Althought the medications do not interact between them, thety interact with food, that is one point, the other is tha a less serious side effect of Lisinopril is "cough", and this is causing you discomfort.
I suggest you speak to your Dr. about this side effect and also the more serious one uneven heartbeats, as you say it coincides with your cough.
All the best,
Hello crocuss, & welcome to the site. Many patients on lisinopril complain of a cough. It is listed as a side effect. The two together are not causing this. You need to speak with your doctor as there are many other HBP drugs to be treated with that do not cause a cough. Best Wishes...
These two drugs do not interact.
Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction to lisinopril: hives; severe stomach pain, difficult breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat. This is rare but can sometimes happen.
I developed a cough when I first started taking lisinopril years ago (am currently on 30 mg.). Sipping water helped to stop it from escalating. The cough eventually went away. It has been extremely helpful in controlling my blood pressure.
