Big NSV! Off of a medication!

Monday, January 14, 2013

It is a long story... short version: I am off of Lisinopril- my HBP medication!!! yea rah! emoticon
Now just taking a water pill. I have wanted to be off of it for years and now I am!

Long story-I opened my new medications and found that the dosage had changed. I was to cut my pill in half. well anyone that knows how little l Lisinopril is- it just crumbles. The pill was a combination of lisinopril and HCL (water).This was new so I called my doctor today. Found out that it had been changed in July. I was there in October- they just asked me if I was taking my medicine as directed. Guess they should tell you what that is at that time:)
I told them that cutting it in half just does not work. The nurse called me and we talked. She called me back and said that because of that problem I could go off of either.
That was a no brainier! so they called me in a new prescription for just that. Now my goal is to be off of that by the end of the year!

Remember to do something good for you and the environment today! emoticon
