Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Would taking a low dose of lisinoril and low dose of black cohosh periodically at different times of the day help to prevent or lessen the possibilities of drug interaction?
    I'm 49 y/o still having regular periods, prehypertensive and premenopausal now for the last 2-3 years. My PCP finally put me on a very low dose of Lisinopril 5mg QD my B/P is now below or right at text book perfect. I started to have off and on s/sx of menopause very infrequent. Found a tincture made by a reptubal company of natural herbs and spices that makes a combo of black cohosk, black licore, chastise berry, etc. I use a very small amount on occasions when I think I might be feeling "the change" coming on. I seem to have equal positve effects from both drugs but I'm concerned about the studies that show long term ill effects!

  • Can the drug cellcept be used to treat pityriasis rosea
    Been diagnosed as Pityriasis Rosea. Dark patchy circles all over upper body and back. Condition has worsen, lasting over 5 months with outbreaks now on face and on scalp in hair. Some are painful raw blistery. Spreading on buttocks and a few on legs. Have tried several medications. Some have helped but none have cured. It is showing no signs of letting up. Dr has now prescribed Cellcept. Is this a safe drug for treatment for Pityriasis Rosea?
  • Has anyone had tingling in hands, arms, feet, legs from lisinopril that did not go away when they quit taking it? if you got rid of the tingles, how did you do it? (2 answers)
    After 9 months on Atenolol I started getting tingling in my left hand. Also had a pulmonary embolism. A doc switched me to Lisinopril and the tingling moved to my legs, feet, both hands and arms. My calf muscles are very tight and my legs ache. Plus dizziness and other things. After 3 years of going round and round with doctors and no one finding anything wrong with me, I found posts about Lisinopril and tingling and I quit taking it. But the tingling and aches have not gone away. Has anyone else had this problem and does anyone know how to fix it??? I get nowhere going to doctors, they find nothing wrong with me. Thanks

  • Awful lisinopril raised my liver enzymes too high
    That awful lisinopril raised my liver enzymes high, gave me a rash too . I feel poisoned , I tried to quit it and my bp skyrocketed . I had some clonodine so I took half of a one milligram pill and my bp lowered. Now my dr says because I am on atenolol I have to stop it before I can take clonodine . So I am trying, but lisinopril is a terrible drug. These doctors push it on us , I wonder why.
  • Pravastsin sodium 40 mg
    Began pravastatin 2 days ago...my. blood pressure spiked.
    Due to this rx
  • High cholesterol since on losartan and clonidine
    I found studies done ( via online reputable journals of medicine) that cholesterol was found to increase with the use of Losartan. Imagine that! The Dr was amazed since my healthy diet has not been changed for years. No statins for me!
  • Lisinopril caused peripheral neuropathy
    I began taking 10mg of Lisinopril recently and within a month began having moderate peripheral neuropathy. The neuropathy was shooting or stabbing sharp pains in hands and feet, burning calves, pins and needles in and around the eyes and ears, and burning eyes. This was so pronounced that I requested the doctor to switch me to Losartan immediately. The peripheral neuropathy quickly subsided and is gone ! My doctor had never heard of the Lisinopril causing this but now she knows. So people - you need to be your own advocate when you know something isn't right.
