Q.

can I stop lisinopril cold turkey

I was given this drug when I suffered a mild stroke. I am 66 yrs. old and otherwise in good health. I believe this was given as a "preventive" measure" and I wish to stop taking it.

Hi It would be best for you if you come off it slowly, if your on 10mg, first week do 7.5, next week 5 next week 2.5 till your off it, this way you can keep a n=mental note on how your doing, and the same after your off it.

It would be the best way for you to go.

And if you can, keep your doctor informed.

Good Luck
