Common Questions and Answers about Diltiazem and lisinopril

tiazac

I have always taken the Lisinopril and aspirin in the morning and the Lovastatin and Diltiazem together at night. I am embarrassed to say, I recently noticed that the bottle of Diltiazem says to take in the morning and Lisinopril states to take at night….Well, I decided to finally follow the instructions and that did not work out one bit. When I took the Diltiazem in the morning, I felt like garbage all day long.
I am currently taking Lisinopril 20mg in the 7:30AM and Diltiazem 120mg/24 in the 4:30PM. My doctor asked me to take both medications in AM so that it works all day. I thought Diltiazem is a slow-releasing 24hours drug. As long as I continue to take it at the same time each day, I will have it in my bloodstream continuously. Does it matter when to take it?
Plavix, Asprin, Pantoprazole, Simvastatin, Lisinopril, Diltiazem and Pilocarpine. Also take Vitamin C, multivitamin, Co-q 10, fish oil, saw palmetto and milk thistle. I am wondering- do you take any "break" from vitamins? Lets say once a week, a month...? Or you take them all the time with no breaks? There is a very little data about this. Thank you in advance for your answer .
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.

PH Clinc increased my 120mg diltiazem to 240mg daily, with suggestion of increase to 360 mg, and advised me 'PH does not appear to be a feature of my symptoms or current situation'. Two weeks following my visit, new PHP prescribed Lisinopril 2.5mg AM, diltiazem 120mg PM. I track my blood pressure as advised; in the range of 145/80 pulse 75. I weigh 134lbs, 5'5", don't smoke/drink, am 60. Exercise around the house and use stat. bike. Sometimes my BP reaches 180/95 for no reason.
Taking Diltiazem, Lisinopril, Aspirin and Ranitidine as well. Have been having constant stomach and chest pains and the doctors are not able to find the cause- at least they don’t think it is a cardiac one./the chest pains/ My gastroenterologist suggested I stop taking Ranitidine and switch to Pantroprazole. I have read a lot about the interaction between Plavix and PPI’s but he thinks only Omeprazole have more effect on Plavix, not Pantoprazole.
Or, call your pharmacist with a list of your meds (including OTC) and ask about negative interactions. You should always ask about adding and/or stopping any medications. There can be some unusual side effects, or none at all.
Be careful taking diltiazem (lisinopril). I was on it for medium high blood pressure for 5 years and finally stopped taking it because it had caused deep depression, not to feelings of suicide though. It seemed to build up, so be on the lookout for feelings of not caring and hopelessness. Now I'm on Verapamil and am doing OK except for the ankle swelling. Tried another CB'er (Cartia XT or Cardizem) and had the same edema effect.
Hello, I am currently on two kinds of blood pressure medicine. Lisinopril & Diltiazem. Recently I started taking Olive Leaf Extract two times a day for the reputed health benefits it offers. Come to find out this herb is also an antihypertensive. Snapshot guess as to whether this is ok?
I have lisinopril and diltiazem. I know the beta blockers and, I believe, the hydrochlorothiazide can produce tiredness, as can clonazepam. I don't think citalopram has any effect on tiredness.
They had me taking metropolol 25mg BID on top of the Lisinopril, but had to discontinue due to abdominal cramping, diarrea and major depressive mood swing, confusion and just a general feeling of being in a fog. Has body become so used to the Lisinopril that it's just not working any more? They want me to keep heart rate lower, but it's just not working!
diltiazem 120mg, lipitor 10mg, lisinopril 25mg and
Lisinopril 10mg Diltiazem XL 120mg Aspirin 75mg GTN spray Trazodone 150mg ) depression Fluanxol 1mg ) I eat a healthy diet, am losing weight and have recently started at the gym. My GP says this is OK ‘If I am sensible.’ On Tuesday I really overdid things, and after Wednesday’s scare, plus the fact that I feel so shattered, I’m having a break. Am I being neurotic in thinking that my scan was a false negative and that I do have ischaemic heart disease.
As to the fatigue... are you ONLY on flecaininde? I get very fatigues too, BUT I am also on diltiazem, coreg, and lisinopril. I can't separate them to know what goes with what.

My BP remained between 130/84 and 145/95 and I was on lisinopril - increased to 20mg and diltiazem 120mg. In 2011 I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. I eat a healthy diet, although overweight (but losing), and it is well-controlled on Metformin.
I had a nuclear medicine perfusion test and it showd my LVEF to be 46% but my echocardiogram showd it to be 60%. A the test time I was on 240 mg diltiazem and 40 mg Lisinopril daily. I do have a history of bad hypertension. I do suffer from occasional PVC and PAC's. Any opinion? Thanks.
Hello, For the past few years it seems as if I have been running off to the ER for chest related pains. Burning feeling / light cramping over the left breast. (The discomfort does not seem to radiate anywhere else) Seems to be brought on when I am really upset or engage in a sudden running sprint or even sometimes after sexual activity.
Adizem XL 120mg daily (diltiazem) Lisinopril 20mg daily Propranolol 40mg twice daily (added yesterday) Bezafibrate 400mg daily Metformin 500mg twice daily Isosorbide mononitrate 10mg daily, increasing to twice daily (from 5 days) GTN spray as required My GP was unsure whether to refer me again today, but we agreed to see how things go with the added medication and review in a month, or earlier if there is no improvement. Does this seem reasonable?
Now I take Diltiazem (also a CCB) and it's not nearly so bad. The first couple weeks I had some dizziness and whopper headaches. Now I'm left with a bit of brain fog and fatigue; I don't have the pep I had before but it does help the tachycardia and chest pain. If the Coreg is too much for you in terms of side effects, see if your doctor would be willing to try something else. 32K PVC's a day is a bit much, huh? Perhaps someone else has had a good experience with a med for PVC's.

my medication is diltiazem, lisinopril, maxide and an aspirin. I don't and have never smoked. I exercise. But, I still have breathing problems and wonder if this is due to some of the medication, or whether there is some problem with my lungs. Thank you.
240 mg of diltiazem once day, and lisinopril 40 mg a day.. I'm wondering if I need to see a Gastro Dr..and a Heart dr? thanks..
5 2 x/day, lisinopril 5 mg 1/day and coumadin 5 mg 1 x/day; unable to tolerate lisinopril, switched to divan 160 1 x/day. Carvedilol increased to 25 mg 2 x/day. Ejection factor 30. I feel worse now than I did when I left the emergency and was placed on diltizem; heart rate is even higher (today 175/129 - pulse 50) similar in my local physician's office 2 days ago. I have worse symptoms since I started taking drugs.
I've been keeping both eyes on it for 20 frigging years. Recently I was taking Hytrin, Atenolol, Clonodine, Lisinopril and HCTZ twice daily. Now I'm on 120m Diltiazem 3x, .1 Clonidine 2x and .2 Clonidine at bedtime. BP is still high. More Clonidine (i.5-2) during the day will drop it to120/80 or below, but it drops my heartbeat to 40-50 an dI'll fall asleep. My heartrate otherwise is 56-62. I'm at the point where I really don't care much anymore.
An medication reaction can be delayed, however in most is usually occurs early when taking a medicine. Diltiazem and norvasc can bot be used for vasospasm. Generally it should pass rapidly with discontinuation of the agent. If it doesnt, it may be related to something else. The medicines are different enough that they shouldnt react. Also, I would make sure something else isnt going on.

I'm 61, female, a non-smoker, blood sugar slightly raised but not diabetic, on treatment for hypertension and raised cholesterol and with an almost 100% incidence of coronary artery disease on Dad's side, so I've always known I was likely to get it. An echo showed slight left ventricular hypertrophy from the hypertension. I'm on lisinopril and diltiazem. I try to eat healthily and am increasing my exercise.
