Administration advice :
-Should be given as a single daily dose.
-May be given with or without food.
-In some patients with heart failure who have normal or low blood pressure, additional lowering of systemic blood pressure may occur with this drug. This effect is anticipated and is not usually a reason to discontinue treatment. If hypotension becomes symptomatic, a reduction of dose or discontinuation of may be necessary.
-This drug is indicated as adjunctive therapy with diuretics and digitalis for treating heart failure.
-Following first time MI, all ACE inhibitors, at comparable appropriate dosages, appear to be equally effective for reducing mortality and recurrent MI rates.
-Prior to therapy, patients at high risk of symptomatic hypotension such as patients with salt depletion with or without hyponatremia, hypovolemia or those receiving vigorous diuretic therapy should have these conditions corrected. Renal function and serum potassium should be monitored.
-If it is not feasible to discontinue diuretic therapy prior to starting lisinopril, the patient should be closely monitored for several hours following the initial dose of this drug, and until the blood pressure has stabilized. The antihypertensive effects of lisinopril and diuretics used in combination are approximately additive.
-Achievement of optimal blood pressure reduction may require 2 to 4 weeks of therapy.
-Acute myocardial infarction: in addition to this drug, patients should receive, if appropriate, standard treatments, such as thrombolytics, aspirin, and a beta-blocker.
-Antihypertensive effects of this drug are maintained during long-term therapy. Abrupt withdrawal has not been associated with a rapid increase in blood pressure, or a significant increase in blood pressure compared to pretreatment levels.
Patient advice :
-This drug may be taken with or without food, but should be taken at the same time each day.
-This drug may impair your ability to drive or operate machinery.
You may wonder why then, the Golden Milk recipe is suggested as a good method to take turmeric in a drink. This is because the turmeric is gently simmered in the milk/water mixture first. This greatly improves the bio-availability – even when taken alone without a meal it will be beneficial. Black pepper and coconut oil (or other healthy fat) is added as well. I would suggest you prepare your tea by simmering it first, let it cool then drink it as you like it. As to how many almonds as a fat source…I haven’t an idea at all. It is thought that roughly half or less the amount of turmeric to oil is sufficient (ie 1/4 tsp. turmeric 1/8 or less of fat/oil).
