    HP treatment - lisinopril

    Hello.
    Does anyone have experience with lisinopril, a drug used in HP treatment ? I wonder whether it interferes in any way with technical rebreather diving.

    I took it for a few months. My friend Richard Walker who is a hyperbaric physician told me it was no problem diving with lisinopril. Lisiniopril is used to treat high blood pressure.

    I take it for high blood pressure and have never had any problems with it. It is an ace inhibitor. If anyone finds a problem with it diving, I would be interested.

    Cheers, Walt

    I've been on Aceon for years with no problem. If I had to be admitted to a hospital then it would be Lisinopril. No worry with the med, but please keep the BP under control.

    Just FYI:

    There is some talk about ACE Inhibitors (like Lisinopril) inhibiting CoQ10 conversion. It might be useful to take CoQ10 if on an ACE inhibitor to protect the heart.

    Thanks a lot to everyone. I feel much better now :). Today I took a nice dive on Loredan wreck at Sardinia - first time on lisinopril and for the time being may definitely confirm no negative influence of the medicine.
