[QUOTE=margiemc;5157567]My Dr.has me on coreg cr 40mg[/QUOTE]

Congrats to your doctor for prescribing Coreg. Coreg is one of the best medications for treating high blood pressure. However... both Coreg and Lisinipril come with some side effects, especially tiredness and weakness. Are you having a problem with being overly tired from the medications?

[QUOTE=margiemc] ... and added the lisinipril 20mg. I think its too strong as it makes my blood pressure too low.[/QUOTE]

Blood Pressure medications tend to lower the blood pressure more at some times, than at other times. So...... we high blood pressure patients sometimes have to suffer from very low readings during a few hours of the day, in order to maintain lower, more healthy blood pressure levels throughout the rest of the day.

Have you been tracking how well your Coreg and Lisinipril are working throughout the day?

As an example of how much blood pressure changes during the day, here are some of my readings, by hour of day, for the year 2008. Notice that my lowest average bp, for 2008, was at 8am. It was 109/64 based on 145 readings. My highest reading time was at 5pm (hour 17). It was 129/76 based on 60 readings.

Each line contains the hour of day (1-24, or 1am thru 12am), the bp reading and the number of readings at that hour.
