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 have been noticing tiny bubbles in my urine for the past couple of weeks. During this time, I ran out of my blood pressure meds and went about 8 days before getting the refill. During that time I gained about 8 lbs water weight. My hands and feet were swelling and also in the am my eyes were very puffy. At the end of the day I really had no ankles due to the swelling there. I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, however it does not explain my blood work which showed the blood antigens were high and also the inflamation. At first they thought I had Lupus, but not enough symptoms to confirm, so I was told that I do not have lupus but I do have fibromyalgia. Since then I have noticed on a couple of occations that I have had ranauds symptoms in my toes. I have also noticed a very faint redness across my nose and in my cheek area under my eyes, but no redness around my eyes (I kinda look like a racoon with white eyes). I am currently taking Lyrica and Cymbalta along with my Lisinopril/Hctz. I guess my question is could this new symptom with the bubbles in the urine be an indicator that I do have Lupus?

My daughter was in the hospital this week with blood pressure 200/148. she was there for two days and they sent her home with 148/98. She was taking 10 mg lisinopril and said to take two. She has monitored her blood pressure and the lower number keeps going up. It is now 148/119. She has no chest pains, shortness of breath, etc. They said the high pressure was due to a combination of meds particularly with phenylephrine. She also takes Keppra and Flonaise.
Does she need to go to emergency or can she wait to see if her blood pressure stablizes. thank you.
