I have high BP and CHF which stands for congestive heart failure. I'm 33. I almost died, but I'm recovering. If you ever feel a certain way about your health, don't hesitate, get the help you need immediately. This medicine is new for me, and I am still adjusting. It works and I like it. My BP is lower then usually and that's why I have an appointment to see my doctor. Anyway be s ... Show Full Comment

Took this drug for two years with no problems then one night I woke up at 5 am and couldn't breath or talk because my tongue was swollen so bad. Went to the ER and they determined it was this drug and kept me all day for observation. Went back to Lasix since I also needed a water pill and this helps both problems.

Comment:
My cardiologist prescribed lisinopril 5mg daily to reduce my blood pressure. It seems to be working; however, after taking the drug for about 30 days I suddenly find myself with blood clots in my right leg. I have never had clots or any clotting issues in the past. I cannot prove that lisinopril is the cause, but nothing else has changed recently that would explain the clots. I am a 61 year-old ma ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have been taking it for 3 weeks now; and the only thing I seem to suffer from is a dull ache in my lower back area. I'm assuming this is in the kidney area. My BP readings have fallen to normal levels and below; and my MD is happy with the data I've collected thus far. I get an occasional cough during the day; but nothing like other people are describing, thankfully. I sometimes feel a l ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Lisiniprol/Hydrochlorothiazide has caused me to cough constantly and it is a severe cough. I cough til I vomit and I always have the dry heaves. My vocal chords are totally damaged to the point where I can no longer raise my voice and basic speaking is almost impossible most of the time. Sometimes I feel like I have swallowed broken glass. Sleep has become almost impossible because the coughing is ... Show Full Comment
