I STOPED TAKING IT. IT CAUSED ME ERECTILE DYSFUNCTION, AND I DID NOT KNOW HOW IT HAPPENED UNTIL I CONSULTED WITH A DIFFERENT DOCTOR. I AM NOT TAKING IT ANYMORE, AND I AM IN THE PROCESS OF FLUSHING IT OUT OF MY BODY. I HAD A TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE, ALMOST FRUSTRATING!!!!!!!!!1

I have been taking Vasotec for over 12 years and it has been very effective and I feel great. When the generic came out my doctor had me try it and I felt terrible and went back on Vasotec. Now my insurance isn't going to cover the Vasotec and I'm not sure what I am going to do. The insurance finally said they would cover it starting in Jan. 2010 for one year but I'm not sure what I am going to do in the meantime. Can't afford the over $100 for the Vasotec for a month.

Take vasotec every day with other medication - i.e. 81 grm aspirin, levothyroxin (under active thyroid), lipitor(cholestral), Xxatral(enlarged prostate)and have no interaction problems - - just for your information.

Comment from: shannon, 45-54 on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: November 24

I was on a generic for this drug: Enalapril. Took it at bedtime. Middle of night had swelling of lip and tongue first day. But continued and had some minor stomach gas/bloating and sometimes feeling of rapid heart beat. On the eleventh day I had swelling of tongue, lip and closing of throat due to allergic reaction to it. 2 Benedryl dissolving tabs took care of it. But now am off. Too bad I had this reaction because my BP went from 160/95 to 118/80. If you aren't allergic to it, I think it generally would be helpful.

My husband has been taking Vasotec and he is doing very well on it. He just recently started having a problem when he is bitten by mosquitos and another bug he has whelps. They hurt and do not go away anytime soon. This has been happening for a week. Has anyone ever heard of this while taking Vasotec?
