Which is better if salt sensitive and nursing home wont give low salt diet? HCTZ or lisinopril or both? Mild or erratic HTN for 5yr. Ischemic CVA. 92

Easy tips

Lisinopril
Avoid salty snacks, canned foods, processed meats and cold cuts such as bacon, and sausage . Also avoid fast food. Do not sprinkle salt over your food. In my opinion, this is adequate for keeping your sodium intake at a safe level.

I take lisinopril but still retaining fluid I thought it was to help me not do that?

Nope

Lisinopril is a key portion of a heart failure regimen, but does not directly influence fluid gain or loss. It has long term effects too complicated for a 400 char answer, but the short term effect is to alter the pressure physics in the body to enable your diuretic (usually furosemide/Lasix, or torsemide, bumetanide, Demadex, Bumex) to better eliminate fluids.

Lisinopril can help treat congestive heart failure (CHF). It is cardio-protective and can be used effectively with diuretics and a low sodium diet. Ask your doctor for more details on how it can work in certain patients.

the internet says i cant eat potassium rich foods on lisinopril 5mg?! thats like all the healthy food? How am I supposed to eat healthy?

Talk to MD

Lisinopril
Don't listen to everything you read on the internet! If your kidney function is normal, you can consume potassium risch foods safely. A normal kidney will excrete excess potassium you may consume. The fact is that most Western diet are deficient in potassium, consuming sodium in great excess of sodium.Feel free to eat the natural, healthy and potassium rich foods freely.www.whatscookingwithdoc.com

How can i help a patient that has had a blood pressure of 200/150 and was prescribed lisinopril? besides diet n exercise? A 55 yr old male weighing 250 also

Diet

Diet and exercise are a very large part of any high blood pressure management. Particularly a diet low in sodium (less than 2000mg) per day. Outside of that, helping this person make and keep regularly scheduled doctors appointments, obtaining a home blood pressure cuff and helping them learn how to use it (make sure to sit down and rest at least 5 minutes before taking the blood pressure), and keeping records of the blood pressures to bring into the appointment will help in the management.

84 yrs. stable cfh, afib, bph. take ccoreg, cardura, lisinopril, coumidin. Tylenol does not seem to help. Can I take Advil or Ibuprofen?

Talk to doc

Motrin
The combo at your age with HF, lisinopril and potential for lasix is not good. All non steroidal anti inflammatory meds cause sodium retention which could unbalance your HF. One dose is probably ok, but check with your doc first.

Lisinopril --- ?can it elevate creatinine levels?

Lisinopirl and creat

Creatinine
A strong association exists between acute increases in serum creatinine (C) of up to 30% that stabilize within the first 2 months of ACEI (A) therapy and long-term preservation of renal function. This relationship holds for persons with creatinine values of greater than >1.4 mg/dL. A's should be stopped if the increase in C is > 30%. A's used in patients with a renal artery stenosis give higher C.
