Lisinopril-Hctz
Lisinopril/hydrochlorothiazide


Lisinopril-Hctz is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Lisinopril-Hctz is a combination of two drugs (an ACE inhibitor and a thiazide water pill /diuretic). Lisinopril works by relaxing blood vessels, causing them to widen. The thiazide diuretic increases the amount of urine you make, therefore decreasing excess water and salt in your body. High blood pressure reduction helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems.

ALTERNATE NAMES

Prinzide, Zestoretic

Reason: high blood pressure 208/108 wasn't aware it was this high! Date: 14 July 2009
Side Effects
little tired in the beginning, little dizzy not bad for a couple of times in first day.

Additional Thoughts
It worked on me within two hours after taking it and stabilized my B.P. from there on. I was rather surprised how well the lowest dose worked for me. I am also dieting and eating more fruits and vegetables, whole grain and fish, swimming, this may have enhanced the pill. My plan is to continue with my healthier lifestyle and my goal is to be off the pills in about 6 months. My doctor told me this is possible if I keep up my change in lifestyle. I feel a whole lot better! I hear black walnuts make your veins more elastic, I have added those too.
