Comment:
My pressure fluctuates, and I can't seem to get it to stabilize. The upper number is often 145-155, and the lower stays around 75-85. While this is not terribly high, there are times when both numbers will "skyrocket" for awhile. Fortunately, the medication seems to be helping with that situation.

Comment:
As with aprevious reviewer, I too have had bugs bites become big welts with no scratching by me. I believe that a side effect may be hives. However the brief experiences of that have been worth the benefits. I found hydrocortisine (sp?) cream helped relieve the welts.

My husband has been taking Vasotec and he is doing very well on it. He just recently started having a problem when he is bitten by mosquitos and another bug he has whelps. They hurt and do not go away anytime soon. This has been happening for a week. Has anyone ever heard of this while taking Vasotec?

Comment:
I take two kinds of blood pressure medications and my pressure has remained high even with an increase. My pressure is very high and has been for the last 8 years. But I think because I am female the medical profession doesn't see it as a problem.
