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?

I have had the exact same thing while on Lisonopril
I’ve had a constant dry cough so hard that I throw up sometimes doctor put me on antibiotics thinking it was bronchitis or Pneumonia I am on my second set of anabiotic’s because the first that didn’t work I am so sick of coughing I really thought I had COPD I’m a bit angry that it’s taken me this long to figure out it’s the blood pressure medicine. I started looking online because I was so afraid it might be something worse I want to take myself off but it looks like that is not wise to do I am only on 10/12.5 mg tablets
I must be really slow to figure this out because I’ve been on Lisinopril for over six months I’ve had this cough for at least three months but under a lot of stress just thought it was the fact that I wasn’t taking better care of myself

What are the most common side effects I should be aware of after taking Lisinopril 5mg & Indapamide 2.5mg for 7 years, then just stopping them as the doctor told me to? My joints are really aching. Is this normal?

Hey there,

I'm a pretty healthy individual and had to start taking lisinopril in december of 2015 due to high BP caused by pain. Since then i've been stuck on 40mg a day. I am 27 years old, athletic, etc. What are the risks if i stop taking it? I am worried i'll be stuck on it forever.

Yes, but go ahead and try Hawthorn which acts as a natural ace inhibitor.

Our doctor and pharmacist said it was okay to stop taking Lisinopril cold turkey. Although, it may not be a bad idea to switch over to the herb Hawthorn which acts as a natural ace inhibitor.

I've only been taking this medication for 3 days and i just stopped it today because it can damage your liver. Is it ok that i just stopped it? It was a 40mg tablet taken once a day.

I know how scary health issues can be. I hope someone is with you. I don't know if you have been in contact with your doctor, but you are the only person who knows just how "off" your body is right now. I don't think you should hesitate to seek medical help if you feel you need it. Best wishes for answers and better health.

If you have bilateral stenosis if the kidney don't take Lisinopril. It might make you get kidney failure.

My dad took lisinopril for 2 days, and had a bad allergic reaction. His hands swelled up to where he couldn't make a fist, and sore tongue & lips. He finally let me take him to emergency room, and they gave him IV to neutralize the lisinopril. Lisinopril almost killed him. It has been 2 months since, and his tongue is VERY sore. The Doctor gave him mouthwash yesterday, but sore tongue isn't improving.

I've been asked for an update with my lisinopril experience. Looking back my comments go way back and I haven't participated for some time, but:
When I went OFF linsinopril my symptoms disappeared after a few very minor episodes. I am now on another BP medication that does control my BP and the other symptoms no longer exist. Yes! many take lisinopril with no ill effects, but some, myself included, know that severe reactions DO happen. May it not happen to you, or if it does, may your primary care get you off the denial go-round I went through.

Yessss! Today, Im finally off of BOTG HI BP meds, the last of which is Lisnopril. And my general practice doctor smile, and next we will be getting you off of the other generic drugs! Big pharma, bite my big one.

Starting eating lots of FRESH veggies, sauteing them, and a fresh veggie salad for BREAKFAST. Lots of natural probiotics in the veggies I choose.

Als go to the gym, sev times a weeks

And the arthritis in my knees has LESSENED!

Albuterol can also raise blood sugar levels. It's best to check with your doctor.

Lisinopril removes water from the body like a diuretic. That may be why people think this drug is similar to Lasix.

Years ago I was prescribed Lisinipril/HCTZ. As an Asthmatic they forgot to take into account the use of inhalers (ALBUTEROL) which can raise BP.
