    I work in a high stress professional field. I was put on 30 mg of lisinopril, and within 2 months had gained over 20 pounds with my regular 3 mile a day walk and work out. I felt as though I was working thru a thick fog and lost a lot of ability to concentrate. I dropped off the foul stuff, and feel like I am re-involved with life again. A good cigar with an after dinner drink is better to control ... Show Full Comment

    I had severe anxiety after taking this drug once. When I slept I had nightmares and awake I had panic attacks about completely illogical things (what to wear, etc.) The doctor and pharmacist said this was a rare reaction. I'm someone who normally worries about stuff, but this medicine amplified a casual worry till it was fear beyond reason. Doctor took me off the medicine and gave me someth ... Show Full Comment

    Worked pretty good for over a year, absolutely zero symptoms. Recently though can't tolerate. Developed very severe fatigue and brain fog - as if my battery (power source) was pulled and I just wound down. Stopped drug and symptoms stopped. Restarted and they reappeared after 3 weeks. Wish I could keep taking it as it's very low-cost but the side-effects I'm encountering have ren ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    I was on a generic version for 2 years of misery. Tried other drugs (beta blocker) but had terrible side effects. Went to a combo of generic lisinopril + hydrochlorothiazide + generic form of norvasc. The lsinopril was the most effective component but side effects built up over time (severe anxiety, palpitations and muscle cramps). Dr. said I could be reacting to the filler in the generic version ... Show Full Comment
