    Hi coleevans! Yes, it’s okay to take it for elevated blood pressure. This medication is actually used for treating chest pain, high blood pressure and heart attack. However, if you have persistent high blood pressure, it would be best to consult with your doctor so you will be provided with a medication regimen that could help you manage your hypertension.

    Lisinopril usually start to kick in within 1 hour. During this time your blood pressure will start to go down. However, it would take 6 hours for this drug to reach its maximum effects. If your blood pressure does not go back to normal during the 1st hour, don’t worry. Give it another 5 hours and check your bp again if it’s back to normal. Though, considering that you had just been started with this medication, there is a high chance that your doctor started you on a low dose and will increase it gradually. The best thing you could do now is to monitor your blood pressure daily and see if it has become stable. If it has, you may proceed with your physical exam with no worries..

    Lisinopril is in a class of medications called angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. It works by decreasing certain chemicals that tighten the blood vessels, so blood flows more smoothly and the heart can pump blood more efficiently. It is used alone or in combination with other medications to treat high blood pressure and heart failure. It is also used to improve survival after a heart attack.

    Lisinopril comes as a tablet to take by mouth and is usually taken once a day.

    Your doctor will most likely start you on a low dose of lisinopril and gradually increase your dose.

    Premature ejaculation happens when a man reaches orgasm and ejaculates too soon – this could be within a minute of penetration and unable to delay ejaculation during sex almost all the time.

    Dapoxetine is initially created as an antidepressant but the drug’s fast-acting property made it suitable to be utilized in treating premature ejaculation. This medication is safe and effective and works by increasing the time it takes for men to ejaculate. The drug functions by increasing the activity of serotonin in the brain. High serotonin activity increases ejaculation time, while low serotonin activity shortens it. When this medication is taken 1 to 3 hours before intercourse, it increases a man’s sense of control over his ejaculation for up to two hours. Thus, men and their partner are able to have more intimate time in bed without frustrations.

    Side effects include, but are not limited to the following:

    COMMON SIDE EFFECTS
    1. increased blood pressure
    2. flushing
    3. excessive sweating
    4. tiredness
    5. blurring of vision
    6. Unusual dreams

    LESS COMMON SIDE EFFECTS
    1. teeth grinding
    2. dizziness after exertion
    3. increased or decreased heartrate
    4. failure to ejaculate
    5. dilated pupils
