I've had a very bad cough, runny nose, dizzy spells, sneezing, sore throat etc. since the beginning of the year. I haven't slept well in ages, get occasional hot sweats (I'm 73) and have been on lisinopril for several years. I've had 3 lots of antibiotics, a steroid inhaler and chest x-ray which is clear. My dr. has now told me to leave off the lisinopril for a month.
