Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your queries.
Your heart rate and your blood pressure is something that needs to be taken care of ASAP.
I would recommend that you be seen in the ER to have an EKG done first and then you should also have your blood pressure medication reviewed as well because the lisinopril has not worked for you as yet in controlling your blood pressure.
Let me know if you have more questions.
