While my BP wasn't extremely high reluctantly, I started taking Lisnopril. I did not read about side effects until one week in. Wanted to make sure I was able to pinpoint changes.

I take Lisinopril for high blood pressure. Within the past six weeks I have developed a constant dry cough. Is this a side effect of this medication?

Brain fog. They put me on this after colon surgery. It made me very tired and really did not care about anything. I tried to get my Doc to change but it took me 2 years. It was a miserable 2 years and I had no idea this was it.
