BP still running in the 140 to 160 range so Bendroflumethiazide 2.5 added which was the drug from hell made me impotent, somewhat indifferent to life in general and I could not venture out without knowing where the nearest urinal was and it d ...

    I'm actually quite surprised at all of the side effects that other users are experiencing. I have not experienced any, that I'm aware of. I have been taking 5mg of Lisinopril for 14 months now. My BP was high, but not severe. My BP now is around the 120/80 range give or take 10 on either. I guess I'm one of the success stories. I felt like a new man once I was put on Lisinopril.

    It was prescribed to me to supplement Diltiazem to help lower blood pressure. It was effective in doing so, but after a few months caused a horrible hacking cough that made me absolutely miserable. I couldn't even sleep. I discontinued it about two weeks ago now and the cough still remains. I'm not sure it is getting better.
