Last week, I switched pharmacies. The new pharmacist would not fill one of my prescriptions because she said that I was taking two meds that do the same thing, Valsartin (Diovan) and Lisinopril. These two meds were prescribed by two different doctors. (Each knew about the other, but neither wanted me to stop taking the one they prescribed.) since Lisinopril is currently off the market (something to do with a bad smell reported in the packaging), she filled the Valsartan. So, I have not taken Lisinopril for three days, so far. I will address the question at my next appointment with my cardiologist two weeks from now.

... MS patients using Lisinopril. I wondered since I already take a blood pressure med, would it make sense to switch to this for my blood pressure?
