I accidentally took two 40mg lisinepril, what's going to happen?

I accidentally took two 40mg lisinepril, what's going to happen?

You'll be fine but:: The bad news: you are gong to die; the good news, not from this, maybe not for 70 years, but eventually ;)
All that will happen from this is that your blood pressure may get a bit lower than usual but 80 mg is actually a dose that is sometimes prescribed so it's safe; it is not clear 80 mg lowers BP more than 40mg so you may feel no different. If you feel faint from low BP (unlikely) lay down. ...Read more

Bp too low on lisinapril 10 reduced to 5 mg which did not control bp before. Bp still too low after 5 days. Why would bp not be going up?

BP 2 low: 64 F BP too low on lisionopril reduced still too low. Need to know other meds. The best way to lower BP when taking Lisino is to lower your salt intake. If so you will not need so much BP meds. Other ways that you may have lost salt would be vomiting, diarrhea, sweating. I specialize in blood pressure problems like this so recommend you consult with me. ...Read more
