Customer Question
I have been diagnosed with...
I have been diagnosed with lichen planus. My dermatologist has recommended that I stop taking my blood pressure medications (lisinipril & Aldactazide) for a month, but my family physician is very concerned that my blood pressure will elevate. With the BP meds my blood pressure is under control. I'm confused and don't know what to do.

Hello,
You do not need to stop taking your blood pressure medications - and this would not be recommended when being treated with clobesterol. Also, another medication that you can try for lichen is called Tacrolimus.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
