Finally found the name of it. can I take this blood pressure med with my suboxone? I'm pretty scared cause read suboxone lowers your blood pressure and mine is still high as a kite. Any feedback would be great!!!

Hi RonnieSR -

So, first, YES you can take that as I do.

When I started suboxone, I had moderate - high BP. I always have run high - but ignored it.

Well, about 2 months into suboxone, I was in the office, and my BP was something like 159/115 or something. He took it a couple more times, and the bottom number was always over 110.

So, he gave me a script for the entry level of linsonipril with HCTZ (a diuretic). What is amazing, is that the next visit my BP was down to 138/85 or so. I started walking briskly 4-6 times a week - and this last visit was 118/78.

He was surprised the small dose did that much, but I really don't care. It works, no perceived side effects or interactions, and I don't worry as much about the long term bad effects of ignoring hypertension.

Hope this helps. I'd be on it today if I were you!

Hi Ronnie! Yes, I agree with Lathedude....If your B/P is too high, you need to be on medication for it. I do not have any problems with hypertension myself, but my Mom and Dad both do. I know with my mother it took a little while to get the "right" med at the "right" dose which was a little frustrating, but after a few trials her blood pressure is well controlled.
I don't have any specific knowledge of B/P meds with Suboxone, but I can't think it would be a problem. It's reassuring that Lathedude is on that same B/P med with his Sub and has done well with it, so I'm thinking you'll be fine too. You certainly don't want to let your high blood pressure go untreated....too much damage can be done.
Good luck with the new med and I hope everything else is going well for you!

Lisinopril treats high blood pressure (hypertension) and congestive heart failure, as well as improves survival after a heart attack. It belongs to a group of drugs called ACE inhibitors.
