hi wel come to HCM
read your prob. atenolol is b-blocker n lisinopril is ace inhibitor both drug have different mode of action so some one take both drug simultaneously. as you mentioned your BP which is seems low so you have to discuss your doc n stop one drug. one drug can maintain your BP.

Hi, doctor, I was taking lisinopril x 10 mg from Jan. 2013. I just started with high blood pressure at that time. My blood pressure could be controlled after taking medication, although sometimes, it was still high with systolic, but the diastolic was OK. Something like 140/65. During the summer, my blood pressure was fine. Only high in winter. However, the medication of lisinopril caused coughing for me, plus I got a cold this winter. That made me feel very bad. Now, my doctor recommended me to take the following (there are three opinions): Losartan x 25 mg, Atenolol x ? mg, Adalat GITS x 30 mg. What is the best one for me with my situation? I am an active woman, always go for exercises, 1 hr per day. Still working in elementary school, married, have one son, age 28. My high blood pressure is NOT SEVERE. Would you please give me some ideas? Thanks a lot.

I am a 75 year old man and have treated high blood pressure for 25 years with diazide and atenolol. The last 5 years the control of blood pressure has gotten too inconsistent. 165 over 115 one day and 105 over 70 three days later with no change in lifestyle. I need to change medicines. But to what??? Tried lisinopril and my blood pressure went to all time highs. Advice???

My husband had open heart surgery on October 31, 2017. In the last week his medication was changed from metoprolol to atenolol and his readings have been much higher since then. Today it was 172/98. He is taking 25 mg atenolol and 2.5 mg lisinopril a day. Is that enough to control his blood pressure or should we go to ER?

I am a 61 year old woman, and I am on blood pressure medication. 20 mgs of lisinopril, and 200 mgs a day of metoprolol. My blood pressure is high when I wake up in the morning always now. It runs 148/98, and remains high throughout the day. It only is normal a few times, but otherwise it stays high. Do you have any suggestions?

It is the weekend and am concerned about blood pressure. Last 3 readings: 140/88, 133/106, 137/105. Also have pounding headache in back of skull and top of head like a throbbing migraine. Saw my primary in May. All blood tests and EKG normal. Was taking Lisinopril HCTZ 20/12.5. My concern was swollen ankles so Dr. switched me to Lisinopril tabs 20mg & Lasix 40mg. I have not felt well since the switch. I have been treated for HBP about 15 years, am 56 and do smoke. Last 2 days have taken Lisinopril twice a day and 1/2 Lasix. Dr. told me I could do that as long as I monitor myself. Have not had numbers in 100s for a long time. Other medications are Aciphex 20mg, trazodone 100mg, sertraline 150mg and the lisinopril 20mg & lasix. I just do not feel well and need some advice. I will call my dr. on Monday to discuss. Thank you.
