Natasha (2 years ago):
I am currently on 7.5mg coumadin, female, age 31. I had a stroke 1 mo before my 30th birthday. They know it was from a clot but they have no clue where the clot originated from. Here the last 4-5 months when I have my period, I am blind for about 10-15 minutes on my first day. Is this something I should be concerned about. I only take coumadin, so the only difference is my period starting.

- Metoprolol & lisinopril, vs. carvedilol, lisinopril and warfarin
Lisinopril 25mg provokes horrific depression, despair, inability to navigate back to upbeat, creative state and fear for survival. Dizziness, crippling vertigo, etc every time I move from rest. Reducing dose to 2.5mg makes side effects tolerable, with no noticeable change in therapeutic effect.
