    Extreme Weight Gain on Lisinopril

    My doctor recently prescribed Lisinopril 5mg about two weeks ago. My weight has steadily increased by about 6 lb. I'm wondering if it could be the Lisinopril. Also noticed some memory problems as well. Anyone else out there having similar problems.

    Recommendation based on experience

    I'm suffering from arthritis and was taking Tylenol.  Feet started to burn so stopped.  Currently I take an ace inhibitor, blood thinner and beta blocker.  Is there a safe pain reliever that doesn't interact with these three medications.
