Need more info: You are a "real trooper" to put up with this dermatological problem for so long. Lisinopril does have a history of causing adverse significant side effects. My best advice is to get a second opinion from a dermatologist. Your family physician may be able to help you in this regard.
Not common: Seems like any medication can cause just about anything! But statistically it's not something I run into commonly in daily practice...and I use this med a lot! Some patients feel "saggy" or run down a few hours after taking it, but usually pull out of this sensation later in the day. If this is happening then try taking the lisinopril at bedtime and see if this corrects the issue. Good luck!
I would like to lower my dosage of atenelol from 50 MG a day. I am experiencing extreme fatigue, ed, I also take hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) and lisinopril.
Talk to doc: This is not the place for you to ask this question. You really need to talk to your cardiologist about this combination of drugs- all of which can make you tired even by itself. If you need all these drugs just to keep your BP down, you need a good workup. If you also have very low potassium level, hyperaldosteronism needs be ruled out as well. Get a 2nd opinion if you must.

Emergency/urgency: B"sd short on details but you have low blood pressure and symptoms possibly as the result of decreased blood flow to the brain. You also are on two blood pressure medications. Do not take them and would seek immediate medical attention. There are many causes of low blood pressure besides BP medications so depending on the severity of your symptoms call 911 or be driven to ER - could be serious!See 1 more doctor answer

HBP and lisinopril: Lisinopril (l) is a drug of the ace-inhibitor (a) class of drugs. It is an excellent drug to control BP as well as reducing protein in the urine, as do all drugs in that class. There are other drugs in that class that are on the market. Ask your doctor to see if ramipril (r) is a good substitute for l in your case. As you can see from the image, r is quite effective in reducing cv complications.See 1 more doctor answer
