Customer Question
Hello... I've read much...

Hello... I've read much about the health benefits of drinking pomegranate juice, however I am currently taking 10mg of Lisinopril for high blood pressure. Is it okay to drink approximately one cup of pomegranate juice per day while on this medication? I've heard the interaction could drive blood pressure too low. Thank you!

Doctor's Assistant: When was last time you had a check up? Have you been feeling dizzy or lightheaded?

I haven't had a check up in a while, but certainly no dizziness or light head.

It does not necessarily lower blood pressure in every individual. If you are taking lisinopril at night take juice in the morning or vice versa to cause least interaction with the drug. And monitor your blood pressure for a week on this regime if your BP remains within normal range, you can go ahead.

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.
