I have severe anxiety.constantly worries and always depressed

Dear,

Thanks for all these additional details.

I am sorry to hear about your problems.

Well, Lisinopril is a ACE inhibitor drug means angiotensin converting enzyme.

You should get good results by two weeks.

Genetic factors likely play some role in high blood pressure, heart disease, and other related conditions.

The risk for high blood pressure can increase even more when heredity combines with unhealthy lifestyle choices, such as smoking cigarettes and eating an unhealthy diet.

You should laugh more or watch a comedy or read a funny book.

You should connect with friends and family, You can make plans to meet for dinner.

You can go for meditating and yoga, it would quiet your mind.

You can Limit your alcohol and caffeine consumption.

Please don't worry and don't think for you are sick person. You can follow healthy eating and lifestyle changes, it would be very useful.

Hope this helped

i am also slightly overweight. but not to much . i drive for living as well.i actally feel strange if i think i am happy. i was diagnosed with high blood pressure some 8 years ago. just started on lisinoprol again. it always helps and i feel much better overall. also was divorced last year as well as mother passing away. so my stress levels are through the roof. i dont know how to get rid of all this .and truthfully it is very easy for me to get depressed. it does not take much.ever. have felt this way since i was a child .

Dear,

Please be relaxed, and don't worry too much.

You should get engaged in aerobic exercise and stress-management techniques like deep breathing and yoga.

Take healthy and well balanced diet. Take plenty of fluids.

You should laugh more or watch a comedy or read a funny book.

Please continue with lisinopril, as advised by your doctor, and you would get good results.

God bless you and take care.
