For High Blood Pressure "Went to see doctor for edema in lower legs had BP 148/98. Prescribed 20mg. Been taking it for a little over a month. Only side effect is nearly blacking out when I stand up to fast. Swelling took a few weeks to go away and BP is stabilized around 101/82. This is the first time ever taking an ACE inhibitor. I lost aound 8lbs of excess fluid as well. Paternal family history of high BP. 40yr old female"

For High Blood Pressure "The cough with all the congestion is annoying. Everyone is always asking if I'm ill. My blood pressure is still averaging 190/124. BPM are around 90-135. I have been on 2.5 mg for 4 months with no change. I'm a 48 year old white female in a high pressured medical career. No health insurance so my Dr. writes me Linsinopril because it is free. My next appointment is in 2 weeks. I'm sure he will make changes."

For Migraine Prevention "The Doctor gave me 10 MG Lisinopril for high blood pressure - I never had a headache for over a month. it was great but I developed a bad cough so he took me off. I miss not having the headaches. I think I was taking to high a dose. I'd like to try a smaller mg."

For High Blood Pressure "Does a fine job lowering my blood pressure and I feel much better. The cough is irksome. Having a cough drop in the far back of my mouth tends to relieve it, and thank goodness you can find sugar free ones now. Still, considering bladder control problems and the way the cough disrupts my sleep, I'll probably switch to another medicine."
