    Created a terrible side effect of a very persistent cough nasty enough that it affected me conducting business and being able to sleep lying down... was on it for 5 months thinking the cough was caused by something else. Stopped taking it and 3 days later the cough was 100% gone.

If you take lisinopril manufactured by Lupin monitor you bloo ... Show Full Comment

    While it did lower blood pressure, it also caused a blood clot in the lungs, a fast heart beat problem (pulse = 160/min), turned my bowel movements to chili consistency (took a year of no lisinprol use to correct) and gave me such lethargy/malaise that I felt like doing nothing. Overall, avoid like the plague. Unfortunately the high blood pressure fixation by medical world is a financial s ... Show Full Comment
