- Xanax bed wetting will it stop and do i wear diapers or die (1 response)
I am on the very edge of crazy. So starting this is pushing ne way over. I'm 49 for crap sakes. I am so tired of the pain in my body and I am just tired, this is the last slap I can't anymore. Naturally alcohol I am sure is just about the end game along with cuts.
Just want to bleed out and not hurt anymore and be so scared to leave my house or sleep. I just want to sleep forever.

- 57 year old male diagnosed with stage 2 hypertension
Started on 20mg once a day, I was working long hours so I'm not sure when the fatigue first started. At physical doctor thought the dosage should be doubled. In a few days the fatigue started to become overwhelming. I was having a hard time staying awake, not because I was drowsy but felt that weak. I thought it was because I was working on a difficult project. No amount of rest could alleviate the extreme severe fatigue. I was tired all the time, even on weekends and holidays. I have never felt so run down. I thought it was my job causing these issues. I was almost ready to leave the job because of my concerns about my fatigue. I then considered, it might be the Lisinopril. I stopped taking it for a couple of days and then went back to my 20mg dosage. I felt much better but I am considering not taking any. At 40 mg it lowered my blood pressure but I have a daily rise in BP due to my commute and that still continued. This drug scares me. I had never been so overwhelmed.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 days ago):
Most of these symptoms started with the use of cozaar. I would like to cease using this drug since the confusion and memory loss is becoming acute and intolerable
From this study (7 days ago):
Difficulty doing daily tasks tire easily and get in very much pain
From this study (4 weeks ago):
For over two years I have had increasing trouble reason and understanding written and oral communications . My work has suffered and my bosses complain I forget assignments and ble others for problems. I had to resign a few months ago or be terminated . Until 2 years ago I had excellent reviews ad was told I was a 'star.' I have noticed my dyslexia has gotten worse. I can still type but I can no longer understand legal briefs that I have worked on for 25 years. Two doctors suspect Alzheimer's but because I can pass the 5 minute memory quiz, they won't treat me with medications that might help. I understand that people with advanced degrees and higher iQs are harder to test since we function at higher capacity. My dad had Alzheimer's. His Mother had early onset Alzheimer's. Also my Dad's mother's sister had early onset Alzheimer's.
