The doctor wants to change me to Diovan and Hydrochlorothiazide. I am currently on Lisinopril 40mg. I am afraid to change. I am allergic to sulfa drugs. I have had a cold/flu for about 2 months and he thinks Lisinopril may be causing the cough. (this is a new doctor to me). I have been on Lisinopril for 10 years and have had no problems. Not sure what to do. Also Diovan is a tier 4 drug. Lisinopril is a tier 1.

Hydrochlorothiazide is a sulfonamide, but they don't always cause problems in people with sulfa allergies.

Learn more Hydrochlorothiazide details here.

I've taken it without a problem, but had a very bad allergic reaction to the antibiotic Bactrim and am listed as being sulfa allergic.

However, it is best to proceed with caution.

Have you discussed the issue with your doctor, or pharmacist?

Why does he want to change your medications?
