Good morning Gransnetters. Sorry to bring up another Coronavirus issue when we are all heartily sick of the subject. I
I was wondering if any of you have had any advice about continuing with this drug in the light of the Coronavirus epidemic.
I have taken it for many years for high bp and heart failure symptoms but have just read some articles giving a possible link between taking Lisinopril and getting a worse doze of Coronavirus due to changes it makes in our cells.
I will probably ring my doctor next week for advice and of course everyone's medical history is different but I was just wondering if anyone had been advised to stop Lisinopril or replace it with something else while we have this virus amongst us. I haven't seen a doctor in more than 4 years but feel I should maybe clarify this issue. I will repost if I do ring my doctor and get any clarification on whether the drug makes the virus worse.
Of course everyone's situation is different and what might be advised for one person may not be suitable for another. If I do get any info next week I will repost. Thanks in advance for any light anyone has on this.
