Lisinopril Overview

Lisinopril is a medication of the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor class used to treat high blood pressure, heart failure, and after heart attacks.[1] For high blood pressure it is usually a first line treatment, although in black people calcium-channel blockers or thiazide diuretics work better.[1] It is also used to prevent kidney problems in people with diabetes.[1] Lisinopril is taken by mouth.[1] Full effect may...

My lisinopril nctz tab 10-12-5 is a blue hexagon manufactured by Lupin. I am itchy everywhere and wondered what the fill was. I used to take the pink one with no side effects but my pharmacy changed mfg. is nickel or anything like it used as a filler? ## Hi, I wish someone would respond to your question because I just started taking the exact pill yesterday and my skin is crawling. ## What are the markings on the tablets in question?

round white pill with 20 on one side, scored on the other

I found some white pills amongst other benzodiazepines in a drawer at a friends house and I'm having trouble distinguishing them. ## I've scoured the internet for this pill. and the only one that fits the description is a german version of clonazepam (antelepsin). However, that pill seems to have beveled edges. The one I have is smooth with 20 on one side and a scored on the other side so that it can easily break in half. I was told it is 2mg clonazepam. I am not able to confirm because I cant find an online source for its description. ## I searched for this same pill, that I found on my dresser. I came up with 20mg Lisinopril, which has I am prescribed, but never remember them being white. It is for high blood pressure. But it is white, round with 20 on one side and a score mar...

lisonopril and continued rash

I woke up 3 nights ago with both arms covered by what appeared to be mosquito bites. I was mystified,nut thought it might be poison ivy. The next morning, I called my BCBS hotline, who identified this an allergic reaction. I called my doctor, who took me off of lisinopril and wnats me to try taking nothing for a week, then start 2.5 mg amlodipine if necessary. I have minor rash (itchy) on my legs every morning. How long will this continue? I stopped taking fish oil, a recent addition, in case this was the culprit. I also got a severe rash from hyzaar blood pressure medecine. I have also been taking very low doses of xanax for a year now. ## Unfortunately, allergic reactions are always possible, and if you've had a reaction already to a medication, in the past, there is a good chance...

Lisinopril anxiety and shortness of breath

Has anybody experienced anxiety, shortness of breath, rapid heartbeat, and abdominal pain after starting Lisinopril? Note that I have never had problems with anxiety and do not believe it is a panic attack. Did not have this issue until on this medication. ## Lisinopril is commonly used to help lower blood pressure. These could be the signs of a serious adverse reaction, you need to contact your doctor immediately. ## I have constant anxiety. Feeling of doom. Cough. Body tingles. Trouble sleeping because of the anxiety. ## The Lisinopril can cause this, it is rare, but highly possible. My doctor recently had me try it and I experienced severe problems, as well. Have you spoken to your doctor about it? There are other medications you can try. ## After starting Lisinopril my husbands pers...

lisinopril anxiety and palpitations

I have come to think the extreme anxiety depression heart palpitations and tingling in my left fingers are related to the 20 mg lisinopril I started just over a year ago. I also take amlodpine and warfarin ...I cant believe it took me so long to suspect this. I will speak to my doctor but also want to see what those who quit lisinopril have to say about the weaning period and side affects while cutting down and quitting . Please advise. This is horrible beyond anything I have ever experienced. Please help if you can ! ## Sorry, I just saw this post with more details. In this case, since you are on several medications, it is hard to say which one might be causing your symptoms, if they are due to a combination of them, or if they may be unrelated. As to stopping Lisinopril, sometimes if ...

Stopping Lisinopril

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? ## Lisinopril is used to help control high blood pressure. That said, most of these medications can cause dangerous rebound effects if you have been on them for a period of time and abruptly stop taking them, this can include increased blood pressure and heart rate, with the risk of heart attack and stroke. The side effects that you are experiencing are normal for this class of medications, you may also experience headache and dizziness. If it is getting worse, however, and not tapering off, you should speak to your doctor immediately abo...

lisinopril quitting

Can some one tell me what to expect when weaning off of 20 mg Lisinopril...am down to 15 mg now no effects but now trying to go to 12.5 and today is first day and seem to be having some effects of being hot and feeling like i want to panic. I have been on it for 14 months for blood pressure . can any one advise how to wean off I just plan on 2.5 mg cuts every 10 days or so unless I get better advice ? ## Why are you stopping it? Has your doctor approved your doing so? If you were taking it for high blood pressure, you shouldn't stop without a physician's approval, because if it's the only thing controlling your blood pressure, it will become elevated, again, even if you taper off of it slowly. Are you monitoring your blood pressure and heart rate?

lisinopril pill size change

I too just received the refill for my Mom's 10 mg Lisinopril tabs from Lupin Pharmacy,and have discovered they are half the size of the ones she has been taking for years. She is 93 years old, is very feeble, and uses a walker to get around. I am extremely concerned about whether or not to give her these new pills as I have read all the side effects people are experiencing. If she was to get dizzy or lightheaded the results could be disastrous. Does anyone have an alternative to this brand that may still be the same as the old larger Lisinopril tabs? ## I started the new pills a few weeks ago. I ended up in the hospital with blood pressure 201/103 which is stroke and heart attack level. Something is wrong with these pills. I have taken lisinopril for many years and never had any iss...

lisinopril side effects when stopping

I've been taking lisinopril 20mg for more than 20 years. I have had side effects that come and go, such as coughing, lightheadedness, and dizziness. But now I have lightheadedness and dizziness all the time. Frequent urination, legs are weak, sometimes when I am walking I feel like I am going to pass out; and ED problems. I spoke with my doctor and he told me to stop taking it. I stopped taking it one week ago. My bp is 135/75. My question is how long will these side effects last before they go away? Thanks. ## Hello, Luis! How are you feeling? After being on it for so long, it may take a month, or so, before these effects go away and for you to start feeling better. As reported by the FDA, you may also start experiencing some rebounds effects, such as elevated blood pressure and he...
