Welcome to icliniq.com.
I would like to know her age, other medical conditions, and present medicines. Fainting needs to be evaluated as it can recur and cause serious problems. If she is still feeling unwell, or having giddiness (a tendency to fall), or lost consciousness, you should get her to the emergency room.
In the emergency room, they will be able to check your blood pressure, heart rate, and basic blood tests. If you are back to normal, then you can meet your primary care physician in the clinic at the earliest. You can also call your primary care physician office to check with them as they will be aware of your previous medical issues and current medicines. I hope this helps.
Thank you doctor,
She is on 20 mg Lisinopril daily. She had some alcohol and was walking to her bed when she fainted. She is not nauseated, she is alert. No confusion. I do not think I can get her to a car. What symptoms should I look for to indicate that she could be in danger?
Welcome back to icliniq.com.
Signs of danger include headache, nausea, vomiting, vertigo (spinning sensation), slurred speech. Keep her well hydrated and give some fruit juice. If she becomes drowsy or faints again or develop any of the symptoms I mentioned above, I will recommend going to the emergency room.
