Exp unusual fatigue with Amlodipene + Lisinopril or Metopro. Before Amlo + Tenormin (atenolol)? no fatigue feeling?? Why?

Medication: Why were you switched from the prior regimen? It appears that the culprit may be Lisinopril since you were on Amlodipine before also and did not have any symptoms. I would contact the physician who prescribed these meds and have them switched over.

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.

Will lisinopril cause lethargy?

Will lisinopril cause lethargy?

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!

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.

It depends on your: Prior dose of metoprolol. if you were raking 100 mg a day or more, you should be weaned off the metprolol so your heart rate does not speed up when you stop.

See provider: I am concerned that your cardiovascular disease may be getting worse, or that you may have asthma or COPD that requires more than one inhaler. Please see your healthcare provider.

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!

Taking 80mg lisinopril and 2.5 amliopine still BP 175/95. Suggestions?

Blood pressure: Blood pressure management often requires titration of multiple medications. Discuss with your doctor and follow the recommendations you receive. The amlodipine is still low dose and addition of another medication working in a different manner may also be considered.

Is lisinopril good for high bloodpressure?

Is lisinopril good for high bloodpressure?

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.
