    LoPressor was given to me by my Doctor for HBP. Also, Adalat CC. I immediately slowed down on the bike. It felt like I gained 20 pounds. I stopped the LoPressor, voila, I speeded up again. I have dropped the LoPressor with no ill effects on my HBP or HR. Have any of you had a similar experience?

    well lopressor is a beta-blocker that is solely designed to limit your HR. it is more vital in people who have arrythmias than for use in simple hypertention. Lisinopril works peripherally rather than directly on the heart muscle itself (like lopressor)
    lisinopril limits an enzyme in the kidney that causes hypertension, so the effects and side effects are less severe.
    I have enough words to get me into trouble, but not enough to get me out of trouble.

    From what I gather, Prinivil (Lisinopril), is the way to go. I will ask my Physician about this product my next checkup which is in February.

    After my bypass I was on Betablockers (Atenolol) and it affected my Bike riding. I could not get my HR above 130, and even at that low rate I was shatterred. I was taking it daily in the mornings so hit on a regime of taking one the night before a ride instead of in the morning. 9 weeks after the bypass I did a 40 miler on the road and it took in quite a few hills but kept HR to 140 and I was fine. On one of them I decided to go for it and got my HR up to 165, and then passed a roadie, so pushed harder to stay in front of him. Reached my Age Max of 172, and waited at the checkpoint at the top of the hill till my HR dropped to 120. Seemed to take ages but it did come down. Then over the next year I cut the Beta's until I was off them completely. No problems, and still get HR up to my current max of 165 somewhere on a ride, but cannot compete with the youngsters who have a max of 200ish

    Lisinopril is only one of a class of drugs called ACE Inhibitors (angiotensin conversion enzyme inhibitors) . So, ask your doc about ACE Inhibitors in general, Lisinopril is very commonly prescribed.

    ACE Inhib. make some people cough badly, so they cannot tolerate them, in which case there are newer ones which operate similarly but are more expensive (haven't gone generic yet), but you don't cough. I think they are called "Angiotensin Update Inhibitors"?

    Thank you for your informative post. Patients need to be well-informed, because not all doctors are.
