Lisinopril dizziness

Common Questions and Answers about Lisinopril dizziness


Avatar n tn started 10mg lisinopril last month and have noticed a change in vision. In the past I have only required drug store reading glasses for close vision, but now I need them for reading things that are 3 - 5' away. Do your eyes adjust to this med with time, is it just something you should live with or is a change in medication required ?
Avatar f tn Watch for lower blood pressure effect, such as dizziness and tiredness. I hope you resumed the 20 mg lisinopril dose at the same time in following day. It would be a good idea to inform your physician, just for their record. It is also a good idea to bring your home daily blood pressure log and medication list to share with your provider at every visit. In addition, I'd like to recommend a pill box or a calendar to help you avoid future mixed-ups.
Avatar f tn First doses of lisinopril can cause dizziness due to a drop in blood pressure. Lisinopril can cause nausea, headaches, anxiety, insomnia, drowsiness, nasal congestion and sexual dysfunction. Lisinopril should be stopped if there are symptoms or signs of an allergic reaction including feelings of swelling of the face, lips, tongue or throat. Severe allergic reactions (anaphylaxis) and hives occasionally occur.
Avatar f tn Hi. I've been taking Lisinopril 40mg, and crazy dizziness and headaches occurred and brought my blood pressure down to around 90/50, so my doctor had me take only 20mg lisinopril per day. With 20mg, my blood pressure was constantly at 160-170/100. Then, the doctor told me to take Atenolol 25mg at night and lisinopril 20mg in the morning. It brought my blood pressure down to around 100/60 regularly, but recently it started going up again.
Avatar f tn The headache and dizziness may be caused by medicine side effect. Aside from headache and dizziness, amlodipine side effects may also include swelling of the lower extremities, flushing, fatigue, nausea, and palpitations. (ref: If these persist, you may need to inform his doctor for proper management. A change in medication or dosage may be indicated. Take care and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn My current meds are Effexor XR 150mg, Yaz (birth control), and Lisinopril 2.5mg. Lately I have had sudden/instant dizzy spells that hit me like's not the "normal" brain shivers from missing or being late on a dose of Effexor...this is physically debillitating. I will just be sitting here at the computer...not moving or standing up too fast, and it hits me. I have to immediately lie on the floor and raise my feet so I don't black out.
Avatar n tn Hi everyone ... has anyone out there experienced 24/7 dizziness from there anxiety ? I would describe my dizziness NOT as vertigo but as an imbalance while walking (accompanied by a heavy/drowsy head). Sometimes it feels like the ground is not solid. Those of you who have experienced the type of dizziness I've described, was it all day/everyday or just when you panic ? Does it ever seem to go away or subside ?
Avatar n tn If the standing blood pressure is below 90, that's the cause of the dizziness, and maybe less lisinopril will avoid the dizziness. IF the blood pressure is above 90 when standing and still dizzy, report the dizziness to the doctor.
Avatar n tn I take trazadone to help me sleep (not every night) and tylenol and aspirin if I have any pain, but I haven't taken anything tonight. Anyone know what could be causing this dizziness. I have been eating ( that was nver a problem unfortunately) Also I take 10 mg of lisinopril for high blood pressure. Any info would be helpful. Thanks S.
Avatar n tn 00am. I know that dizziness is a normal reaction but there is dizziness and there is falling down, unable to walk dizziness and they don't say what to expect. Q: Has anyone had a reaction like this? I have a hunch that this may NOT be tx related because I had an episode just like this about 10 to 15 years ago and I wasn't on any treatment. However, I have low blood platelets (88,000) and really feel like garbage this a.m.
Avatar n tn In May I began to have dizzy spells which coincided with a sore throat and earache, which cleared up on their own. However, dizziness and fatigue continued for several weeks. The dizziness resembled being carsick, with lightheadedness and occasional moments of nausea and feeling faint (but I never passed out). I had a CAT scan and blood work twice, and so far no diagnosis for the dizziness/fatigue.
Avatar n tn I am taking 5.25 triamterene AND lisinopril 10mg, I have had some changes to the artries in my neck I have 30% blockage, Could this just be from the pills?
Avatar m tn After stopping and getting off the treadmill, the dizziness got stronger, my hearing went a little muffled and my heart rate dropped to 59. It felt like I was going to pass out (I've never passed out before). A minute or two later and some deep breaths my heart rate returned to the high 90's and low 100's and the dizziness was gone. This never happen to me before, now it has happened twice in the past two days.
Avatar n tn First, I started getting headaches in the morning, late afternoon. As soon as these arrived, I had mild dizziness, which has been continuous for 2 months. I am in my mid 30's, too. As a child, and now, I am overweight, but I have lost 20 pounds (the weight of this pregnancy). Well, ok, this is what is going on now... I am having shortness of breath, dizziness, (usually when getting things) tilting my head.
Pig Both amlodipine and lisinopril have the potential to cause dizziness, because they work to lower your blood pressure. When you first begin taking these medications you may experience dizziness if you suddenly stand up after sitting for awhile, but as your body adjusts this side effect should go away. If dizziness becomes a problem, it may be more reasonable to take these medications at bedtime. The most important thing about these medications is to take them at the same time every day.
Avatar n tn According to the FDA approved drug information, methocarbamol does not interact with lisinopril or hydrochlorothiazide. Methocarbamol is a muscle relaxant used to treat pain caused by muscle spasms. The most common side effects of methocarbamol are drowsiness, dizziness, nausea, and headache.
Avatar n tn (found it after further testing due to high blood pressure) Dr. just put me on Lisinopril and Hydrochlort. for the hypertension. On several occasions I have been noticing some numbness in my toes. Some times it's just one toe and some times it's 3 or 4 toes. Any idea's? Could this be due to the medicine?
Avatar n tn Have they ever considered changing your captopril to one of the ACE inhibitors like lisinopril, can be taken once daily? 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.
Avatar n tn I'm 53, until a month ago my BP averaged in the 130/80 range I was working at an about 600 feet above sea level, now I'm working overseas at an altitude of 3800 ft and my BP is now averaging upper 140's/90 range, and has hit 154/94. The local physician has started me on Lisinopril 20mg, after one week no change in BP. How much does altitude affect BP, and will my body acclimate to a point that my BP goes back down, or am I destined to stay on medication?
Avatar n tn 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?
1221269 tn?1267592369 I'm 23 year's old. I recently began to have extreme trouble with dizziness (about 3 months ago) and was told I had high blood pressure. They put me on Lisinopril. I ended up in the hospital a month later (Christmas Day) with chest pains. They then told me they thought the Lisinopril was to blame. They took me off Lisinopril and put me on Atenolol. The Atenolol (over the course of a couple of weeks) lowered my pulse rate too much and started causing my heart rate to become irregular.
541196 tn?1293556536 Also, with patients that have underlying cardiac conditions, excess thyroid hormone can produce symptoms including chest pain and palpitations. Adverse reactions with lisinopril include dizziness, headache, fatigue, and a persistent cough. Difficulty breathing has been reported (very rare). The most common side-effects of Dostinex are headache, dizziness, constipation, fatigue, abdominal pain, and drowsiness. Please discuss theese concerns with your physician as well.

1764316 tn?1313482170 after about 2 min after the feeling i get a electric feeling in my whole body very light doesnt hurt neither does the dizziness. the dizziness almost feels good. the doctor doesnt really know what it is. and seems to be more concerned with my bp then anything. could these symptoms be linked together or cause of meds.
Avatar f tn Hello all My doctor prescribed me Lisinopril 40mg when my blood pressure was 170/105 at hospital about 6 months ago. I had dizziness (electricity going through my brain feeling) and fatigue, hard time breathing before the doctor's visit, but even after the medication, the symptoms continued. But, my blood pressure was regulated to around 110/80. Then, slowly, my blood pressure started coming down even more to 100/80, 90/70, then 80/60.
199677 tn?1231093134 But, I had a ECHO and my EF dropped from 30 to 26 in just a few months without the lisinopril. Dr has tried to slowly get me back on Lisinopril at a very low dose, but the symptoms immediately come back. I have tried 3 different "prils" and they all have the same affect on me. So, Dr tried me on Diovan, 1/2 pill a day (20 mgs) and I have the same three symptoms plus severe dizziness. I am almost confined to home where I can grab a chair asap.
Avatar n tn I recently was diagnosed with the above along with arryhmia and aortic and mitral valve insufficienc. I have low pressure normally so my doctor prescribed 2.5mg of lisinopril. After taking it for 5 nights I've started to experience dizziness when I get up during the night. I also wake up with a dry cough. Tuesday my blood pressure was 86/53. Is there any other treatment for this "mild" case of cardiomyopthy other than blood pressure lowering medicine?
Avatar n tn Prescribed treatment was 5mg. Lisinopril, 81mg. aspirin and diet change with another echo in three months. The pressure and chest discomfort subsided about 505 but recently began having periods of lightheadedness. Lisinopril was reduced to 2.5mgs as of yesterday and I am now supposed to be checked by nurse on 11/5 and will see the Cardiologist again on 11/14. I am very symptomatic and have not been able to return to work. I am currently in process of applying for Disability.
Avatar n tn I read that there are several mechanisms of PVCs? He has been tolerating lisinopril 20 mg well for several week. Now he feels dizzy and lightheaded. His blood pressure is 90/60 and 100/70. Does that mean his EF went down? Is this common in cardiomyopathy that one suddenly cannot tolerate medication?
