Hello what are the side effects on taking lisinopril 40mg and metoprolol 25mg? I am supposed to start tomorrow but it seems a high dose.
All melds could potentially have side effects, concentrate in the good benefits of lowering the BP, and not on side effects. I would take the lisinopril in am and the metoprolol at night, so to prevent bottoming down on BP. If asthmatic, may cause wheezing, feeling tire and slow, a skin rash, but for the most part, these are well tolerated. Good Luck, chart your BP twice daily, while on these, Best
