For High Blood Pressure: "Before this pill I had 140/90, doctor suggested to take 5 mg of this drug, took first day at night... no changes, next morning I was 170/103 (never experience high before), felt so miserable, migraines, lightheaded, I thought I was dying, dizziness, I even threw up for the first time in my life... called my doctor and he prescribed metoprolol, it worked way better... I am now exercising and losing weight to get rid of these drugs soon."

For High Blood Pressure: "Started taking this 6 months ago for hbp. I have no energy and could literally lay around all day. I'm in bed by 8pm wake up still exhausted. After reading the reviews here I have decided to stop taking it...period. I feel much better with hbp!"

For High Blood Pressure: "I have the type of BP that will shoot up in the doctor's office, even if I go in for a hang nail. Yes, it was somewhat high at home 130's/80-90. I was put on 20, and hated that the quality of my life is terrible due to exhaustion/tiredness/sleepiness from the pill. I insisted on trying 10 mg, but of course my BP jumped up in the doctor's office. I'm back on 20, but I don't know if it's worth living this way. The tiredness makes me depressed and makes me feel old. When I quit the pills, the sleepiness goes away. I'm not really overweight, but I'm going to try to lose more to see if that helps. I do exercise, but in the winter, I often don't do as much and the exhaustion doesn't help."

For High Blood Pressure: "Being on that med kept my bp right for a long time,but it also caused my kidneys to fail.So make sure you have your M.D.pay close attention to your BUN and your creatnine levels.You pay attention to it as well.All beta blockers cause a problem if you stay on the same one for an extended period of time.Don't let the Dr.tell you nothing about what you should and shouldn't take.Research and tell him no if it aint for you."

For High Blood Pressure: "Works well! Went from around 150/90 to 120/70 on this med. 20 mg a day. I should note that when under some stressors it didn't work as well, like hospitalized with pneumonia, but they gave me something else during my stay to help get it down again."

For Diabetic Kidney Disease: "Started this drug in January, 2016. My Primary Care prescribed this drug, because he said it was new on the market, and would help diabetes kidney issues. My blood pressure is normal from taking Cardizem. Started with coughing issues in January. Dr prescribed 10 days of Prednisone with Mucinex DM and Probiotics. Still kept coughing. Sometimes the cough was proactive/dry. Called my Doctor on Feb 22, 2016 because my left ear stopped up for a couple of hours and still have the coughing issues. Prescribed another bout of Prednisone. Went to see Primary Care on Fri 26th Feb, 2016 with coughing issues and wheezing which isn't good for my COPD. Did the nebulizer. Didn't work, so now I am in the Hospital with lung issues."

For High Blood Pressure: "I have been in 20mg for about a yr now. My blood pressure was like 145/97 prior to taking it. Now I read around 125/85. So in that affect, it did lowet my bp but it could still be better. My issue has been the extreme fatigue. I am seriously tired all the time. Like I can go to bed at 8, wake up tired at 6:30am.. Be tired all day.. Take a nap from 12-2pm and still go back to sleep tired at 8 pm. This is driving me nuts and has caused me to gain weight due to lack of activity."

For High Blood Pressure: "I'm a 60 yo male and have been on 10mg Lisinopril for around 1 year, along with Coreg CR. The Coreg wasn't doing its job completely so my PC Dr. added Lisinoprel. It dropped my BP somewhat, looking at making some adjustments in the near future. I've had no side effects, except that, from reading the many reviews, developed an occasional deep dry cough ( I thought it was my seasonal allergies). Not sure what my Dr. will prescribe, but the medicine seems to be doing its job."

For High Blood Pressure: "Been on lisinopril for a year and a half. First day of taking it I felt a little dizzy but it was just that day. I do have a dry cough that comes and goes but I feel that's a small price to pay for good health. I do find that drinking plenty of water helps to keep the dry cough away. I was very skeptical about taking this drug at first but now I'm glad I did."

For High Blood Pressure: "I have been on Linsinopril 5mg for about 2 years, it does the job to bring down my BP readings but much below the normal range, and I have had serious headaches during these times the kind headaches that I have never experienced before. It's just horrible, I can not function normal daily life anymore. I thought to stop take this medicine but the doctors say that I have to be on it to control proteins in my urine. I am feeling miserable."

For High Blood Pressure: "Before taking lisinopril my BP was around 150/105. After about 3 weeks it is 120/88 so far. I experienced a itching sensation around my neck and my face felt like it was on fire the first week but those side effects subsided and stopped. I believe in this product because it is working just fine."

For High Blood Pressure: "I have been taking this for about 6 weeks now. I had headaches for about a week initially but they have since gone away. However, I have had what I though was bad allergies or a cold for about a month now. After reading some of these reviews and the side affects I believe it is from this medication. Of course my doctor which I visited Friday did not tell me this could be from the medication. It is controlling my BP but don't like the aches, pains, sneezing and coughing that has accompanied it."

For Heart Failure: "Have been on a combination of Lisinopril 5mg and Acebutolol 200mg daily for 21 years, due to valve leakage. BP and rate without meds is 112/72 (78), with this combination 94/54 and (56) is "normal" for me. Resting can go as low as 86/46 (48) without issue. Works VERY well to reduce BP and consequently leakage. I do have some issues with stomach acid, mild ED, Raynaud's, and occasional light headedness on standing; BUT cannot confirm that most of those are solely related to Lisinopril, and can be counteracted with other meds. Did "bottom out" once when also taking Cialis, Temazepam, Cannabis and cracked a couple ribs in the process. Just be careful how fast you stand up, and avoid getting dehydrated."

For High Blood Pressure: "I began taking Lisinopril in August of 2015 and immediately started experiencing a terrible cough and some lung issues. After 3 1/2 months it has worsened and I have been back to my doctor numerous times with a bronchial infection which has required me to be on antibiotics and steroids for four dosages. My MD recommended I see a Pulmonologist which I have and had a CT scan along with putting me on three different inhalers. Recently I had another lung infection and went to a local GP and have found that all of my issues are from the Lisinopril - blurry vision, extreme weight gain, Bronchiectasis which is severe."

For High Blood Pressure: "I am a person who worries about adverse side effects and almost passed on taking this drug based on reviews. Sure glad that I did not. In 1-day with a 5mg tablet, my blood pressure readings went from an average of 150-160 over 90-110, to 128/82 with a pulse rate of 72. I've experienced a slight dizziness and cough, which might actually be seasonal allergies as they were present before I began taking this drug."

NO SIDE EFFECTS AND A LOW PRIC (taken for less than 1 month) December 9, 2015

For High Blood Pressure: "I've been taking lisinopril 5 mg once daily since April of this year In July my endocrinologist increased me to 5 mg twice daily. In October I started getting headaches At first I thought it was just seasonal allergies and sinus problems The headaches have gotten horrible I can barely stand them and sometimes they make me dizzy I haven't really noticed a big difference in my blood pressure either so today I'm contacting my endocrinologist today to see if she can make a recommendation for something else I didn't realize that headaches were a side effect of this medication until I logged on to find out if it was possible it could be the lisinopril I have never experienced headaches like this"

For High Blood Pressure: "At home my blood pressure was 127/80, but at the doctor I have 146/90 every visit. Doctor disregarded home readings and put me on 5 mg of lisinopril. I started having trouble finishing my daily exercise routine, developed a cough, and my bp shot up to 171/119. I have anxiety without meds and I became more anxious than I've ever been. I went back to my doctor who accused me of lying about the previous home readings, prescribed me a higher dose of lisinopril and sent me to the ER. ER did an EKG, said I was fine and sent me home. The higher dose now is still resulting in a higher BP, with the addition of terrible headaches. I do not think I will consent to this medication again when I see my doctor in a few days"

For High Blood Pressure: "I have been taking this and its ruining me. I'm always dizzy and feeling like I'm about to fall out our pass out on the floor at home and at work, it's caused me to miss alot of work cause of the dizziness and uneasy feeling. I don't even want to take this anymore. Plus it makes me not so accepting of my finance with sex.. What kind of life is that. I believe this is the wrong medication fit me."

For High Blood Pressure: "I'm always afraid to try new medication. When I got the courage to take Lisinopril I was shocked at the very few side effects I had. I did experience pretty terrible migraines for a few days after starting but that was it. Although if I miss a dose I do feel malaise as if I'm coming down with the flu and my body feels hot. I've taken it with and without food and had zero stomach upset."

For High Blood Pressure: "I have been on this medication now for 11 days and appear to be very lucky as have no side effects but the only thing I am encountering is I don't seem to be losing weight, even thought I have cut out all the sweets, cakes, bread etc . Maybe it is the medication. I was doing great before I started.... Anyone esle had this experience."

For High Blood Pressure: "Been on it 20mg now for 3 months. Seems to be working. Got to be careful bending over and coming back up quickly, lightheadedness. Also the "lisinopril cough" is kind of annoying at times."
