Blood Pressure Medication and Leakage

My GP has put me on blood pressure meds-Lisinopril and Diltiazem- and I underwent prostate removal six months ago. Leaking has been minimal, almost nil, up until now and I was wondering if anyone else has experienced something similar. On the way home from a walk I felt, well you know that feeling, a leak and found a huge wet spot on my trousers that bypassed the pad and to passersby probably looked horrible. This is not normal for me and is a huge, uncomfortable embarrassment. Any ideas out there?

I'm guessing one or both of your new medications is a diuretic and when you first start taking it, it will open the faucet until your system gets used to it.

I've been taking Lisinopril since before my Davinci surgery. I've been 99.9% dry since cath removal. Can always ask the Doc. Sorry about the embarrasing moment.

which is prinivil and a die-er-retic ( vitamin P as I call it ) and dont have issues with that.

Perhaps you are getting an infection - my doc/nurse warned me about that. something to consider.

best of luck

I had problems with coughing when I used Lisinopril. The doc changed me over to a combination Diovan/waterpill, but changed that to just a Diovan pill after I had surgery- I was passing enough water and didn't need help.

After rad finished I was on flowmax but my urine stream almost completely shut down so I stopped the flowmax and just used Ibprofen for swelling and the urine flow picked back up though it is still pretty thin.

I share this because I do believe meds do affect us and when I find bad side affects I quite the pill.

I just wish Eligard was in pill form- HA!! I would tell you where they would be right now!
