ......hopefully you wont need any more meds ..good luck.
