Coreg and lisinopril

Common Questions and Answers about Coreg and lisinopril

coreg

I am on coreg 10 mg once a day, and coumadin. The doc wants me to add lisinopril 5 mg. Does it make sense to take both a beta blocker AND an ace inhibitor? I don't like all the meds! has anyone experienced fullness and bloating in the abdomen? I'm 51, enjoy being active jogging and biking....
Now that I am taking Coreg, should I take the Lisinopril at the same time, 1st Coreg in the afternoon, then the second one at bedtime as I did with the Bystolic? Or is Coreg more likely to have negative reaction when mixed with the nectar of life?
There is some misunderstanding...my fault. I take coreg with lisinopril to lower heart rate and lower blood pressure. Coreg can lower the HR, and as you know, I very slow heart rate can cause clots, and with MVR an individual is more vulnerable. My docotor wants my BP as low as possible without side effects such as passing out!. And I believe the lowest possible BP is generally the goal as you stated. But coreg also effects the heart rate, so that enters the equation for optimal dosage.
I have CHF and EF of 25%, currently on 80 mg of Coreg and 30 mg lisinopril along with lasixs. I asked my doctor the same question. I was informed that if I stopped the Coreg my heart would eventually return to the same EF of 25%. Not a wise thing to stop the medication. You are at risk for Sudden Death Syndrome. If your heart were to get into an irregular rythm you could die. Please advise him to talk to his doctor.
My husband is 55 years old and was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy 5 years ago (may have been alcoholic cardiomyopathy, he had stopped drinking for about a year after his diagnosis, but continued again until about 8 months ago -- he is in AA now and sober?) -- he has been on coreg and lisinopril for 5 years with very few side effects -- his cardiomyopathy has resoved and his heart is "healthy" back to normal size and function.
Lisinopril and Carvedilol are blood pressure medications (lisinopril is an ACE inhibitor, Carvedilol is a beta blocker) and should not have any effect on your lipid profile. Both are important medications for those who have suffered a heart attack and undergone stenting. In addition to these medications, you should be on some sort of lipid medication (a "statin" such as atorvastatin, pravastatin, rosuvasatin, lovastatin, etc).
I was also very active and they told me that doing arobic exercise was the cause of many young seemingly healthy adults cardiomyopathy because the wall thicken due to something called LVH in short hypertrophy. So no I just take Coreg, Lasix and a few vitamins and I feel ok except for being sleepy. So ask about stopping the lisinopril, it may help you feel better.
My electrophysiolgist/cardiologist prescribed Coreg and Lisinopril for my condition. I have episodes of ventricular tachycardia, apparently brought on by a focal wall abnormality in my left ventricle. I also have atrial fibrillation. I have an ICD as well. When I mention to other doctors that I take these medications, they insist I must have high blood pressure. I don't have high blood pressure and never have.
His heart function was below 25% Dr raised his dose of Coreg to the max and now he is having issues sexually, unable to get an erection. He wants to try a sample of Viagara but I am nervous. Any one out there going thru/gone thru this? Before the increase in Coreg he was sexually functional. Heart function is currently about 30% he is 50 years old, a nonsmoker does not drink and is active. He works a physically demanding job with lots of stress.
Hello marching on, Coreg is primarily a heart failure and post MI treatment. It is true that it will treat high blood pressure. If you had a strong family history of cardiomyopathy, I think coreg is a great medication. I usually start my patients on hydrochlorithiazide (a diuretic) and as a second agent I use a once a day ace inhibitor like lisinopril. The data supports using diuretics over beta blockers and hydrocholrithaizide costs about $12 per month compared to coreg (very expensive).
I was started on 3.125 mg 2x/d 4 months ago. also lisinopril and effient and lipitor. all due to an MI and stent in RCA. Dr took me off lisinopril due to dry cough about 6 weeks ago and upped coreg to 6.25 mg. cough resolved but I have been having early morning rapid heart beat (wakes me up) in recent weeks and my tinnitus has become much worse. My upper back pain which started while on drugs is also worse since the dosage went up.
50 mg is all I can do, but I also take Lisinopril and also I think Ranexa maximizes the effect of Coreg and minimizes my angina.
I would like to have kids but I am so scared that I may have a child with birth defects because of the medication I take. I take Coreg, Furosemide And Lisinopril. I am so afraid that the medication I take may cause a birth defect if I have a child. Does anyone anything about these medications and what they might do or not do, when trying to have children. Is there anything I need to do or be aware of. Thanks in advance.
I got sick a few years ago and it weakened my heart. I take Coreg(Carvedilol) and Lisinopril. I still want children very badly and was told that basically, there were meds that I can take instead of Lisinopril, but I would have to stop taking the Coreg. Are there any alternatives to Coreg?
So, I can tell you that the likelihood that Coreg is energy draining and Lisinopril is probably not, is high. This is just from my experience. You can beat this cardiomyopathy for sure! It happens all of the time.
Im taking 20 mg of Lisinopril twice a day along with 20 mg of coreg cr once a day and its killed my erection what can i do will levitra help?
I got sick a few years ago and it wekened my heart. I take Coreg(Carvedilol) and Lisinopril. I still want children very badly and was told that basically, there were meds that I can take instead of Lisinopril, but I would have to stop taking Coreg. Of course, I would just have to see how I would do without Coreg... Are there any alternatives to Coreg?
Here are my current dosages Coreg 25mg x2 daily Lisinopril 20mg x2 daily Spiral Lactone 25 mg day Amiodarone 200mg day Coumadin 5mg day Anything in there that would make me excessively tired?
Both lisinopril and Coreg are pretty strong drugs. You are taking very doses, but they certainly can be the cause of a lot of side effects. The good news is your body generally can adapt, and the drugs can remodel the heart... at least they did for me. I eventually was taking 10mg of lisinopril and 50 mg of Coreg. Headaches are definitely associated with drugs like Isosorbide (Imdur), angina meds like Ranexa and of course Nitro pills, especially if combined with alcohol.
Lisinopril and Metoprolol when I left the hospital, now Lisinopril and carvedilol (coreg). seems like a relatively common combination.
Just so you know, on the maximal amount of Coreg and Lisinopril that your heart rate and blood pressure can handle, the heart muscle can get stronger and we can see the EF improve!!! I think you may have 15 years left to your heart but you need to be very careful and take all of your medications (never stop plavix again with all of the stents you have) as prescribed and continue exercising at least 30 min 3-4x per week.
I was taking 25 mg Coreg 2x/day and 12.5 Lisinopril /day. I've been at that dose for about 6 weeks after titrating up since November. Recently I did a lot of outside work and got really run down. It's been 10 days and my BP has been really low (84/50) and I'm dizzy, tired, light headed. Normal BP for me is in the 90s. Local cardio recommended decreasing the Lisinopril to 7.5/day which I did Fri and feel a little better. Kidney and Liver blood work is normal.
He has never had any syptoms but because echocardiogram showed midly dilated left ventricle and EF dropped to 40% before ablation, he was treated with coreg and lisinopril. He had normal stress test.His EF improved to 53% 1 year after ablation (November 2008). How he had another holter showing 500+ PVCs and 8 runs of nonsustained VT (up to 8 beats). I am very concerned about this finding. He is to have another MRA and echocardiogram done. What is the prognosis in his case? How many year ?
He tried Lisinopril while I was in the hospital however the combo of HCTZ and Coreg and the Ace inhib was causing me to feel dizzy and ill. Now it has been 8 months after my hospitalization and they are trying Lisinopril again. I am up to 5mg and my BP is 90/60 , I feel a little off balance. They want me on at least 10mg, 20 is better but with a PB of 80/60 I doubt I will be able to handle the low BP . I normal BP is 110/75 I have no DM. No hyperlipidemia and not HTN.
Norvask did a good job, but caused terrible adeema in my feet and legs, adding roughly another 25 lbs. I am currently on Lisidepril 40 mg., Coreg and Hydrazaline. Since staring the Lisidepril my creatinine levels have risen to just over 2.
They just kept adding more and more meds until I fell over pulseless. Now I'm on coreg, flecainide, diltiazem, and lisinopril. I never have had high blood pressures and all these sometimes about tip me right over. If I don't take them though, my rate runs away. The ablations were only marginally successful. A pacemaker now prevents me from too slow side effects of the meds, but I have learned that hypotension can still be a problem.
He is on coreg and lisinopril. 1. Is cardiomyopathy caused by PVCs ? 2. I cannot find any literature on these types of PVC (only RVOT type or ARVD). Have you had any cases where only one focus was found in other areas of right ventricle? What was the diagnosis? 3. Could this still be ARVD despite two negative MRIs? 4. Would you expect EF to improve, decrease or remain stable in the future? We were told that often in cardiomyopathy EF will fluctuate. 5.
The medication you are receiving lowers the afterload by decreasing the resistance the heart pumps against. My medication is lisinopril (ACE inhibitor) and coreg (beta blocker). My cariologist wants my blood pressure less than 120/80, and as low as possible without side effects. The coreg with lisinopril does dilate the vessels and maintains heart rate stability, and if there is a side effect of lightheadedness, etc. the doctor would adjust or find the medication that is right for you.
I did have a heart cath which showed a n occulsion in the distal RCA which was new from the time i had surgery about four years ago. I am on coreg 25 mg, lisinopril and diuretics etc. I am in normal range for my thyroid.
I joined this group because I want to feel better. I am currently on Coreg, Lisinopril, Spironolactone and Lasix and I really do not see much relief! I also was recently diagnosed with sleep apnea and restless leg syndrome, and getting a Cpap machine for this. I am exercising regularly and making an effort to eat better. I have also cut out almost all caffeine. Still getting pvc's but i don't notice them as much!!
