How long after you stop lisinopril does the side effects go away.
I have been on Lisinopril for over three years.
Last March (9 Months ago) I started to get dry mouth.
I have researched dry mouth until the cows come home, and the only factor that applies to me is medicinal side effect. I do not smoke, drink, do drugs, been hit on the head, had cancer treatment, etc, etc. The only other factor that causes dry mouth that would apply to me is diabetes, but my numbers are all good. Sometimes they are very low. They say aging also causes it, but I am only 61 years old. And the aging usually also says dry mouth will come to those who are older due to taking more meds.
The only med I have been on since the dry mouth started was on that I am still on.... is isinopril.
I talked to my doctor a week ago, and he suggested I cut my dosage from 20mg to 10. I did him one better...I stopped taking tit all together (I am monitoring my blood pressure every day). In lieu of taking the med, I started exercise and diet programs (I lost forty pounds in the last six months)
At any rate, it has been a week since I quite taking the pill. I figured by now I would see a change. I have it seems the dry mouth is getting WORSE.
Some folks tell me that it will be a few weeks before the dry mouth goes away, and in the interim, it could get worse before it gets better. This is what seems to be happening.
Has anybody else been down this road. I would love to hear from some people with the same experience as I have.
