Customer Question

I have been on Lisinopril 10 mg for awhile and in March the doctor told me to stop because my BP was low. For the past few days, I have been experience dizziness and this morning at 8:55 when I checked BP it was 178/105 so I took an aspirin instead of my BP med because it says to take at bedtime. I'm still feeling a little light headed which has eventually gone away in the past. Incidentally, I was out of town when this all happened and first time today since I've been back. What should I do?

this is Dr. David

it sounds like your blood pressure is going up and down which can be serious

you also need to check your heart rate as well

if your heart rate is fast or irregular, you should go to the ER and get your heart and blood pressure checked.

you could have a heart arrhythmia which can be causing ups and downs in your blood pressure.

you might need to see a cardiologist and get more heart testing to see why your blood pressure is going up and down.

let me know if you have questions.
