I was taking Lisinopril for 4 years and developed severe stomach pain. I thought it was heartburn, but it was the drug Lisinopril swelling my intestine. The day I stopped taking it, my stomach was 95% better. I need a safe alternative. Please don't respond and recommend an alternative if you haven't taken the drug more than 3.5 years. I need to lower my blood pressure and just need a safe alternative. Of course dizziness is a given with these types of drugs.
