Currently taking 20 mg lisinopril for high blood pressure. I am currently taking 20 mg of lisinopril for high blood pressure for about 4 years now. It has been fine up to a few weeks ago, now my BP is steady in the 140-150s / 90's I notice lisinopril com

Increasing . Increasing your Lisinopril may help your blood pressure, and you probably do not need a full office visit to make the change if you are doing well otherwise. But, there is a risk that the higher dose would negatively affect your kidney function so you should have labs checked 1-2 weeks after you make the change. I would recommend that you call your doctor's office to report the higher blood pressure. They should know that this is happening, and also that you are considering a higher dose. You could ask them if they would agree to the dose increase and provide you with a lab slip to get blood work after making the change. This should not cost you much, and may help you avoid a full office visit. Read more...
