Hi,
You have to continue all medicines as with these medicines your BP is under control.
If you dis continue the medicines there are all chances of shouting your BP.
If your BP remains normal then after some time you may take advice of your doctor for dose alteration for lisinopril and lipitor.
Ok and bye.

HI, Have had afib for years. When it happens, my blood pressure soars near 200/111 with pulse of 150 and above. Lately, I have lower blood pressure 89/59 with pulse of 59 along with dizziness. I wonder how I can have both high blood pressure at times, and then have low blood pressure (more often low now). Normally I have 115/78 and pulse of 60. I don t need medication - just rest and heartbeat becomes normal soon. Thanks, Nadine

Dr. Oz, I know you're show is geared mostly towards women but I really am in dyer need of help. I'm a 22 year old male and I'm currently taking two 20mg instant release Adderalls a day. My blood pressure is normal on a daily basis, but high blood pressure and heart disease does run in my family. My concern is in regards to Erectile Disfunction. It is a real self confidence killer! My penis doesn't get fully erect when I'm about to have sex, its hard but not where it can stay up the air hard..excuse the reference. Also some other times it will get hard, but it will not stay that way for long amounts of time. Does anyone know why this could be? I also have trouble staying hard. For example if it slips out, there is a switch of positions,or the slightest distraction, it wont remain hard. I take adderall but don't notice a difference in this when I take it and when I don't. I exercise regularly (4-5x a week) and eat relatively healthy(for a college student). I am stressed a lot and i know that could be a cause of my problems. but does anyone have any ideas? Also is it to early for someone my age (22) to take pills such as viagra or cialis? What are the long term side effects?
