I went in for a check up a couple days ago for joint paint, mentioned I'd been diagnosed w/ lupus several years ago. I am scheduled for lab work next week. Here is the problem: They took my b.p. and it registered 160/107. Was given Rx for lisinopril_HCTZ 20 12.5mg. Could this medication affect the blood test results for lupus? If the high b.p. is from kidney complications, will this medication have adverse affects? All the sites I have read concerning lisinopril list lupus and kidney disease as conditions to avoid with this medication. Help?
