Chill!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!: Chills are one thing and if you are chilling you may want to see your doctor. Regarding the blood pressure, you may want to "chill" out! unless you have a very serious cardiovascular issue, don't be so vigilant on the checking of the bp. Are you having symptoms? Ha, weakness, numbness or tingling? Check your BP 1-2 times a day or 1-2 times a week and record and discuss with pcp. ...Read more

I started taking lisinopril march 12, 2012, I also take Norvasc (amlodipine) for blood pressure. I started seeing floaters, could the lisinopril be causing this?

I started taking lisinopril march 12, 2012, I also take Norvasc (amlodipine) for blood pressure.  I started seeing floaters, could the lisinopril be causing this?

Unlikely: If your blood pressure drops too much after taking both Lisinopril and norvasc, (amlodipine) it is possible to see 'floaters' as consequence. Check your blood pressure at the time when you see the 'floaters' and if it's not low, look for another cause - see an ophthalmologist. ...Read more

I have high blood pressure.Is prinivil (lisinopril) good to take?

A good med, but not: Prinivil (lisinopril) is indeed and excellent BP med, especially for diabetic patients, but it is not for everyone.

What vitamins can I take while on blood pressure medication lisinopril?

Depends: It depends on what vitamins you are referring to, specifically. In general, a multivitamin is fine.

Good evening. My average blood pressure  24 hr reading was 169/99
 I took 2  Lisinopril 10mg  . Blood pressure now dropped to 114/71 in 36hrs  ????

Confer with doc: I am very concerned that your 24 hr reading was so high but it's good that it came down to 114/77. However, my biggest question is where is your prescribing provider in all of this?? He or she needs to be informed of how high your BP was and I hope he/she was involved in the decision of you taking 2 lisinopril. It's dangerous for you to make those decisions on your own. Please see your doc!! ...Read more
