Don’t drink caffeine!

How often does your BP shoot up like that? Phaeochromocytoma is a (rare!) condition where the adrenal gland releases too much catecholamine (adrenaline) and it causes episodes of very high BP, high pulse, nausea, anxiety, sweating.

Lisinopril is a very effective antihypertensive. So when you say your BP goes too low, the first question I would ask is: “are you symptomatic?” By that, I mean are you getting dizzy, light-headed, dim vision, or fainting? If not, then I would increase the dose. If you ARE getting symptoms, then I would add Hydrchlorothiazide (HCTZ) in combination. That simple additions can sometimes have dramatic improvements in BP control. An alternative, is to use an ACE receptor blocker (ARB) like Atacand, Diovan, Avapro, Cozaar or Tevetan. Or you could switch to a Calcium Channel Blocker, an Alpha receptor blocker, etc. There are a lot of choices out there. And finally, I would ask if there are associated events that could be triggering these episoeds, and how those events. Some of the others have suggested caffeine and a Pheo, I would add, stress, excessive salt intake, “energy drinks” and many weight-loss pills.

lisinopril is a very effective antihypertensive. however u may need to add a diuretic prefferably a thiazide diuretic to your drug regimen. also avoid smoking, caffeine, and fatty foods. try mild exercises daily and relaxation techniques.

5 mg of this drug is the very lowest drug—your doctor should be advised so that either this drug, or another stronger med can be prescribed. Obviously you need further consultation to switch to another drug.
