Discussions that mention lisinopril

High & Low Blood Pressure board

I'm with you on disliking the way the meds make you feel -- especially the atenolol. Until about a month ago, I was taking 200 mg atenolol, 40 lisinopril, and 25 HCTZ and could only make my bp readings fairly acceptable. I walked around feeling soooo tired all the time.

I'm now taking exactly half of the above doses, and my readings have been great. I don't understand it, but I'm happy and feeling a lot better. My Dr. said that we'll just monitor the bp and hopefully won't have to up the dose.

I don't even know if it's possible, but I got to thinking that I might have been over-medicated and my body was trying to compensate in some way. I'm probably way off target, though.

Good luck with finding meds that leave you feeling better.
