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...

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...

Dog Ate Lisinopril20 Mg

My 50 lb dog ate Lisinopril tablet. Will it hurt her? ## I'm sorry, but I don't know what most human medications will do to animals. Many human medications are also used in dogs and since Lisinopril is used to help lower blood pressure, it could have an effect on hers and may make her ill. Have you contacted a vet? You should definitely watch for signs of problems, such as lethargy and vomiting. ## My dog about 80 pounds got my bottle of lisinopr/hydrochloride hiazide tab 20-25mg. Not sure how many he ate but by counting I think it was about 3. ## Useless site...Severe lack of info...should not waste time in emergent situation to get any help with this particular problem.

Lisinopril and Dry Mouth

I have a very bad case of dry mouth. I think it is the lisinopril that is causing it. It is the only common denominator. I started having this issue in March. I have researched dry mouth over and over again, and the only factor that includes me is a side effect from the medicine. No other cause of dry mouth affects me. I am diabetic, but my numbers are always good. So I have a few questions: 1. Are there any cases of dry mouth caused by lisinopril? 2. Can someone be taking a medicine like lisinopril for a while (two years) before the effects show up? 3. If I go off the lisinopril, how long until the dry mouth goes away? 4. If I go off the lisinopril is there an alternate hypertension medicine that will work? Thank you for your time. ## Hello Rob, According to the NIH dry mouth is listed...

Lisinopril and acid reflux?

I started taking lisinopril a couple of years ago. I never really got the cough. However I got acid reflux that was debilitating. I was prescribed pantoprazole for that. I hate the long term side effects and was looking for an alternative - and wondering how I suddenly got reflux. I stopped the pantoprazole two weeks ago and am coping with apple cider vinegar. After some research it seems that lisinopril can cause stomach issues. So I stopped that yesterday and am drinking hibiscus tea instead. Has anyone else had acid reflux disease as a result of lisinopril? ## Hello, Gerdie! How are you doing? Most prescription medications can cause acidity issues as a side effect, according to the FDA. They can often be mitigated by making sure to take them with food, or by taking an antacid with th...

TruVision and Lisinopril

Does anyone know if these two products are safe to take together? I asked this question before I ordered it and was assured it was ok. However, I just took my first dose and read the back label (I know....I should have doubled checked first). It states it's 'not intended' for people with high blood pressure! Ugh! Now I'm trying not to stress out so my BP level won't go up. Any information would be helpful! ## I am sorry, I really understand your concern. Being a heart and blood pressure patient myself, I have found myself in that same boat a few times, sometimes it is iffy knowing what we can and can't take. However, from what I can find, the NIH reports TruVision as being a manufacturer, not the name of one specific product. They make several natural supplements...

lisinopril-hctz 20/12.5mg

white pill ## What does 20/12.5 mg mean? ## The pill you have is Lisinopril (20 mg) + Hydrochlorothiazide (12.5 mg).

I have been taking Sandoz lisinopril 40mg oval pink pill for many years imprinted with E104 and my BP has been stable.

This is true for any active person. The ...
