Comment:
I have been taking it for 1 week and if I had not read the other reviews I would think I had a serious illness...I can hardly walk from the house to my car my legs are so weak and achy. Constant nausea, stomach pain and dizzy/faint feeling. I am thinking I had rather have high BP and risk a heart attack as to feel this way:(

Comment:
Was taking Diovan and asked about something on the WalMart $4.00 list and was prescribed Lisinopril-HCTZ in the 20/12.5 dosage. This worked for about a year then my BP started to drop below 100/65.

Comment:
I was on another medication for two decades that made me so tired that I refused to take it in the morning -- only at night. As a result my blood pressure was scary. Other meds have given my migraines, so I felt there was no hope. A new doctor put me on this one. I was not hopeful at first. In the beginning my blood pressure dropped low and made me dizzy in the morning, but it soon corrected. I ... Show Full Comment
