Side Effect - Looking for help for my husband. He had medicated stints placed on Thursday. He has since come home and gotten severe rash over his entire body. The put him on Plavix, Lisinorpil, Matroprolol, & Zocor. Looks like the Lisinopril could be the problem or even the Plavix. We have been to the ER 2 times in less than 24 hours. Any suggestions??? Thanks

Let me think. Plavix is a blood thinner so he won't develop clots. Lisinopril is an ACE inhibitor for lowering his BP. Metoprolol is a beta-blocker to keep his heart calm and also lowers BP. Zocor is a cholesterol lowering medication. All of the above are common meds that have proven themselves effective over time. None of the most common side effects are a rash, but anything is possible. Is your husband having any other symptoms besides the rash? What did the ER docs have to offer related to his rash?
All I can say is apparently the ER docs didn't think his rash was an emergent situation or he wouldn't have been sent home twice.
Best suggestion would be to contact the cardiovascular doc and let them decide what to do, if you haven't already.
Good luck a.d best wishes on resolving this troublesome problem.
