Really haven't had any bad side sffects and it brought my blood pressure under control. Dr. wants to switch me to lisinopril now because I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, but I am scared to switch after reading the reviews on here!

The side effect has been "dizziness". Positive impact on reducing blood pressure.

Comment:
It worked great for my blood pressure, but the three main side effects were lightheaded/dizziness, tingling in my legs (like they were asleep) mostly in the upper region, and erectile dysfunction. The ED was severe at first, then seemed to ease up. I got off this medicine, and three weeks later the change was dramatic...as far as the ED goes.
