I am also taking a beta-blocker and the combination is causing me to overheat and profusely perspire for no reason. It has helped bring down my BP, but the aches & pains, coughing and lethargy make me wonder if it's worthwhile to keep taking it.

I have developed the cough, especially at night time. Have developed allergy symptoms (watery eyes, stuffiness, itchy throat) that i never had before. Very tired and like another reviewer said, my sciatica also has been acting up worse than ever. Cannot wait to get something else.

After a month on this prescription, I developed coughing when laying in bed. Doctor switched me over to COZAAR and after using it, the coughing not only stopped, but my BP dropped considerably to 106/70 (and maintained that BP).

This medication lowered my blood presure efectively, fatigue was a big concern until I became use to it. Now I am having stomach and colon problems and think it may be due to this drug, any comments would be appreciated.

I work in a high stress professional field. I was put on 30 mg of lisinopril, and within 2 months had gained over 20 pounds with my regular 3 mile a day walk and work out. I felt as though I was working thru a thick fog and lost a lot of ability to concentrate. I dropped off the foul stuff, and feel like I am re-involved with life again. A good cigar with an after dinner drink is better to control things with than not being able to work or function properly. Horrible stuff.

Comment from: Better alternative, 55-64 Female on Treatment for 1-6 months (Patient) Published: October 19

I was on a generic version for 2 years of misery. Tried other drugs (beta blocker) but had terrible side effects. Went to a combo of generic lisinopril + hydrochlorothiazide + generic form of norvasc. The lsinopril was the most effective component but side effects built up over time (severe anxiety, palpitations and muscle cramps). Dr. said I could be reacting to the filler in the generic version or to the drug molecule itself. The molecule in the generic is slightly different from that in the name brand. Since it was so effective at lowering BP she suggested we try the name brand version. It's like night and day. 95% of the bad side effects went away within 1 week with equally effective BP control. The only disadvantage is the extra cost ($38 per mo vs. $6).
