Hey Amy! Did your nephrologist take you off Lisinopril? have you tried the lowest dose of it at 10 mg? I was taking 40 mg and now I am down to 20 mg and my BP stays around 110/60, somedays a little less or somedays a little more. It has gotten as low at 80/52, I was told it was ok unless I started experiencing symptoms of low BP, but its helping with the protien a little bit. Maybe you can talk to yoru doc about trying another ACE inhibitor and see if that would help with the protein???

I'm on it. 20mil. x2. but I have CHF. I was wondering what is harder on your body? the lisinpril or the cellcept? I would think the cellcept but I didn't go to dr. school. Then again a lot depends on what other drugs you are on. I know there are a lot of things you shouldn't take with beta blockers but my dr. says it's safer to give them to me then not to. Hopefully you and your dr. will get it figured out. I'll be waiting to hear.
