Elizabeth - If you look at the side effects listed for Enalapril you will find the following: "abdominal pain, diarrhea, dizziness, fatigue, headache, loss of appetite, nausea and vomiting, chest pain, dizziness or fainting, numbness or tingling in the hands or feet, rash, and a sore or swollen throat. In rare instances, liver dysfunction and skin yellowing (jaundice) have been reported with ACE inhibitors. In susceptible individuals ACE inhibitors may reduce kidney function."
So your new BP med could indeed be the culprit. Your weakness'faint feeling could be that your blood pressure has gotten a lot lower. If you have a BP machine at home, check your pressure. Also, it sometimes just takes some time to acclimate to the medications. Best bet is to let your doctor know about
these new symptoms.
