I was on Lisinopril for 4 years. At first I had a mild cough, then in the last year I started having a gagging cough that sometimes made me throw up. I was coughing so hard that I would wet myself. Doctor keep treating me for sinus infections. Went to a new doc and he took me of the drug. Cough and gagging stopped in two days! If you are having these systems tell your doctor to take you OFF!

I have high BP and CHF which stands for congestive heart failure. I'm 33. I almost died, but I'm recovering.

Took this drug for two years with no problems then one night I woke up at 5 am and couldn't breath or talk because my tongue was swollen so bad. Went to the ER and they determined it was this drug and kept me all day for observation. Went back to Lasix since I also needed a water pill and this helps both problems.

Comment:
My cardiologist prescribed lisinopril 5mg daily to reduce my blood pressure. It seems to be working; however, after taking the drug for about 30 days I suddenly find myself with blood clots in my right leg. I have never had clots or any clotting issues in the past. I cannot prove that lisinopril is the cause, but nothing else has changed recently that would explain the clots. I am a 61 year-old ma ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have been taking it for 3 weeks now; and the only thing I seem to suffer from is a dull ache in my lower back area. I'm assuming this is in the kidney area. My BP readings have fallen to normal levels and below; and my MD is happy with the data I've collected thus far. I get an occasional cough during the day; but nothing like other people are describing, thankfully. I sometimes feel a l ... Show Full Comment
