Hi; V. Clark, I have been taking lisinopril since 2012. In the beginning, I was told that I had pre-diabeties,I did not experience any problem at that point. Then I started taking amlodipine and lipitor for cholesterol because of the "TIA's" I started having. In 2013 I decided to get of of lipitor because of all the negative feedback that was out there stating that women were getting diabetes from the drug. Having my AC test did and the lever was 6.1, I was told that I was headed into diabetes if my A1C went up to 7.1. So I got it down to 5.7. and still at a 5.8. now I was told. Still taking the lisinopril 5 to 10mg and amlodipine 10mg, plavax 75mg and simvastatin 20mg. Still having issue. Now as of 2015 June. July my systom are more bothersome even though my glucose level are normal unless I over eat carbs. I am in manage care. I have recently start having hypoglycemic more, so I decide to take myself off the lisinpril, plavax, and simvastatin. I can say I have not been having low blood sugar as much, but I can still feel the sugar running through my vein but not bothersome at all. I have ask my doctor three times to take me off and he refuse, can someone help me and tell what should I do at this point, My cardiologist is one of the best in Chicago, he specialize in any area of the heart.
Hi, I'm Julie, 67 year old lady - always been fit and active until recently. I've just started taking 10mg lisinopril daily for high blood pressure - got chest pain within a few days. Had the same problem with beta blockers and had to stop taking them - should I do the same with this drug? If drugs aren't improving quality of life I can't see the point of taking them! Is anyone else out there with thus problem?
