I have white coat syndrome and take 5 mgs lisinopril  but sure not helping with white coat. My last Dr. visit  my B/P was 201/77, normally 160-170/70's. I went grocery shoppoing came homethan was 105/56 so I did not take the med.
I quit smoking 10 months ago and am gaining so much weight, 20+ pounds so I am walking weather permitting to try to lose. I walked a mile last night, came in the house took my B/p and it was 96/47 my pulse was 97, as my pulse went down my B/P went up, in about 1/2 hour i was 112/56, with a bradycardia rate of 56.  Is this normal to have a low b/P like this after walking my B/p does drop this low at times since i am taking the lisinopri . I am concened about this. I am a 69 year old female.
Thanks for any help, Palmy

I would certainly discuss this with your Dr.  I know when my BP is up my Dr. requests I stop in at the clinic once a week for a few weeks just to see what my BP is.  Then it is put into my chart. 
Lisinopril also comes in a 2.5 Mg dose - perhaps your dose is to strong.

Thanks Kitt, Seeems like my Dr. does not believe me although I have taken my cuff to her office to make sure it is accurate, she sees the past b/p but still thinks I have high b/p. I see a cardio once a year and his opinion is if you monitor your b/p and 85% of your home measurements are good than no need to worry. He said If it goes up and stays up than you need some help.
