  • Lisinopril withdrawals - how long can they really last?

    About 5 years ago, I was prescribed Lisinopril (40 mg/day), Amlodipine, and Atenolol to get my BP under control. I've gotten a lot healthier over those years and was taken off of the Amlodipine and Atenolol a couple of years ago. Three weeks ago today, I saw my doctor because my BP was dropping...

  • My BP is 166/92 taking 10mg Enalapril at my 79 years

    Can't imagine what I can change in my lifestyle as I go to the Gym 3 times a week, play golf at least once a week and walk everyday for 40 minutes. I eat modestly, drink very little and only eat homemade food low in fat and lightly salted. Reluctant to change medication.

    My cardiologist recommends me starting on lisinopril at 20 mg daily. Does anyone know a proven natural alternative. Can you increase mild ventricular inefficiency due to heart attack 10 years ago such as exercise and diet.
