    Was on 50mg for many years. B/P good & HB slow 50-60. 3 yrs ago reduced to 25mg. Still about the same. Recently told to cut pill in half & take every 12 hrs. Still about the same. Experience some shortness of breath and fatigue. I can live with that as I am still able to be quite active. Also caused ED. Thank God for viagra. LOL

Recently I have tapered off and trying to discontinue it totally, my doctor has switched me to lisinopril 40 mg/day. The very first day I cut my dose in half I noticed my acid reflux was much better.
