Detailed Answer:
Hello Ma'am

After going through the medical details provided by you I would like to tell you that your medication needs to be changed a bit. You have to change Lisinopril with Amlodipine 5mg one tablet in the evening.

Along with this you need to follow healthy lifestyle routine which requires
1. Dietary modifications like low salt diet, no junk food, including fresh fruits and vegetables in daily diet

2. No smoking if you do.

3. Cut down coffee intake.

4. Start daily morning walks.

I hope this information will be helpful. Do discuss with your doctor personally before switching the medication.

Kind regards
Dr Bhanu partap
