My blood pressure was getting consistently high at an average of 145/95 and I have chronic kidney disease. After being put on lisinopril 10 mg, it dropped drastically to 85/55 and I was getting dizzy so we reduced it to 5mg. Worked fine for several weeks, but started dropping low again and I was put on 2.5 mg. My doctor said if I start feeling dizzy to quit taking it for a few days and when I see my bp start going up again, to start taking it again.
Does anyone else use their medicine only when they see a spike in blood or have stressful events which raise their bp? Then go off of it once it comes back down?
The thing is, I'm also using the meds to help with migraines and proteinuria so we don't want to change it as this med is particular to helping those issues.
Thanks for your advice
