Changing from Lisinopril/hctz to just Lisinopril

Posted , 4 users are following.

Since my doctor changed my blood pressure med from Lisinopril/hctz to just Lisinopril I have had flushing of the face and neck and itching welts (like hives) on upper neck below face. I dont know if this is from switch in medicine or something else. Anyone else ever have this problem? Its still Lisinopril just without the hctz.

    Penni76268,  Anytime you have any type of reaction to any medication, prescription or over the counter, supplement as well,  you must call your doctor and speak to him/her and inform them of all reactions.  Please call your doctor or go to Emergency room or walk in clinic.  You can develop allergic reactions at any time to any medications or supplement.  Hives are considered a pretty serious reaction as they can also happen on the inside of your throat and inside your mouth so if i were you I'd call As soon as possible and don't take the medication again, but you must see your doctor or go to ER or walk in.  Just so you know I am not a doctor, but if a medication causes severe reactions such as swelling, hives or if you have trouble breathing, you should stop it and go get emergency treatment...Best to you...
