Just thought I'd share my experience and see if anyone else had the same problem. I have been taking 20 mg of Lisinopril daily for mild hypertension for the last 3 years or so. I have had little or no side effects and my bp has been relatively normal. However during my recent 6 monthly check at the surgery my diastolic was back up over the 100 mark. After thinking about what I done differently as regards exercise etc, the only thing that was different was that I had been suffering from a heavy cold that had left me with blocked sinuses. To clear the problem I had been taking Sudefed as directed on the packet. So I did a little research.
It appears that the active ingredient in Sudefed cancels out the active ingredient in Lisinopril. I have stopped the Sudefed, and have since had my bp checked at the surgery again, 120/82. There was nothing in the Sudefed box or the leaflet in the box to suggest that there may be problem. Has anybody else experienced the same?
