Customer Question

Second opinion] Blood pressure is 144/93. Can't remember if I took my lisiniprol about 6 hours ago or not. I had a stroke 11 years ago. Should I take another lisiniprol (10 mg) or wait until tomorrow?JA: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?Customer: No allergies that I know of. I take lisinopril 10 mg one per day, levothyroxine.137mg one per day,sertraline 100 mg one per day and omeprazole 20 mg per day, zantac once a day.JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: GERD and hypothyroid. The massive stroke was in 2005 and hemmorragic. No obvious residual effects after a year of recovery. Two days ago I had a similar situation. HIgh blood pressure and dizziness, but slept it off. Took 1/2 hydrocodone at that time because of a bad headache.

the elevation of your blood pressure is mild since we recommend a blood pressure less than 140/90. I would recommend waiting until tomorrow and take your regular dose. I would not recommend taking an extra dose tonight.
