will any these come up positive
My lisinopril seems to be having no effect at all. My blood pressure is consistently 200+/110+, though I have increased to 40 mg daily. Even doubling it has little or no effect.
Jerry on Aug, 18, 2012:
40 mg lisinopril should not be taken without express permission from your doctor. There are other b/p medications that will lower your numbers without increasing the dosage. I'm a 61 yr old male who can't take beta blockers, such as lisinopril, because of asthma. But, I was a paramedic and have worked in the medical field for all my life; hospitals, labs, O.R, E.R., etc. I also discuss medications with doctors in various fields. I take Diovan 320 in p.m. and Norvasc 10 (twice daily). I, too, was in the extreme danger zone, as are you. You can combine lisinopril with other meds. Talk to your doctor! You're at risk. I'll assume here that you are not morbidly obese and have somewhat healthy cholesterol levels. Unfortunately, the doctors are right when they advise people in those categories.
