Discussions that mention potassium

High & Low Blood Pressure board

Sally, thanks for adding your comments. My Dr. never said anything about any bloodwork prior to taking lisinopril, although I just had a basic metabolic profile blood test done about a week ago, I'm wondering if that shows kidney function? All my Dr. told me is that I have slightly low potassium, which I pretty much always have. I think it was 3.3

Bethsheba, I will keep searching for more info and I will let you know if I find anything interesting regarding the ARB-back pain connection. I'm quite upset that I can't take them, my Dr. thinks they're such wonderful drugs.

I usually take my BP meds in the AM because I take singulair and zyrtec at night and I don't like to take so many things together. I'll have to make sure to try the lisinopril on the weekend when my husband and kids are around. I'm more concerned about it making my asthma worse, though.
