    Have been taking for almost 2 years. Seems to help lower BP. Have noticed hair loss, occasional dizziness when tilting my head to look upward. Hoping for something better with NO side effects!

    This medication controlled my blood pressure but I was told when it was prescribed that it may cause a cough due to a little tickle in my throat. Well that "little tickle" has caused a cough so bad that I nearly vomit. I cough so hard it feels like the top of my head is going to blow off.

    I've been taking Lisinopril for over a year with great success. My blood pressure was consistently 160/90 or higher. Was reluctant to take meds. Within a week of being on Lisinopril, my blood pressure dropped to 120/75 and is still that today.(or lower) I have no side effects what so ever. Truly a miracle drug for me.

Yet the side effects for me are real and not that fun.. Light headiness, raspy cough,tired and fatigued, burned out, sore shoulders, some nausea and maybe dull pains in pancreas region. I do not trust you big PHARMA, a ... Show Full Comment

    Have been on Lisinopril 9 days. Light-headed, feel hungover. BP was 200/120 at the start. BP is lower but the diastolic (lower number) drops too low. Has gone down to 48. Have been holding when diastolic is too low. Not sure I can continue to tolerate this light-headedness and feeling "fuzzy".
