Can you tell me about Lisinopril?
My brother got this prescribed by a Doctor for his blood pressure, but it's not working that good per my brother's words. Can you tell me about it? Asked by Elbert Rosenkrans 1 month ago.

I'm not sure what it is you want to know about lisinopril. It's not capitalized, this is the generic name for Zestril and Prinivil. It's in the classification of antihypertensive meds known as ACE (angiotensin converting enzyme) inhibitors. Although the action is unnkown, it's thought to result primarily from the suppression of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system. The most common adverse reactions are dizziness, orhtostatic hypotension, nasal congestion and diarrhea. A few of the less common adverse effects are headache, fatigue, nausea, impotence, rash and a persistent dry nonproductive cough. The life-threatening adverse reactions are hyperkalemia and rarely, anaphalaxis with afcial, throat and laryngeal edema. It has a number of drug interactions. Interacts with Capsaicin to cause an ACE-inhibitor-induced cough. May cause hyperkalemia when used with potassium-containing salt substitutes. It can increase creatinine, BUN, potassium, bilirubin levels and liver function test values. The treatment of hypertension is typically a 3-step one. Step 1 is making changes in diet, weight loss and changes in lifestyle (no smoking, reduced or no drinking, exercise, stress management). If this doesn't work, Step 2 is introducing an antihypertensive while continuing Step 1. Dosage adjuments may be needed for maximum effectiveness. If both Steps 1 & 2 fail to produce the desired results, Step 3 is adding another antihypertensive. I have no idea what your brother's dosage is and for how long he's been using it or anything else he's done to lower his blood pressure but he may need a dosage adjustment. He should also be following Step 1. Suggest he speak to his doctor. Answered by Luetta Mieles 1 month ago.

Yes it is for your blood pressure, and yes if you stop it for 2 weeks your blood pressure will go back up. Lisinopril is actually used to help kidneys, it acts in the kidneys to lower the filtration pressure (blood pressure in the kidney) this is beneficial for the kidneys long term, but in some patients it lowers the filtration pressure to much, to the point that the kidneys can't filter the blood properly. From what you are describing, I would bet this is what is going on. Just stop taking the lisinopril, they will check you again in a few weeks and may put you back on a lower dose of the lisinopril or try a different blood pressure medications.

Bipolar and meds combo?
What other meds combos are apart from old stand by lithium? Asked by Ashley Mehaffy 1 month ago.

you don't need combos for bipolar disorder because if you have one...it doesn't work, the dosage can be upped and it'll end up working. Lithium is pretty dangerous considering most medications can affect you and make the lithium not work... * acetazolamide (Diamox); * aminophylline (Truphylline) or theophylline (Elixophyllin, Respbid, Theo-Bid, Theo-Dur, Uniphyl); * sodium bicarbonate (Alka-Seltzer, Bicitra, Polycitra, or baking soda home remedy antacid); * carbamazepine (Carbatrol, Tegretol); * fluoxetine (Prozac); * metronidazole (Flagyl); * potassium iodide thyroid medication (Pima); * an ACE inhibitor such as benazepril (Lotensin), captopril (Capoten), fosinopril (Monopril), enalapril (Vasotec), lisinopril (Prinivil, Zestril), moexipril (Univasc), perindopril (Aceon), quinapril (Accupril), ramipril (Altace), or trandolapril (Mavik); * a calcium channel blocker such as diltiazem (Tiazac, Cartia, Cardizem) or verapamil (Calan, Covera, Isoptin, Verelan); * a diuretic (water pill) such as amiloride (Midamor, Moduretic), bumetanide (Bumex), chlorthalidone (Hygroton, Thalitone), ethacrynic acid (Edecrin), furosemide (Lasix), hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ, HydroDiuril, Hyzaar, Vasoretic,Zestoretic), indapamide (Lozol), metolazone (Mykrox, Zaroxolyn), spironolactone (Aldactazide, Aldactone), triamterene (Dyrenium, Maxzide, Dyazide), torsemide (Demadex), and others; * medicines to treat psychiatric disorders, such as haloperidol (Haldol), aripiprazole (Abilify), chlorpromazine (Thorazine), clozapine (Clozaril, Fazaclo), olanzapine (Zyprexa), quetiapine (Seroquel), pimozide (Orap), risperidone (Risperdal), or ziprasidone (Geodon); or * celecoxib (Celebrex) or an NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) such as ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil), naproxen (Aleve, Naprosyn), diclofenac (Voltaren), diflunisal (Dolobid), etodolac (Lodine), flurbiprofen (Ansaid), indomethacin (Indocin), ketoprofen (Orudis), ketorolac (Toradol), mefenamic acid (Ponstel), meloxicam (Mobic), nabumetone (Relafen), piroxicam (Feldene), and others. that's all that you couldn't take with Lithium. plus, it's recommended to have your blood drawn every so often while on it. and it causes weight gain....yeah, not good. BUT. Lamictal is probably the newest drug on the market for BP. i take it and have been for 2 years now since i was diagnosed with type II bipolar disorder....it's a 5 week process, but it's worth the wait. i think it's a miracle drug and doesn't cause all the side effects other drugs have. in rare cases a body rash can happen, to some people. but even with that, it's not even life threatening. i've only had to up my dosage from 100mg [stayed at that for a year and a half] to 150mg. and now...after my struggles with BP for all of high school...i'm a senior and happy 85% of the time. to the point where people wouldn't even figure somethings wrong with me. so my advice...talk to your doc about switching Lamictal. it doesn't cause weight gain. in my experience, along with my adderall i lost the 30 pounds i gained when i was depressed. back at 160 at 6'2'. research the drug...really it's probably the best. i asked my psych why he didn't put me on lithium, and told me that even though lithium is the most popular drug, he's found in that nearly 2/3 of his bipolar patients of his patients [who was put on that at first or other mood stabilizers didn't work] since the drug came out has worked very well for them. Answered by Tracey Mcgillicuddy 1 month ago.

Lithium, is by far the best for True Bipolar. You must get your blood tests regular to check your lithium levels, but it is known to work the best. My son took this for many years and he did the best on it. He now refuses and his life is a mess because of it. Answered by Denver Knapko 1 month ago.

For mood stabilizers, there is Depakote, Topamax, Lamitcal, Abilify... There are more, can't think of them all. Anti-depressants, Prozac, Zoloft, Effexor, Wellbutrin, Cymbalta, Lexapro, etc etc. There are also mixes like Symbyax, which is Prozac with and antipsychotic. There are a whole bunch of things... Answered by Ayanna Paige 1 month ago.

There are more choice's in bi-polar meds now, like, depecote, seroquel, limictal, closeril and a host of others, only your health care provider can accurately know which combinations are safe and effective for you, the best to you, Mercee. Answered by Fay Amalong 1 month ago.

My mother has LUPUS is this the best medication for her?????? HELP!?
My mother has lupus and she is suffering. She has chronic sinus infections as well as high blood pressure, headaches, she is also quite swollen.

My daughter has Lupus, so I think your mother has been giving the medications with the worst side effects there is. Go to womentowomen.com this is the best online medical advice for women. When on medications that do not make you better change them. You are in charge not the doctor. Medications can be a good thing, but they can KILL YOU with the many SIDE EFFECTS. Doctors will change your medications when you let them know you are not feeling well taking certain one medications. You can also talk to your PHARMACY to ask are some of the medications interfering with each other. Other than talking to your DOCTOR, PHARMACIST; you can ASK QUESTIONS ABOUT YOUR HEALTH at WOMENTOWOMEN.COM. Answered by Danette Younie 1 month ago.

I used to be identified with SLE in October 1994. Fortunately for me, my case is moderate. However, Lupus broken the liner of my lungs so I have shortness of breath and approximately 60% lung potential. I take 2 medicinal drugs to manage the infection: prednisone and plaquenil. The medical professionals have no idea if Lupus will also be handed from guardian to youngster or if it runs in households. My mom had a cousin with the ailment however none of my near family have it. If your mom used to be simply identified, she has most commonly been dwelling with the ailment for a even as. Lupus is most often tricky to diagnose. Make definite your mom is seeing a well rheumatologist. The medical professional will most commonly verify your mom's kidneys to ensure they're functioning appropriately. If she is having quandary respiring, she's going to have got to have lung position checks to degree her respiring potential. Your mom will have durations whilst she is bodily worn out. I do not know approximately natural cures for Lupus. The primary factor with Lupus is the infection. It can assault the joints, organs, dermis. If your mom wishes to take natural cures that is nice, however I might now not endorse treating Lupus with natural cures on my own. Answered by Salley Balent 1 month ago.

Listen to the doctor. Lupus is a very difficult disease to manage. No two patients have the exact same set of symptoms. A drug that works for one person may not work for another. Plaquenil is standard. It helps prevent flares. Wafarin is a blood thinner. It will help prevent strokes and heart attacks. I am not sure about the other medications. You can read about them at webmd.com. No one knows the BEST medication. That is because lupus is so unpredictable. Let your mom and her doc handle this. Answered by Launa Gamela 1 month ago.

Asked by Caprice Peguese 1 month ago.

From some information, i know that there are few types of high blood pressure medication: * calcium channel blocker, e.g Amlodipine * ACE inhibitors, e.g Zestril * HCTZ * beta blockers My mother is suffering high blood pressure, and currently taking Amlodipine 10mg daily, but it seems not reducing it. Before she also took Zestril, but she often got cough of it. How each of the medication above function and suitable for a patient? What is the difference of one to another? Answered by Ross Mandes 1 month ago.

Since your mom was having a side effect from Zestril, her anti-hypertensive was changed to Amlodipine. If your mom's bp is not responding to amlodipine, visit her doctor so that the doctor can change her medication. I am also wondering when do you check your mom's bp? if she takes the tablet in the AM, the blood pressure should be lower by the PM. I am also wondering if your mom's ankles or legs are puffy. Angiotensin II is a very potent chemical that causes the muscles surrounding blood vessels to contract and thereby narrows the blood vessels. The narrowing of the vessels increases the pressure within the vessels and can cause high blood pressure (hypertension). Angiotensin II is formed from angiotensin I in the blood by the enzyme, angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE). ACE inhibitors are medications that slow (inhibit) the activity of the enzyme, which decreases the production of angiotensin II. As a result, the blood vessels enlarge or dilate, and the blood pressure is reduced. This lower blood pressure makes it easier for the heart to pump blood and can improve the function of a failing heart. In addition, the progression of kidney disease due to high blood pressure or diabetes is slowed. ACE inhibitors are used for controlling blood pressure, treating heart failure and preventing kidney damage in people with hypertension or diabetes. They also benefit patients who have had heart attacks. In studies, individuals with hypertension, heart failure, or prior heart attacks who were treated with an ACE inhibitor lived longer than patients who did not take an ACE inhibitor. Because they prevent early death resulting from hypertension, heart failure or heart attacks, ACE inhibitors are one of the most important group of drugs. Some individuals with hypertension do not respond sufficiently to ACE inhibitors alone. In these cases, other drugs are used in combination with ACE inhibitors. Calcium channel blockers (CCBs) are a class of drugs that block the entry of calcium into the muscle cells of the heart and the arteries. It is the entry of calcium into these cells that causes the heart to contract and arteries to narrow. By blocking the entry of calcium, CCBs decrease contraction of the heart and dilate (widen) the arteries. e.g. captopril (Capoten), benazepril (Lotensin), enalapril (Vasotec), lisinopril (Prinivil, Zestril) fosinopril (Monopril), ramipril (Altace), perindopril (Aceon), quinapril (Accupril), moexipril (Univasc), and trandolapril (Mavik). In order to pump blood, the heart needs oxygen. The harder the heart works, the more oxygen it requires. Angina (heart pain) occurs when the supply of oxygen to the heart is inadequate for the amount of work the heart must do. By dilating the arteries, CCBs reduce the pressure in the arteries. This makes it easier for the heart to pump blood, and, as a result, the heart needs less oxygen. By reducing the heart's need for oxygen, CCBs relieve or prevent angina. CCBs also are used for treating high blood pressure because of their blood pressure-lowering effects. CCBs also slow the rate at which the heart beats and are therefore used for treating certain types of abnormally rapid heart rhythms. CCBs are used for treating high blood pressure, angina, and abnormal heart rhythms (e.g., atrial fibrillation). They also may be used after a heart attack, particularly among patients who cannot tolerate beta-blocking drugs, have atrial fibrillation, or require treatment for their angina. (Unlike beta blockers, CCBs have not been shown to reduce mortality or additional heart attacks after a heart attack.) CCBs are as effective as ACE inhibitors in reducing blood pressure, but they may not be as effective as ACE inhibitors in preventing the kidney failure of high blood pressure or diabetes. e.g. Amlodipine, verapamil, diltiazem Beta-blockers are used to lower high blood pressure, relieve angina (chest pain), correct arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats), reduce the risk of dying after a heart attack and treat heart failure. Some beta-blockers are used to prevent migraine, some can reduce physical symptoms associated with anxiety, such as palpitations and shaking, and some are used for relief of symptoms associated with hyperthyroidism (an overactive thyroid gland). There are also eye drops containing certain beta-blockers that are used to treat glaucoma, an eye condition caused by a build-up of pressure due to reduced drainage of fluid from the eye, which can result in blindness. up to the top. e.g.Acebutolol (Sectral) Atenolol (Tenormin) Betaxolol hydrochloride (Kerlone, Betoptic) Bisoprolol fumarate (black triangle Cardicor, Monocor) Carteolol hydrochloride (Teoptic) black triangle Carvedilol (Eucardic) Celiprolol hydrochloride (Celectol) Esmolol hydrochloride (Brevibloc) Labetalol hydrochloride (Trandate) Levobunolol Metoprolol tartrate (Betaloc, Lopresor) Metipranolol Nadolol (Corgard) black triangle Nebivolol (Nebilet) Oxprenolol hydrochloride (Trasicor) Pindolol (Visken) Propranolol hydrochloride (Inderal) Sotalol hydrochloride (Beta-cardone) Timolol maleate (Betim, Timoptol) Answered by Gerardo Summey 1 month ago.

Lithium drug interactions: Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), [for example, ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil), naproxen Naprosyn, Aleve), indomethacin (Indocin), nabumetone (Relafen), diclofenac (Voltaren, Cataflam, Arthrotec), ketorolac (Toradol)], reduce the kidney's ability to eliminate lithium and lead to elevated levels of lithium in the blood and lithium side effects. Blood concentrations of lithium may need to be measured for 4 to 7 days after an NSAID is either added or stopped during lithium therapy. Aspirin and sulindac (Clinoril) do not appear to affect lithium concentrations in the blood. Diuretics (water pills) should be used cautiously in patients receiving lithium. Diuretics that act at the distal renal tubule, [for example, hydrochlorothiazide (Hydrodiuril), spironolactone (Aldactone), triamterene (Dyrenium; Dyazide, Maxzide)], can increase blood concentrations of lithium. Diuretics that act at the proximal tubule, [for example, acetazolamide (Diamox)], are more likely to reduce blood concentrations of lithium. Diuretics such as furosemide (Lasix) and bumetanide (Bumex) may have no affect on lithium concentrations in blood. ACE inhibitors, [for example, enalapril (Vasotec), lisinopril (Zestril, Prinivil), benazepril (Lotensin), quinapril (Accupril), moexipril (Univasc), captopril (Capoten), ramipril (Altace)], may increase the risk of developing lithium toxicity, by increasing the amount of lithium that is reabsorbed in the tubules of the kidney and thereby reducing the excretion of lithium. When carbamazepine (Tegretol) and lithium are used together, some patients may experience side effects, including dizziness, lethargy, and tremor. Central nervous system side effects also may occur when lithium is used with antidepressants, [for example, fluoxetine (Prozac) sertraline (Zoloft), and paroxetine (Paxil), fluvoxamine (Luvox), amitriptyline (Elavil), imipramine (Tofranil), desipramine (Norpramin)]. Medications which cause the urine to become alkaline (the opposite of acidic) can increase the amount of lithium that is lost into the urine. This results in lower blood concentrations of lithium and reduces the effects of lithium. Such drugs include potassium acetate, potassium citrate (Urocit-K), sodium bicarbonate, and sodium citrate (Bicitra, Cytra-2, Liqui-Citra, Oracit, Shohl's). Caffeine appears to reduce serum lithium concentrations, and side effects of lithium have increased in frequency when caffeine is consumed. Both diltiazem (Cardizem-CD, Tiazac, Dilacor-XR) and verapamil (Calan-SR, Isoptin-SR, Verelan, Covera-HS) have been reported to have variable effects on lithium levels in blood. In some patients there may be decreased lithium blood levels and in others lithium toxicity. Methyldopa (Aldomet) may increase the likelihood of lithium toxicity. Various reactions have resulted when lithium is administered with phenothiazines, [for example, chlorpromazine (Thorazine), thioridazine (Mellaril), trifluoperazine (Stelazine) or with haloperidol (Haldol)]. Such reactions have included delirium, seizures, encephalopathy, high fever or certain neurologic reactions that affect movement of muscles, called extrapyramidal symptoms. Lithium can cause goiter or hypothyroidism. The use of lithium with potassium iodide can increase the likelihood of this adverse reaction. The use of the beta blocker, propranolol (Inderal), with lithium can lead to a slow heart rate and dizziness. Other beta blockers, [for example, metoprolol (Lopressor), atenolol (Tenormin)] also may interact with lithium and be associated with a slow heart rate. Seroquel interations: Your healthcare professionals (e.g., doctor or pharmacist) may already be aware of any possible drug interactions and may be monitoring you for it. Do not start, stop or change the dosage of any medicine before checking with them first. This drug should not be used with the following medication because very serious interactions may occur: sibutramine. If you are currently using this medication, tell your doctor or pharmacist before starting quetiapine. Before using this medication, tell your doctor or pharmacist of all prescription and nonprescription/herbal products you may use, especially of: anticholinergics (e.g., belladonna alkaloids, benztropine, scopolamine), dopamine-like drugs (e.g., bromocriptine, cabergoline), levodopa, rifabutin, drugs for treating high blood pressure (e.g., alpha blockers such as prazosin, calcium channel blockers such as diltiazem, "water pills"/diuretics such as hydrochlorothiazide), drugs affecting liver enzymes that remove quetiapine from your body (e.g., azole antifungals such as fluconazole/ketoconazole/itraconazole, barbiturates such as phenobarbital, glucocorticoids such as dexamethasone, macrolide antibiotics such as erythromycin, rifampin, certain anti-seizure drugs such as carbamazepine/phenytoin, thioridazine), thyroid medicine (e.g., thyroxine).

Well, its kinda hard if you arent consistent with your medications. The meds aren't miracle workers, you can't really expect them to really do their job if you don't take them regularly. Those do sound like somewhat higher doses, at least the seroquel does. Generally most doctors will start you rather low, and gradually work your dosage up to what you need, that way side effects are minimized. If you don't take them for awhile, then all of a sudden decide to start up again, you can expect to feel worse for the first week. I would see your doc as soon as you can, let them know how you're feeling and what you've been doing with the meds, and once they prescribe you more, stick to it and you'll feel better.

It sounds to me like both of you are the problem. Whether you like it or not, she does have the right to tell you what to do. She is the adult and you are the child in the household. Grow up and get over it. The crap of "Of course I went over budget" Shows a complete disregard for others. She has no business screaming at you but I think there is more to the story and a lot of history in your relationship. The best thing to do would be to seek counseling with a professional. Neither of you is completely right or wrong but there are some serious issues to deal with. Be ready to compromise. Just for the record, I raised my step daughter from the time she was two years old. There were lots of issues because she thought the same way you do and in my house I am the undisputed boss. Had she screamed at me, even at 15, she would have been over my knee and spanked before she could get half a sentence out of her mouth. But then, I tried to always be fair and reasonable, even taking her side against my own daughter several times because I felt the stepdaughter was right. In the end, you are fighting a losing battle and making matters worse with your attitude. Try working together! Answered by Erin Wethington 1 month ago.

In order for the meds. to work correctly you need to take them regularly. Your doctor has you on these dosages because he thinks they will work the best in this combination. Keep taking them every day on time until you have your appointment. If things haven't cleared up then have a talk with him and he can recommend any changes you may need.

I take lisinopril, an ACE inhibitor. Alternatives? Grunting/clearing throat issues...?
One responder described ARB as a class of drugs that are an alternative. Does anyone happen to know the drugs that would be included as ARB-class drugs? Asked by Maryjo Racilis 1 month ago.

I take lisinopril, an ACE inhibitor, and I'm looking for alternatives. I constantly have to grunt/feel the need to clear my throat, and it's driving me and other people around me. Essentially, I want the blood-pressure-lowering benefits, but not the side effects of a dry/itchy throat. Cough drops work for a time, but I'm looking for an alternative medication-based solution. Answered by Corinne Kay 1 month ago.

Me Me, This chain of blood pressure regulating hormones is referred to as the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone (RAA) hormonal system. The RAA system has long been known to be important in regulating the blood pressure in the body. Two classes of drugs have the most substantial effects on the RAA system. These two classes are the angiotensin receptor blockers (ARB drugs) and the angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors - ACE inhibitors. Both of these classes of drugs lower blood pressure by blocking certain specific steps in the RAA chain. Very briefly, the ARB drugs block the chemical receptors for angiotensin II on the small arteries (arterioles). Therefore, the angiotensin cannot cause these arteries to constrict, which lowers the blood pressure. When the small arteries are constricted, they become stiff and narrow, which elevates the blood pressure. By blocking the action of angiotensin II on the small arteries, the ARB drugs prevent them from narrowing (constricting). The effect is to widen the arteries, which lowers the blood pressure. The ACE inhibitors block the action of the angiotensin-converting enzyme in the lungs so that angiotensin I is not converted into angiotensin II. The production of this powerful blood vessel constrictor is thereby prevented. The blood vessels thus remain widened, which results in lowering of the blood pressure. I list some drugs under this category:- The ARBs include candesartan (Atacand), olmesartan (Benicar), losartan (Cozaar), valsartan (Diovan), irbesartan (Avapro), telmisartan (Micardis) and eprosartan (Teveten). The following is an alphabetical list of the ACE inhibitors that are available in the United States: Benazepril (Lotensin), Captopril (Capoten), Enalapril (Vasotec), Fosinopril (Monopril), Moexipril (Univasc), Perindopril(Aceon), Quinapril (Accupril), Ramipril (Altace), Trandolapril (Mavik). I have left your current medication until the end, for obvious reasons. Lisinopril (Prinivil, Zestril). As each patient has different case details, you should discuss the difficulties that you have with your present medication and seek your doctor’s advice on which medication to change to that would be suitable for your needs. Be aware that many side effects are seen with ARB and ACE medications. You would be advised to discuss any major concerns with your doctor before starting therapy. ALL ANSWERS SHOULD BE THOROUGHLY RESEARCHED, IN ANY FORUM AND ESPECIALLY IN THIS ONE. - MANY ANSWERS ARE FLAWED.

Ask your doc if the symptoms are related. If so a drug class called "ARB" gives the same benefits with less side effects. Answered by Tamekia Kornblum 1 month ago.


After I take Ibuprofen I always get hot,it happens everytime I take it?
Is this all in my head or is it possible, I do take high blood pressure medicine. Asked by Ileana Matsen 1 month ago.

You're probably having some kind of reaction to it. I would not take it anymore, and also speak to a doctor or pharmacist about it. Ask them what else is safe to take instead. Ibuprofen is a blood thinner... maybe it's not safe to take with blood pressure medicine. Answered by Talia Schermerhorn 1 month ago.
