I have recently been diagnosed with high blood pressure and just woke with a heart rate of 120 should I be concerned ? I have been taking lisinopril for 3 days

I have recently been diagnosed with high blood pressure and just woke with a heart rate of 120 should I be concerned ? I have been taking lisinopril for 3 days

No.: A heart rate of 120 is not unusual or worrisome per se. It can be a normal response to various things, such as exercise, pain, fever or anxiety. If it resolves on its own, within a few minutes then you need not worry about it. However, if it persists for hours or if you are having symptoms such as trouble breathing or chest pain etc., then it should be evaluated. ...Read more

Just minimally: Lisinopril and related drugs (ace/arbs) minimally lower heart rate (just 2-3 points on average), more only if the potassium goes up excessively. Other BP meds that lower heart rate more include beta-blockers, clonidine, and sometimes Diltiazem verapamil. Rates of 60 and above usually are ok, . ...Read more

Cant find blood preesure meds to agree took toprol xl, cardizem , lisinpril  getting frustrated taking 5mg Norvasc but it cause heart rate to raise , ?

Agree with what?: Are you having drug interactions? What other side effects? Many people who can find no class of medication to treat their problem, often are not experiencing side effects of the medication, but anticipation of trouble as result of anxiety. Ace inhibitors (lisinopril) are very well tolerated, but if side effect, arb is good option. Norvasc (dhp-ccb) is also well tolerated, with few side effects. ...Read more

I started experiencing heart palpitations after switching from Atacand to Lisinopril. Does Lisinopril 20mg cause heart palpitations?

I started experiencing heart palpitations after switching from Atacand to Lisinopril. Does Lisinopril 20mg cause heart palpitations?

Usually not: Heart palpitations are not one of the "common" adverse reactions caused by Lisinopril, but that does not mean Lisinopril never causes this reaction. Different people can react to medications in different ways. I recommend you letting your doctor know about your side effect and switch you to another medication. ...Read more

Saw cardiologist who said no heart failure, BP stable. He said only take lisinopril 5, crestor. Is that good? I'm 90. My friends take lots of pills.

Saw cardiologist who said no heart failure, BP stable. He said only take lisinopril 5, crestor. Is that good? I'm 90. My friends take lots of pills.

That is very good: If you are 90 years old and only taking two pills that is excellent. Lisinopril is a great drug that lowers blood pressure, protects the kidney and may help prevent strokes. Crestor is also a great medication for lowering cholesterol. You need to have periodic blood tests when you are on those drugs but i'm sure your doctors are doing those. Live long & laugh much. ...Read more
