Bad Medicine ~ Lisinopril

835 ratings | 117664 views
I was recently prescribed Lisinopril for high blood pressure. I had a terrible side effect with a bad dry cough. The cough was 24/7. It can persist for weeks even if you stop taking Lisinopril. Stay away from this medicine if possible and ask your doctor for an alternative.

I believe for me, the cough, has come and gone for about a month at a time and then then has recurred within two weeks over the last year and I have been taking it for four years. Fantastic video thanks a lot very much appreciated. I will call my doctors on Monday morning, KEEP IT SWINGING ON THE FRONT PORCH! Saturday night and hiding out in Kansas.com

Oh yeah Steve forgot to say my script of Lisinopril is pink in color with only a #5 stamped on each tab. I liked how you made hammered into blue powder in slow motion, good affect, nicely done dude!

Just tell them your symptoms. They will make a change for you. I changed to Losartan and it's been good for me.

This drug is based on snake venom and is eliminated through the lungs and causes the bad dry hack. Also causes extreme shortness of breath. Poison !!!!!!

Just got back from my Dr. Took me off it after 10 months. Over time I developed every major side effect, cough so bad the other day I threw up, extreme lethargy, waking up with a swollen tongue a couple nights a week, you name it. 8% of patients will have or develop severe allergic reactions as I did according to my Dr. Had I known all this I would have contacted him months ago. I just wrote it all off to getting old.
Steve Sherron (13 days ago)
I'm glad you are off it now. Your life will be better.

I take a low dose of this med (2.5 mg once daily) and have not had any coughing issues or any other side effects since the time I began taking it in 2013.
Kathy Dufau (2 months ago)
I just pinpointed Lisinopril as the problem for my constant coughing,heart palpitation,dizziness and shortness of breath. I found that someone I know passed out from a lack of oxygen and was in a coma for 2 weeks.! Even off the drug, a month since the last dose, and still having problems!
S Marie (2 months ago)
I have been having the same problem for months now and had no idea what it could be. When I told my dr she said it was more than likely the lisinipril. She just changed mine to Losartan. Hope this works because I’ve been miserable!

You DID IT!!! OMG I've been coughing up a lung for nearly 3 months! Docs wanted to put me on all kinds of things, but I wanted to know WHY I was coughing, not just surpress it. I would have Never Thought it was high blood pressure meds. Thank You!!! : D

I feel like it robs Me of all of My energy. I am of no use on this drug.
Jason Johnson (2 months ago)
Was on lotrel gave me a horrible cough. The doc wanted to put me on losartan and metoprolol. That sounds like a great idea let's try two black box warning drugs and see if I die in my sleep. Better yet throw in some tide pods to round it off.... bet the docs wouldn't give this crap to their kids
I'm on this crap too and I just stopped them. I just decided to eat CLEAN and lost 20 pounds and am taking herbs to help cure HBP....and I'll tell ya....its worth stopping these crap asap.

This is among the best blood pressure solution I`ve read “fetching komso site” (G00GLE it). It is written in clear and understandable language and it is simple to follow. I strongly recommend this book for anybody desiring to lower his or her blood pressure level. My blood returned to the standard 120/80 after using the recommendations on the program.
Daniel Torres (3 months ago)
I had been taking it for about three weeks. I developed a cough and I thought my wife passed me her cough. I finally went to the Doctor and they told me I had no signs of a Respiratory Infection or strep. She did mention that cough and sore throat were some possibly side effects of the medicine. I was also given isosorbide so I didn't which one was worse. I called Caridology three days later and they told me to stop taking them. Two nights later I was finally able to at least lay down to sleep. Still a little cough, but less and less every day now. It was bad, felt like power was being shoved down my throat.
homesaverchimney (3 months ago)
Just stumbled upon this PSA...lol. I am also having issues with HBP and my doc said if I dont get it under control in 3 months he's going to prescribe something which I am fighting. Since losing most of my taste 6 yrs ago during my accident, I have been using a ton of salt so I can at least taste something. I suppose this has caused the issue so I now use "no salt" which is actually good for you. I'm trying to drink lots of water and eat foods that tend to lower BP. Staying away as much as possible from things that are known to raise it. I take readings at home a lot and some days its normal, some days it's high. Starting to think heredity has a lot to do with it as on my mom's side there's a lot of HBP. Anyway thanks for the PSA old buddy! Peace!!

Lisinopril cough is a common side effect of ace inhibitors. There are other options, also many times it resolves itself within a few weeks.

david cain (4 months ago)
Same thing happened to me. Absolutley horrible cough. I stopped taking it for 2 weeks, the cough went away. I started taking half my dose again.....and the caugh came back. I switched to losartan. I gotta take more losartan to keep my B.P. just right.....but it works. Unfortunatley, the doc doesnt think i can make any lifestyle changes to control my b.p. Im not overweight, my cholesterol is in a good range for my age (38). Its just heriditary, so ill be taking medicine for the rest of my life. Therefore, its important to find a medicine that has no negative side effects.
Steve Sherron (4 months ago)
Same with me. I take Losartan now. Half pill in the morning and keeps it under control until late in the day. I may have to take another half pill in the afternoons.

I just found my problem, I was having such a miserable life and it was only 5 months that I took it, my husband was hating my cough, he said to me exaggerated, and today my doctor as if nothing says to me is the lisinopril do not worry in 4 weeks already changing your cough will go !!!!!
Oscar B (5 months ago)
I'm a 58 overweight male. I started taking Lisinopril and I developed a dry cough (about 12 cough fits a day) went back to see my Dr. He told me all ACE inhibitors cause a dry cough (diuretic effect) Since my cough isn't that bad and it doesn't mess with my sleep; He told me to stay on it.

It can also cause swelling in the face lips or even throat. It caused my lips to swell very bad.

I was lucky I never had coughing with Lisinopril. I wonder if it's because I always took it on a full stomach. One day I'd still like to get off of them. My thyroid meds causes my blood pressure problem.
Robert Reynolds (5 months ago)
I have been taking this medication for 15 years with no issues. My BP stays at 125/70 more or less. It's only bad if it doesn't work for you, most it does work for. All BP Meds have these same warnings on them, just check it out everyone so it's trial & error BTW if you are going to toss those pills and they 20 MG send them to me! This goes for the rest of the Lisinopril pill taking world!~
Amenda Watson (5 months ago)
I was on Lisinopril for a good two years before that cough developed. I finally had enough of the constant coughing and had my doctor switch me to Losartan. Within two weeks, the cough was nearly gone, now it's over a year later, still no cough.
apollovizsla (5 months ago)
My doctor prescribed Lisinopril for my HBP and I have been taking it for two weeks now. I do have a dry cough and feels like I can't breathe in too deep or I start coughing as if I have bronchitis. Also, I do not know if it is true or not, but I read that Lisinopril was made from the venom from a Brazilian snake! Geeesh!

My friend , this Army vet has been prescribed lisinopril 20mg twice per day. I have been feeling all the symptoms from acid reflux, ulcer, diarrhea, headache, memory loss, sometimes too low of blood pressure feeling faint and weak. This year after the flu, all hell broke loose. PERSISTENT DRY COUGH. In the past two month, I visited my provider at 30 day with the story. She gave me more acid prevent pills. Two weeks later I claim to have a Dry cough attack. She gave me 100 mg of benzonatate 3 per day for cough. This if chewed can kill in 24 hours after ingested, must be swallowed. I stopped the lisinopril and trying other natural methods to lower press.. Mucinex and other med can relief for a moment.This is what happens at the VA Health system.

I went on a whole food plant based diet and got rid of HCTZ and lowered my lisinopril fm 40 to 20md a day. Same with lipitor lowered fm 10mg a day to 10mg every other day. When they tell you you're on these drugs for life don't believe it. I'm hoping to be drug free by 2019.
Rod S (6 months ago)
I started taking it 3 weeks ago and the last 10 days have been pure hell insofar as the cough. I stopped last night when I discovered it was the drug that was responsible. Anybody know how long it'll take before this cough subsides since I'm recently off of this drug
chickenlittle (6 months ago)
the side effects I had came on after years of using Lisinopril. It can happen anytime. Dry cough was minor compared to akathisia. side effects warning call it motor restlessness. that's just a way the drug companies switch terms around to avoid telling the truth. akathisia is pure hell.
athanasia columbus (6 months ago)
I took it in the summer at first I was dizzy and nauseated for the first month or so...my cough wasn't too bad.. after a month...I started feeling better....with proper diet....and exercise and drinking lots of water...After 9 months my kidneys function better..BPressure is under control....Medicine affects everyone differently...I take a small dose every night

Daniel Sechrist (6 months ago)
I have been on Lisinopril for a good few years, the reason you call it crap is because you were prescribed the combination of an ACE inhibitor with a diuretic that strips excess fluid off the body
Mark Magtoto (6 months ago)
Who im kidding all medication has side effects and adverse effects we all know that, if some side effects call your md so he or she can change your medication there is a lot of highblood medication not just lisinopril/hydrochlorothiazide yeah i can speak and spell generic names i study for that

Blood pressure is not a good indicator of health but IS a good indicator of scared sheep BIg Pharma can make money on you. In Germany they find ways to RAISE your BP so nutrients in blood can reach ALL your body parts. Those new BP machines in doctor offices squeeze your arm so hard you want to scream, The more upset you are the higher BP, the higher the BP the more big pharma can sell you drugs. #BigPharmaHell #FakeNarrative$

You're right. My wife takes it with no issues. But after one dose, I had a serious backache that subsided the next day. But after 2 or 3 days, I had that terrible cough. Thank God, I was aware that it was a side effect. And stopped taking it, Asap. However, it's been 3 days, since I last took any, and that nagging cough, is still present. Bummer!

I had the cough from this crap for over year.. only found out it was lisinopril when I couldn't afford it over a summer.. damn near ruined my life.. going on and off of different antibiotics because the doctor didn't know what it was.. ruined my knees with Levaquin trying to heal the cough.. and the steroids that helped the cough but ruined my feet.. softened ligaments and tendons and etc.. just bad shit.. now I gotta get off of Clonidine.. an even worse drug..
Steve Sherron (7 months ago)
Hate to hear that. Good luck to you.

All medicines have side effects, and all patients have different reactions to various medicines.  I'm sorry if your doctor didn't discuss any potential side effects with you, but that doesn't make Lisinopril a "bad medicine"--it's just not good for you.  It's saved a lot of lives, and many people tolerate it very well.
SkullTag Films (8 months ago)
Lots of people are on lisinopril without side effects. When it comes to blood pressure meds you have to find the right one for you. I have had horrible side effects with carvedilol, including extreme fatigue, nausea, muscle spasms etc. consider yourself lucky your side effect was only a cough. However saying this is a bad medicine is not accurate as this may be the prefect med for others.

Ever since I was 26 years old, I had been already encountering hypertension and I needed to take medicine. This is the first blood pressure level solution “fetching komso site” (G00GLE it) which has ever actually worked to lessen my pressure by natural means. Within a month of following the advices in the book, there wasn`t any need for me to consume all of my medication.

I was prescribed benezapril, amd i developed the cough. This guy is not joking!. It's like a fingernail clawing your throat until you give into the coughing. Then i cough until my eyes go bloodshot and i almost throw up. then my throat even feels swollen. It is literally destroying my life. I distrupt my coworkers, my family, and I cant sleep with anyone, even myself.

David Hobbs (9 months ago)
Thanks!  I have been on it for three weeks.  I developed a bad cough that got worse and worse, until it was almost constant, day and night.  About once or twice a day it  would get a dizzy head rush that would make me almost feel like I was going to pass out.  It is an awful feeling.  Over the last couple of nights, I quit taking the medication, and the cough is starting to go way, a little at a time.  Awful!
