    I have taken this med for over 15 years. It's not not great but added with another high BP med and I have my BP controlled WITHOUT the horrible side-effects I have had with other meds.

    I was unable to sleep due to severe heart throbbing, like it was coming out of my chest. It resulted in asthma and breathing problems. Also it did little to relieve blood pressure. Instead I take NATURAL B vitamins and regular exercise resulting in normal blood. However I still suffer from persistant asthma; thanks doc!

    I have been on Enalapril for more than 10 years. I started out on 10 mg. once per day and found that by evening my BP had gone up. Changed dosage to 10mg. twice a day. Later changed to 15 mg twice a day and have been there for years with very good results. It works for me and I have not experienced any side affects at all.

    I've taken this medication for about 3 months now. I had a bit of coughing at first, but just a bit. My biggest concern is that my mid-section seems to be puffing out. I've not gained weight but have gained inches. Anyone else having this problem?

    Comment:
    I only took 5 mg. for less than two week. I was extremely spaced out mentally, very fatigued and felt like I was intoxicated. It did keep my blood pressure very low but I stopped taking it on my own because I did not feel like myself and didn't trust my judgement on this drug.
