... my kidneys... I was sent to another doc for my disc problem and he wanted to double the Lisinopril... I"m like what the hell.. I do have asthma and know I need a calcium channel blocker I am retired now but is medicine changing this fast?
I'm rather confused on this because Lisinopril is actually used in many cases of kidney diseases and as a preventative to protect the kidneys in people newly diagnosed with diabetes. I would talk to your physician to make sure there wasn't a miscommunication. Otherwise, I would go to a new physician altogether if your are sure that is what the physician meant because that is certainly not the case but quite the opposite. I hope this helps! Contact me with any further questions!
