It's so nice to find this site - Ive been taking Lisinopril

Posted , 1 user is following.

It's so nice to find this site - Ive been taking lisinopril for some months and find it does give me a cough but no too bad a one. My skin does itch though - & I suffer really bad indigestion at night {when I am told I must take the pill} no matter what eat; antacids or Zantac seem to do little or no good. Does anyone else have the same problem?

    I take my 2.5mg in the [b:bf43df4053]morning[/b:bf43df4053], with breakfast and have not had any problem with it. Perhaps you could try changing the time you take it.

    I take my 5mg 1st thing before breakfast and have had no side effects that I am aware of.

    Mum took same dosage and got rhe cough but it has gone now she is on different meds.

    best thing is my BP dropped from 140/110 9at worst) to 100/65 (2 days ago) so i am feeling much better.

    A general winge about this site; we have lots of separate threads, but no easy way for the new Lisinopril user to get an overall view. Also, whenif ever, arecomments monitored professionall? So suggest that this site

    1) be rationalised by an IT expert, and (2) monitored by an identified, if anonymous GP or pharmacist.

    In my case

    1) I,ve been explicitly instructed to take pill in the morning, and

    2) I experience a number of minor side effects, including mood swings, feeling hot one minute & cold the next. But how do I know that these are not caused by something else? e.g. the treatment i had for prostrate cancer in March 09 ? As the 18th century philosopher Berkely said: ' one result can have an infinity of causes'
