Is there anyone else who have had serious side effects with hctz and lisinopril? My doc prescribed me hctz a month ago and added lisinopril 2 weeks ago. I started getting heart palpitations and rapid heart beat. I ended up with an abnormal ekg and in the critical care unit at the hospital. My heart rate was 120 bpm and my bp was 165 over 102. Everything was checked heart and lungs and labs and i was good. He said it was stress. However i went home with rapid heqrtbeat that was traumatic and scary. I did not take my other doses of bp meds that day. The following day my rapid heartbeat subsided and went away. I have not felt it in 3 days and i have not taken the meds either. I believe one of them or both have caused this to happen to me not to mention the extreme exhaustion i had while taking them. I feel like i have no energy but feel a bit better. How long does it take for the side effects to subside? Has anyone else experienced these things with these particular meds? I am to see a cardiologist next week but now im scared to put any other bp meds into my body.
