Mellie,
I'll repeat what I wrote 6/21
[QUOTE]Merck's version of lisinopril is PRINIVIL. They recommend a starting dosage of 10 mg. with a possible boost to 20 mg. and say that they HAVE tested dosages as high as 80 mg. and have not seen much of an increase in effectiveness with the higher doses like 40 or 80.
You can treat that as gospel evidence that neither you, nor anyone, needs even 80 mg. of lisinopril.
If your doctor doubts you, tell him to read his PDR under PRINIVAL. (They just LOVE being told to read their drug manual!:D:D)
