Comments for this study:

BillT. (2 years ago):

Male, 62, Sacramento, CA
I have been taking simivistatin for 7 years. I recently started taking generic FlowMax and it worked fine. My blood pressure at my last physical was 150/95 so I tracked it for a week and it seemed to stay the same, morning and night. My Dr. recommended that I take lisinopril (10 mg) once a day and when I did, after about 6 hours, I could not urinate for about 8 hours and when I did I experienced excrutiating pain. I had a swollen bladder for another 6 to 8 hours before the effects totally went away. I haven't taken another Lisinopril pill since then and have had now further problems. I do notice that my blood pressure is normal when I go to bed at night, but high when I get up. I assume that the FlowMax may be helping with the blood pressure for a few hours at least.
