My doctor has me up to 40mg per day of Lisinopril, and 5mg of Amlodipine. After taking this increased dosage for 13 days, my blood pressure readings were fantastic, and stayed that way for 9 days. Then the readings started coming up, and I started having some breathing problems. I wondered if my daily banana could cause problems since I read there can be a problem with potassium and Lisinopril.
Can eating bananas every day have an adverse effect when one is taking Lisinopril?

Eating bananas daily with lisinopril may have an adverse reaction for you. I would suggest that you see your doctor, especially since you have breathing problems.

I've been taking it for about 3 weeks with great results except for this bothersome side effect which I assume is from the Lisinopril.
