    Was taking Diovan and asked about something on the WalMart $4.00 list and was prescribed Lisinopril-HCTZ in the 20/12.5 dosage.

    Shortly after starting this med I began to have episodes of itching and swellings. My lips wound swell up or my fingers would swell and itch.

I was only on it three days, and thanks to reviews on this website & others I recognized quickly that I was experiencing the "rare" stomach problems, as well as dizziness when standing and also lightheadedness while walking outdoors. My blood pressure dropped too low the first day. I took the first dose in the ... Show Full Comment
