Hydrochlorothiazide-Lisinopril, aka Lisinopril-Hydrochlorothiazide, is a combination drug prescribed to control high blood pressure. This medication has a warning on its label that reads “MAY CAUSE DROWSINESS OR DIZZINESS” in very large type and then goes on in smaller type with other warning information.
Now, what does it mean by dizziness? A search on dizziness took me to three very interesting articles:
- Dizziness – MayoClinic.com
- Dizziness – Medline Plus Medical Encyclopedia from the U.S. National Library of Medicine and the National Institute of Health
- Dizziness – eMedicineHealth
From these readings, I was impelled to read about a more precise type of dizziness that is called presyncope. I know; you’re so intrigued by this you want more. Right?
Continuing on, what is meant by presyncope? Take a look at these search results:
