I take two kinds of blood pressure medications and my pressure has remained high even with an increase. My pressure is very high and has been for the last 8 years. But I think because I am female the medical profession doesn't see it as a problem.

I was prescribed this medication due to the fact that my urine test found a high amount of protein in it and I have Type 2 Diabetes. To help prevent Kidney Disease. Too soon to see if it works.Has given me a no stop hurting cough that won't go away. Hard to sleep. Stomach & ribs ache from cough. I see the dr. in two weeks and he wants me to continue the medication until I see him. I normally have low B/P. B/P is still ok. cough is so bad.

My pressure fluctuates, and I can't seem to get it to stabilize. The upper number is often 145-155, and the lower stays around 75-85. While this is not terribly high, there are times when both numbers will "skyrocket" for awhile. Fortunately, the medication seems to be helping with that situation.

makes me very tired, fuzzy thinking etc when taken in morning. Take 10mg daily but I weigh 105 lbs. I understand someone weighing much more do not have this problem. I plan to now take it at night with supper to see if that is better.

I've been on this medication for years and I sometimes feel tired with fatique. This bothers me because I like to be up and going and this interrupts my day.

I have been taking vasotec for 17 years without a problem. I can still have 1 or maybe 2 cups of coffee without raising my BP.

As with aprevious reviewer, I too have had bugs bites become big welts with no scratching by me. I believe that a side effect may be hives. However the brief experiences of that have been worth the benefits. I found hydrocortisine (sp?) cream helped relieve the welts.

first week had a real "metallic" taste, then that went away, has lowered blood pressure, but I do experience lightheadedness or dizziness if I stand too quickly, especially from a squatting position.
