Dosing of BP meds: If you were my patient, I would use maximum doses of one BP medication and then go to another if the patient's BP was not controlled. You are less than maximum doses of both metropolol and lisiniopril-hctz (lh) 20/12.5. Ask your physician if, your BP is not controlled, you can go to lh 40/25 to see if your BP can be controlled on that dose and stop the metropolol. Your 25 mg dose is quite low. ...Read more

I ran out of lisinopril 40mg. Can I take 2 lisinopril hctz (hydrochlorothiazide) 10-12.5mg?

There may be a reason why your doctor does not want you to take the combination pill, as HCTZ (hydrochlorothiazide) is a diuretic and does different things to your body besides control your pressure.

Is it just as fine to take lisinopril/hctz versus taking lisinopril and amlodipine in a patient with a TIA with no recurrence in 9 months.

Choice of drugs: The answer to your question depends on how well controlled your blood pressure is on the lisinopril/hctz as opposed to it on amolodipine. The lower your blood pressure, without symptoms of hypotension, the less risk you have for strokes, heart attacks and renal failure in the future. Ask the physician (p) who wrote your prescriptions for advice, as your p knows your history better. Good luck. ...Read more
