This medicine worked well for me for 6 years, then 1 night I almost died from the Lisinopril. I contracted angioedema. Imeddiately was put in ICU and almost had to have a trach done. Now I can never take any medicines with Pril at the end.

Iam on Triameterene, Amalodipine, Bystolic and just about a mouth ago my doctor also added Lisinopril , now I have developed dizziness and I have fallen twice. I called my doctor and he decreased the Lisinopril to just 5mg once a day. Still dizzy.

Concerned RN neighbor | 13.06.13
My neighbor was having problems with another BP med and the DR changed her to Losartin. Within 10 days she developed giant hives, nausea and her BP was so low she almost died. She was in the hospital for 4 days in intensive care. Went home and then was readmitted with sepsis. She has a pacemaker and artificial valve - prayers that this is all reversible. | 11.06.13
Dr.started me out on 25mg. It did nothing and my BP was 140/95, raised dosage to 50mg. Made me very tired so I took at night. Still high readins of 140/92, or 90. Dr. raised to 100 mg.

Stoped taking nd went back to the dr. Too ...

this medication did not work as well as previously used medications at first but after a month it was a little more effective, I experienced head aches, strange taste and elevated kidney functioning.
