I have been on these 3 medicines for over 4 years now, and recently have had to have a pacemaker put in due to complete heart block. My (current) family Doctor refuses to believe that any of my other problems are due to this 3 pill combination. I truly feel that all of the side effects of these blood pressure meds has contributed to my sleep apnea/weight gain/coughing/bronchitis/asthma/allergies/sleeplessness/fatigue/weakness. Does anyone have any similar problems with these 3 drugs, and what is my chances of weaning myself off them. They scare me-A LOT. And some of the side effects of the furosemide-lisinopril combo is reduced heart rate, dizziness, fainting, or headaches. Which I had a lot. Could these symptoms be confused with a complete heart block?
And the Lasix (furosemide)-Coreg (carvedilol) combo can have the following side effects- This combo can cause dizziness, or feeling like you might pass out, weakness, fainting, I personally think that these 3 pills contributed to my heart problems. Any comments or suggestions or info would be most appreciated. I think that most Doctors just prescribe pills because they won't take the time to investigate alternatives to popping pills. Thanks in advance for any help here..View Thread
