I feel bloated, full and have no appetite today. Is it okay to take Tums when I also take Metoprolol and Lisinipril for high blood pressure?

I feel bloated, full and have no appetite today. Is it okay to take Tums when I also take Metoprolol and Lisinipril for high blood pressure?

TUMS: Hi. I'm confused. You state that you're pregnant. ACE inhibitors shouldn't be used in pregnancy; metoprolol may be OK but is not preferred. TUMS is OK in non-pregnancy taken with lisinopril and metoprolol. However, TUMS is for treating stomach acid or providing calcium. Bloating, satiety, and no appetite don't sound all that suspicious for an acid problem. Please talk with your OB about meds. ...Read more

I take 10 mg of lisinopril daily. Wondering how dangerous it is if I forget to take it every once and a while?

I take 10 mg of lisinopril daily. Wondering how dangerous it is if I forget to take it every once and a while?

Not detrimental: It takes a tremendous amount of dedication to stay on a medical regimen every day of your life! it is important that med be taken as prescribed, but we all forget here and there. For lisinopril, it is not detrimental if you missed a dose especially if you have been taking it regularly (you have a good, steady level of it in your body already) and that your pressure is under good control. Good luck. ...Read more

I've been coughing constantly since stopping lisinopril. What can I do ?

Cetrizine helps: Since this cough is due to lisinopril, it will go away in few days. But if you can't tolerate it you can try antihistamines like Benadryl or cetrizine. If the cough persists even after a week of stoppage of Lisinopril then you might need to see your doctor. ...Read more
