Can lisinopril kill you

Common Questions and Answers about Can lisinopril kill you


Avatar n tn Hi, to begin with there are no known interactions between Coreg and Lisinopril, so you can take them together. A twice daily dosage is best taken 12 hrs apart. If you are taking the extended release Coreg CR, avoid drinking alcohol within 2 hours before or after taking extended-release carvedilol (Coreg CR). Alcohol may cause the carvedilol in Coreg CR to be released too quickly into the body. So, while taking Coreg, its best to avoid alcohol 2 hrs before and 2 hrs after taking the medication.
1432927 tn?1283550304 Its a no brainer procedure and a cure not a treatment and for gosh sake don't even think about stopping the beta blockers until the doc gives you the course of weaning off of them...if you stop them abruptly you can get something called re bound where the tach comes onto you X3 and is super to the doc for more permanent options is my suggestion....
Avatar m tn tests have only been in use for less than a decade, and some doctors are resistant to using them, preferring to do things the way they have always been done. You can either run a Free T4 and Free T3, or you can run four older tests designed to almost show as clear a picture after some educated guessing is done by the doctor. Free T3 is run less often than Free T4 for several reasons. It costs more. It takes longer to get the results back. It often shows the same result as the Free T4.
Avatar n tn midyrk, You really sound like you have an autonomic dysfuctional syndrome. Unfortunately in this case a pacemaker will most likely not help. The only thing a pacemaker will do is increase your heart rate. Before considering a pacemaker, you really would need to rigourously document that your symptoms are from a decrease in heart rate and not from alterations in your blood pressure form changes in the tone of your vessels. Not easy to do.
390388 tn?1279639813 Trying to get used to lisinopril and a slow HR after having it high for some time. I switched to taking it in the AM along with my Triamterene/HCTZ, and Metoprolol instead of which it was dropping my HR into the low 60's. I'm just so wiped out feeling anymore. I hope my body adjust soon...... And realllllly hope they can also figure out why I'm in so much pain all the time. Mainly with my back; but, my stomach and all over body pains too. I feel like a real mess anymore.
Avatar m tn ive had a eco cardio gram, a stress test they wanted to do line in my legg and squirt die into my heart but I didn't do it I had hurt my back afterwards and had a ct done of my chest using that they were able to see that I didn't have any blocked arties that's how they said I had no blockages. but did show minor calcium on my leaflets which they say is normal and say my heart is weak and also my left ventricle is larger than normal.
Avatar m tn But I did it way back in 1996, its so easy at the end of the day if you want to, but you need to get your mind around it first, so ok how?
Avatar n tn Sounds like it could be bipolar. You need a counselor now. The sooner you are dx the sooner you can begin to lead a normal life. Been there, done that, got the meds =) so I understand this. Good luck.
Avatar n tn Once you are on the highest dose of Coreg that you will tolerate, you doctor will likely increase your lisinopril next to the maximum dose you can tolerate. Once you are on maximal medical management with lisinipril (class of medication called : ace inhibitor or ACEI) and Coreg, and if you are stil having significant symptoms, it may be appropriate to add spironolactone (aldactone). This medications is additive to the ACEI, working in the same mechanistic pathway but further down the chain.
Avatar m tn If you think your grandmother is retaining a lot of fluid then she needs medication to get it out of her system. Lasix works well for me, at 120 mg/day. She may need a breathing treatment to clear her lungs first, though, depending on how much fluid buildup she has. They can check that with a simple xray of her chest. I've been rushed to the ER twice with fluid build up in my lungs, the chest xray is no big deal, and the breathing treatment is an easy fix.....
Avatar n tn Hey all, just thought I'd let you in on a little secret that may make you really excited. I've had heart palpatations for about 4 years now and they would come on arounbd the 4th of each month and be so strong that I'd get really dizzy, almost pass out, and really scared. They would last for 12 hours each time... trust me when I say they were bad!
Avatar n tn Hello there. I can be of no help, but wanted you to know that I will be thinking of you and praying for you. There are a lot of people on this board who have a lot of first hand knowledge and great Drs. someone will come along to help you and answer your questions.
Avatar n tn Your son needs help and if he is harboring a silent death wish he will probably accomplish that on the road he is taking. HBPs as you describe can cause Cardiomyopathies in the heart which destroys the heart, his kidneys can be destroyed due to HBP and believe on a dialysis machine 3x a week is NOT living. He could have a stroke and if that doesn't kill him, because he is of male gender, he will not fair as well in his recovery.
1167342 tn?1265468084 Stress can cause vasoconstriction. In extreme cases it can kill you (the proverbial healthy person who receives dreadful shocking news then keels over dead. The person didn't have CAD, just a sudden fatal stress-related constriction of the coronary arteries). In the same way, you don't *necessarily* have CAD with your arm pain. But then again, maybe you do.
Avatar f tn We can never kill it but by controlling it you can prevent new stone formation. As far as diet,for most of us stones are cause mainly by the defect in the collecting system and some metabolic issues. Other then avoiding taking high doses or mulitvitamins etc. diet does not do much for us. NOw I have read that taking magnesium and b6 can really help too.
Avatar n tn Next time you see your doctor ask him/her to have your potassium checked. Low Postassium also can cause PVC's. In my case its always nerves and fatigue. I had them every other beat for weeks at the time, day and night. I barely slept out of fear they'd kill me until a Cardiologist set me straight and told me the more I worry the longer they will stay and the more frequent they will get i.e. every other beat. I know of the nightmare these PVC's can cause.
980510 tn?1282014546 Oh and i want you to know i do NOT feel like iam going to kill myself. but anyway i just thought if iam going through this maybe someone else is too.
Avatar m tn he wants me to take atenolol,lisinopril,lipitor and coreg. that sounds awful. i will not get surgery so i guess i will have to take pills. but i am wondering,has anyone here seen my disease at such a young age??
326184 tn?1348812708 A good thyroid doctor will treat a hypo patient clinically by testing and adjusting Free T3 and Free T4 as necessary to relieve symptoms, without being constrained by resultant TSH levels. You can get some good insight into clinical treatment from this letter written by a good thyroid doctor for patients that he sometimes consults with after initial tests and evaluation. The letter is then sent to the participating doctor of the patient to help guide treatment.
Avatar f tn That is an amazing story. Had you had problems before you go pregnant? So now you are still experiencing these bouts even after the children were born? I cannot believe that cannot figure out what is causing this to happen. Wow that is a FAST RATE.Ii WILL KEEP YOU IN MY PRAYERS FOR GODS HEALING. KEEP IN TOUCH AND LET ME KNOW HOW YOU ARE DOING.
Avatar n tn If you get outside of this zone, you can get false triggers. I also found that a few of the retail store security checkpoints cause mine to trigger. It clearly beeped as I walk thru the coil field of the checkpoint. You must also have a good connection between the pad and your skin. Adhesive from the previous day must be completely removed. After a week of use, I was able to roll little adhesive balls off my skin even though it looked completely clean.
Avatar n tn Thank you for reply. I will check out getting a monitor since I have never worn one before. I have always thought it strange how they can just "pop up". Even though I have learned to deal with them, there are times when they get bad enough to freak me out again. Then the next thing you know, after about 2 weeks they just dissapear again for another month or two.
Avatar n tn It is a mouthwash type thing made by Colgate that you can find probably in any drugstore. I always buy it in Walmart. Peroxyl seemed to be the trick! The first day of this weird tongue pain/burning is the least bad as you probably know so that is when I would notice it was coming back and would use the Peroxyl. It stings a lot but relieves it pretty much instantly AND even stops it from progressing!!!! No more week long bouts of burning pain for my tongue anymore!
Avatar m tn Also, I have changed my diet up as well. There is a list of foods you can find it easily on the internet, that are considered anti-inflammatory foods.(type it in on google, it gives you several good lists to start with) Ex, green beans, brocolli, tomatos, sweet potatos, carrots, certain types of fish, things of that nature.(I eat lots of tomatos) If I stick to that plan pretty much, it also helps. When I deviate too much,(my problem is chips!) my pain seems to start creeping back in.
687614 tn?1244201579 Try the 1/2 or ask about switching meds to see if something else impacts you less. I'm glad you are approaching this from both directions. Finding the middle ground can often be very difficult. I am certainly still looking for the elusive middle ground.
Avatar n tn Atenolol keeps them under control and relatively painless.
555738 tn?1220406625 Thank you all for sharing your stories with me. It helps SOOOOO much to hear that other people live with this everyday, and some actually have it worse! I went to the doctor today and he basically told me that my heart is in tip top shape and I have to stop worrying about this. I actually got into a little argument with him when he tried to tell me that the 2 runs of v-tach that were caught on the monitor were just dumb luck!!
Avatar n tn It would appear that your dad has gone where you may not reach him i am surprised that he is alive they say that one drinks unttil he finds something to take its place it means that he thinks life is not worh much right now i have been around them worked with them andif you ask why they drink most will invent a reason some say i dont know If your dad cannot help himself you will have to do it and it is hard there are state hosps that are free but again it will be hard because a true alcoholic wi
343765 tn?1202526132 When you are on ANY prescription medication, ask the Pharmacist if the supplements you are taking (if any) may cause problems. You may be surprised what can happen between a prescription drug and a Mega Vitamin or other supplement.
Avatar n tn If you dont have someone to pray with find a good Christain church. sometimes the only way I can feel ok with these extra beats happening to me,is to really just trust God that he is there with me no matter how many extra beats may come my way.
