Bystolic and lisinopril

Common Questions and Answers about Bystolic and lisinopril


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.
Avatar n tn After several different trials, I am now taking 5 mg bystolic and no lisinopril and my body seems to have adjusted. While I am overweight, I did not gain any additional weight as others have mentioned. I am also not exhausted. I recently had blood work so we will see if it had some kind of effect on my cholesterol as others have had. I hope not. It was interesting to hear that someone else had the heavy legs because my doc seemed surprised that I had that as a side effect.
214864 tn?1229718839 I hope you find the info you want regarding Coreg and Bystolic and that you will share it with us once you figure it out. My doctor also started me on Coreg due to VT and he says it is also prophylactic for my focal cardiomyopathy. I'm curious, why do you say beta blockers shouldn't be prescribed for high BP? I don't take them for that, but know many who do. Thanks!
Avatar n tn I am dieting but I have read horror stories where bystolic has caused people to gain 40 pounds in 3 months or just unable to lose weight. I know people who had readings of 180/145 and only on 5mg of lisinopril. Why would my cardio prescribe such a high dose of a blood pressure med? I was on 20mg lisinopril with a diretic but had nasal congestion and facial flushing.
Avatar m tn I have been having a constant chest pounding and pain radiating all over my left and right breast area, all tests done proved negative for heart condition but the pain rather than decreasing, seem to be increasing in intensity. I am on LISINOPRIL-HCTZ 20-25MG and BYSTOLIC for HBP I am also on PRAVASTATIN for Cholesterol. I recently had to stop the Bystolic because my heart rate was low between 45-62.
Avatar m tn I have been using 10 mg of Lisinopril and 5 mg of Bystolic for about a month. I now find myself not being able to sleep and much anxiety. I wasn't this way before the meds. I stopped Lisinopril on Tuesday (Dr said OK) and Bystolic two days ago and anxiety even worse. Only way I can get to sleep is drink myself to relax and then I only sleep for two hours. Is this a case of the Lisinopril giving me anxiety when I used it and the Bystolic now because I am not?
Avatar m tn What is the proper training heart rate when taking bystolic Imdur ER and lisiniprol...
Avatar m tn I would like to know if an increase in my Bystolic and lisinopril will cause and increase in weight loss. My Cardiologist increased my byistolic too 10mg., and my lisinopril to 40mg. on the 1st of Febuary 2010, and I have lost a total of 11 pounds since being on them, my weight stayed steady prevous to that time.
424634 tn?1277861128 Couldn't be good.) He put me on Bystolic 5mg to get that heart rate down and scheduled me for a echocardiogram. So far, this medication is awesome. I never expected to feel so different. It's like having a governer put on my heart. I get out of bed and don't feel the heart racing to get up to speed, or up the stairs, no pounding. These were things that I've had for so long they were a part of me, normal. I assumed everyone experienced this.
Avatar m tn Drives me nuts. My dose is now adjusted from 40mg of lisinopril to 20mg and my hctz is cut in half to 12.5mg daily. But because I was skipping my bp meds due to the severe lightheadedness almost falling a few times. That it may have contributed to the left ventricular hypertrophy. I did a stress echo and although it showed a thick left ventricle, my exercise capacity was superior having gone 17 minutes on a bruce protocol on the treadmill. Right now, I dont know what to do really.
Avatar m tn My main question is how low can your heart rate get and still be safe? I'm afraid to take a beta block for my hypertension because my hr at night gets as low as 55 without them. I'm 24 years old I have hypertension, I'm active/normal weight I also have LVH from my hypertension. Would it be safe for me to take this beta blocker bystolic My doctor has prescribed me? He said it wouldn't lower it much but from the posts I've seen they do. Thoughts?
3167279 tn?1343956405 thank you for your answer i am on coreg and a low dose of bystolic as well as lisinopril. and nothing thus far has lowered it. I have now been referred to an ep but was just wondering if anyone else had similar issues? before i caught the virus i was very healthy. I am a 32 year old female with a 14 yr old daughter and 4 yr old son.
Avatar f tn However when I first started taking my medication Bystolic 5mg my blood pressure start to go low around 116/69 so my doctor changed me to Lisinopril 2.5mg. Now I started to see that my blood pressure is 144/73 its been like that few a weeks but then it will go back to 123/83 every once in a while. I am concerned because I have read that high systolic blood pressure is usually found in older adults.

Avatar n tn BP stays around 140/77-pulse around 60 but I feel chest pain two hours after taking and bp shoots up in the night off and on. Please help me with your comments and suggestions. Thanks.

Avatar m tn I am on bystolic,imdur er and losarton.. I had a six to eight week spell where my BP went up quite a bit..I noticed I had put on about 10 pounds and new I was under more stress than usual.. Lost the weight and got life under control and every thing BP wise went back to normal..
Avatar m tn I have 8 stent, 6 in the RCA and 2 in the obtuse marginal, I was 38 when I had my first heart attack, I am now 40. I'm constantly feeling chest pains could the medicine I'm on cause these pains?
Avatar f tn Mom is 87 years old and has high blood pressure (HBP) for many years, she is taking a few different medications to control her blood pressure. Her blood pressure has not really gotten better, but stable. But now, we noticed her bp is getting over 200 especially in the late afternoon or at night. Why? I am really worried. Doctor told her to take one additional Bystolic when the BP is too high. But this is not right.
Avatar m tn I have called my doctor numeroud times for the shortness of breath and to see if there is something I can switch to that would not have the same effects with the fatigue and shortness of breath, she assured me that the Bystolic does not exhibit those effects and it could not be the Bystolic doing this to me that the medication has no side effects that I need to be worried about. Yet online all of what I am feeling are stated as side effects of the medication.
1535860 tn?1293119257 I feel the PVCs and DD are related although there doesn't seem much evidence to suggest this. I have decided to start Flecainide 100 mg BID for the PVCs (after Bystolic, Inderal LA, and Verapimil did nothing for PVCs). The EP started me on Lisinopril 5 mg daily and I can increase that to 10 daily if SBP > 140. My biggest question is what are the chances of the grade I DD progressing? My cardio says "not much" but I'm not for sure what to make of that.
1131217 tn?1260294831 i landscape i wake up at 6 in the morning and dont get home till 6 pm...but once i am home and i cant stop and i clean my whole room, organize my closet, smoke a hundred cigarettes and sit on my computer reading how absolutely horrid all of these drugs are....i find myself completely strung out. i am like 10 steps behind my own self. i am doing things without even realize i am doing them...i feel like a robot machine. i feel like i am going a million miles an hour.
Avatar n tn Two days later at work I got severely dizzy and nauseous and had to leave work and got in trouble for it. I tried to talk to my cardiologist but got his nurse instead. She told me the Dr. said I was fine it is not my heart and coming off the meds would bring my bp up a little but the dizziness must be from something else. To go see my family Dr. because their is a lot of colds and flue going around. I did not feel like I had a cold or flue and still do not. I saw my family Dr.
343006 tn?1314450071 I tryed last month bystolic and verapamil per doctors orders - and couldnt handle that. got chest pains and palpations. stopped the bystolic and symptoms went away .. I called my new cardio Doctor and tell the truth - he said there isnt much he can do.. ? is there anyone out there ,that can help me ?? maybe with somekind of natural med or even something I can take to stop the nightmares and no sleep and calm my system down so no internal jitters at night.. and rapid heart beats..
Avatar f tn I am taking 15 mg. Lisinopril and very little Bystolic about 1.5 mg. for my high blood pressure. This all started in Jan of this year. What are the measures that I can take to help this condition? I am tired all of the time and the tiredness is very difficult to deal with.
Avatar n tn I still would get chest pains and tingles and occasional shortness of breath, even after losing 15 lbs in a month and taking medicine every day (Plavix, Bystolic, Crestor, Asprin, Lisinopril). I also get a feeling on occasion like my insides are trembling or being shocked. 2-3 times a week it is to a point where it keeps me up several hours at night. I even have Zanax which i take as needed to cover the case where it is anxiety.
Avatar n tn so i made an appt with a new dr. and told him the ER was concerned with my BP. he prescribed a low dosage of Lisinopril which i began taking immediately. he ordered several blood tests (cholest, etc) and asked me to come back the following week. the Lisinopril began making me feel ill almost immediately and made it impossible for me to sleep so i stopped taking it after the 4th day. the following week, i returned to my dr to go over my test.
Avatar f tn I too am taking Toprol XL 100 mg for IST and SVT. And not for blood pressure... Works great for the rhythm issue but I am bottoming out at 92/48, 95/52, and etc. The doctors have seen me this way. I can't get out of bed in the night and must use a bed pan. The best I have ever used for Tachy was Bystolic 2.5 mg 2x's a day, but then for some odd reason that the doctor's could never figure out was sending my BP through the roof 168/115 range.
Avatar n tn To be honest, you should not be taking any medications prescribed for other people. Lidoderm is prescribed for people who have nerve pain due to shingles. And there are precautions that need to be followed using this medication as well as any side effects taken into account. If you are experiencing lower back pain you should see your doctor to confirm what is the cause. It may be that you have arthritis in your back, it could be from bladder or bowel problems and in women from womb problems.
21064 tn?1309312333 For example, I am taking lisinopril for BP control and Inderal for PVCs. I would like to know more about cholesterol medications like lipitor, crestor and vytorin. THANKS!!!
