User Comments:

For High Blood Pressure: “Was admitted to hospital 3/5/18 swelling in mouth and throat had to have breathing tube for for 2 days to keep alive. I have taken this Med for several years it has been well documented that there have been many cases with negative reactions with this medication even causing death. You should talk with your doctor about Lisinopril.”

Vin22 (taken for 6 months to 1 year) March 2, 2018

For High Blood Pressure: “I’ve been on Lisinopril/Hydrochlorothiazide for about 6 weeks. My BP was high (200/100) after an especially stressful day so I went to the Dr. to see about getting medication. I started on a dose of 12.5/20mg but had side effects, including dizziness and extreme exhaustion in the afternoon. Then my BP started getting a little too low. So my Dr. suggested I cut the dose in half. So far that seems to be working. I’m less dizzy and my BP is usually in the “ideal” range after I take it. However, I do have digestive problems that I never experienced before, so I think it’s related to the pills. I’m hoping to lose weight so I can come off this pill but for now will keep taking the half pill. The key thing is to check your BP at certain times to make sure you have the proper dose. Some Drs are pill pushers who create more problems for their patients than necessary. However, it IS important to keep your BP in check, so take medication if needed and monitor it closely.

For High Blood Pressure: “I’d been taking lisinopril 10 mg with 25 mg hydrochlorothiazide once per day for many years and it worked very well. Then Lupin changed the formulation and removed the ‘inactive’ ingredients (much smaller pill) around July 2017. Noticed hair falling out, blood pressure spikes, more fatique feeling. Changed to Watson pills, hair no longer falling out but blood pressure running to high, headaches. Not sure what’s the best move now, stronger dose or different type of BP medication.”

Paxplant (taken for 10 years or more) February 13, 2018

For High Blood Pressure: “I took lisinopril for years then all of a sudden one day I had heart palpitations for a week all day long along with a rapid heart rate, once I was taking off the drug they eventually stopped. But now I still get them every now and again. Has this happened to anyone else thats takin this medication?”
