    60 yrs old F - Had borderline high BP and have been taking 5 mg of Lisinopril per day for past month. I feel much better & it has controlled my BP, but the cough/post nasal drip may be the deal breaker on this one. Too bad, because othewise it has worked great for me. I also wonder what it does to the lungs over time.

    For over a year the drug worked very well. I had a SUDDEN SEVERE allergic reaction. My tongue began swelling and within an hour I could not talk or swallow. I spent an afternoon in the ER getting IV prednisone and benadryl followed by prednisone and benadryl orally for a week.

I changed doctors and the first thing he said after asking why I was there and what I was taking, "It's the Lisinopril. Let me give you something else!" My husband is a diabetic and has really bad high blood pressure. He ... Show Full Comment
