For the past year I've been on lisinopril 5 mg. I've also undertaken an exercise program and mostly (not completely) stopped drinking alcohol
. At my recent visit, noting no improvement, the cardiologist raised the dose of lisinopril to 10 mg, and also put me on lipitor 10 mg. In a month, she wants me to start taking a beta-blocker (cora-something, I think). I am asymptomatic and feel fine.
My question is, does this seem like an appropriate course of treatment?
