lunchtime. but the doctor increased lisinopril to 2 10mg 2x daily until I get new prescription of 20mg. So my question is how do I take the added 10mg lisinopril? With coreg in the morning? Or with coreg at night? doctor said 12 hrs apart, but I don’t understand that because that means in the middle of the night if 12 hrs from lunchtime lisinopril. Please clear up.

Unless you like taking these pills, your goal should be to treat the underlying cause – medications don’t do that.

You didn’t specify the reason for the medication – heart failure or just hypertension? It matters, but not that much.

The underlying cause of your problem is chronic dehydration.

Water is the most important substance the body needs to live. It’s made up of two “oceans”. One ocean is made up of fresh water and is located inside the cells. The other ocean contains salt and makes up the fluid area outside the cells. Good health requires a delicate balance between the two oceans.

When you become dehydrated, 66% of the water loss is from the cells (the fresh water “ocean”), 26% is from the area outside the cells (the salty “ocean”), and 8% is from the blood.

To restore the balance between the two oceans, a process called reverse osmosis kicks in. Reverse osmosis filters fresh water from the salty ocean and injects it into the cells (fresh water ocean). To do this, the arteries constrict so that a pressure increase will perform the injection process.

It’s this pressure increase that is monitored on the blood pressure gauge.

Doctors claim that high blood pressure is caused by excess salt. This isn’t true.

The body wasn’t designed with storage facilities to hold extra water. This is why we should drink 8 – 10 glasses of water each day. When you don’t drink enough water, the kidneys will start storing extra salt because salt retains water and this is the only other option the body has for holding onto whatever water it can get.

If salt causes high blood pressure, then all you should have to do is follow the doctor’s advice to avoid salt and the blood pressure should return to normal on its own – medication shouldn’t be needed. Take away the cause and the problem should correct itself – this is simple physics.

But the problem doesn’t correct itself, and medication is usually prescribed for the life of the patient. The reason for this is because salt isn’t the problem in the first place. If the person was to increase their water intake instead of reducing the salt intake so that the proper water/salt ratio was balanced, the blood pressure would, in fact, return to normal and medication would not be needed.

As stated above, whether heart failure of high blood pressure, it makes little difference where the cause is concerned. However, there is a slight difference in the treatment.

If you just have high blood pressure, click the link below and follow the guide for correcting dehydration that you’ll find just over halfway down the page.

If you have heart failure, follow the same guide, stop the salt intake for awhile. Introduce the water slowly to make sure that fluid collection in the body is not excessive or unmanageable.

The mechanism of sodium retention in these people is in overdrive mode. When water intake is increased gradually and more urine is being produced, the edema fluid (swelling) that is full of toxic substances will be flushed out, and the heart will regain its strength.

The second link goes to a very interesting page that fully explains high blood pressure – if you’re at all interested.

Ignore the water guy. He believes that he’s right and the world’s physicians are wrong. His advice is outright dangerous.

Simple answer. Take the lisinopril with the Coreg. Morning & night.
