I have been taking 10 mg/day of Lisinopril for 3 months and have developed a tightening in the chest and flu like symptoms. Within the past 3 weeks I have felt progressively worse and would like to stop. Is it ok to just quit or must I wean myself off?

My husband had open heart surgery for a bad valve in April. He now has a cough so bad he chokes & gags. Coughing til he throws up is very common now. His Dr said its the lisinopril & to deal with it. That he has to stay on bp meds & coughing is fine. They don't live with him & see how bad the coughing is.

I have been on lisinopril for over a year. I have dry cough that chocks me almost vomiting. I am weak my hands shake and my neck is stif and jerky. I take 20 mg. along with Itenolol 50-25 for blood pressure. Now my dr. says my sodium is low in my blood. Should be 135 mine is 129. Stopping the lisinopril and take my chances.

Talk to your doctor and get a new med, not lisinopril.. It's horrible. It's dangerous, never been so sick or afraid in my life. Read the legal cases and why. My opinion but I know others as 'ill as I am on it

Talk to your Dr. first. You are on it for a reason.
What is your BP now? What was it before? Do u know what caused it to be high in the first place? Was it high as a side effect from another of your meds???

I have been on lisinopril 20 mg for over 15 years and recently found my blood pressure at 105/60. So I just stopped taking the drug and now, two weeks later,
my blood pressure is 151/80. I am going to get back on the drug right away. Guess I made mistake stopping it without talking to a doctor.

I was put on lisinopril about 2 weeks ago. My blood pressure was 160. I had just gone through trauma because I hurt my big toe. I have been eating and drinking improperly. I don't feel like I should be on blood pressure medicine. I am going to stop talking it. The doctor won't like it, but I feel I can change my lifestyle and bring all under control. He gave me 20 mm a day. I don't want to be harmed by this drug. Is there withdrawal reprecussions .

I've been on it for a couple of years now. My dosage is 10-12.5.
It appears here that everyone is wanting to describe their side effects than actually answering the persons question.
I too would like to know if you can just stop taking them or does one have to ween himself off of the drug.

For 18 months I have been taking 25mg. atenolol plus 40 mg Lisinopril (daily)(after relatively mild heart attack. My doctor reluctantly OKd my not taking them anymore. Said my doses were so small I didn't have to be concerned about suddenly stopping. Well, i am, and plan to
stop them gradually over a period of a week or so. Cut them in half, and/or take them every other day. Hopefully I am finished with the nightmares. I'm 87 yrs. old.

For me 10 mg/day of Lisinopril was effective but came with the typical side effects of blurred vision, joint pain, erectile dysfunction, etc. Reduced to 5 mg/day it was still effective with no side effects. After 6 weeks BP was too low, the root problem having been fixed with with lifestyle changes, so discontinued Lisinopril and BP returned to normal . Lisinopril withdrawal symptoms were temporary low level chills and sweats, no problem but noticeable.

I was lucky; in my case Lisinopril worked very well and helped me recover from an episode of Rock Star syndrome. But it's powerful stuff and can go awry, so get off it if you can.

I've been on this Lisinorpil for for 3 days, feel awful. Draining sinuses, rough cough from chest and no energy. Can't get off this junk fast enough. So many drugs are just plain poisoness to the system.

Been on lisinopril 20 mg for 2years...blood pressure started going out of control and doctor increased to 40. Started having uncontrolled bp, extreme nausea, numbness of arms and legs, tight chest, unable to talk or stand and ended up in ER several times. tests for heart attack and stroke came back clear...family doctor again increased dose to 80 resulting in more frequent episodes of symptoms. I am unable to stay on the high doses of drug for fear of death but doctor will not take me off drug. I will be changing doctors.

Hello,
I am half way through my nursing program and currently in Pharmacology. If anyone is experiencing a dry cough from Lisinopril, than it is likely that all of the other ace inhibitors will cause a cough also, and you need to tell the Physician immediately, so he or she can prescribe another type of blood pressure medication. When taking blood pressure medications it is important to change positions slowly! If you are jumping out of bed in the morning, your blood will rush from your head to your feet and you will become dizzy; instead take 5 minutes and sit on the side of your bed, let your feet dangle before standing up.

Visited my Doctor on November 1st,2014 to renew my prescription for diabetes medication,Dr. check my blood pressure 138/88 thought my blood pressure to high and to protect my kidneys due to diabetes,prescribed me Lisiniopril 5mg. After a week of taking the pills I developed severe side effects, dizziness upon standing,tightness in chest,numbness on left side,sharp jabbing pains in foot and left side. Check myself into ER on Nov 25th,24 hour observation,all test come by negative,MRI Heart,Cartoid artery Sonogram,blood work. Dr. that released stated Lisinopril had nothing to do with my condition. I've had to detox my body to get back to normal. Lisinopril is some dangerous stuff
