Started this drug over 10+ years ago. Started out with 10mg. Now have moved up to 30mg.and have a terrible uncontrollable cough, this is the only side effect that I have ever had from this medicine over all these years. But I think it must be time for an ACE inhibitor type BP med. can not live with this cough.

This medication helped my condition, but after taking this drug for 15 years with no problem, I had an allergic reaction. My upper lip swelled and I broke out in hives. Because my lip was swelling, my doctor told me to go to the ER. An IV drip of steroids and antihistamines was administered, and I had to take steroid pills for 10 days.

Found out my blood pressure was high in Easter of 2013.. I tried eating right(vegetarian diet) and exercise, it worked. I got too comfortable and started eating egg, cheese and fish again. In the last two weeks I've had lots coconuts, the water and jelly hard and soft meat (Caribbean people knows what I'm talking about :)) maybe too much good cholesterol and I ate out and something in the food raised my bp . For two weeks I felt like I would pass out. I went to the Doctor, my bp readings 175/95, 130/100 he recommend Zestril. Been taking it for two days.. mercy - sinking feeling, light feeling, tickling of throat, headache, vertigo feeling when rising. Today I tried calling doctor, was unsuccessful, my readings are 110/77, 90/84. I want to know if I should stop taking it.

Started with low dose of Zestril in 1988 (age 48) for HBP; 25 mg I think. As I aged the dosage increased was until 1998 when I was moved to another drug. I did not have any of the listed side effects. Currently using 100 mg Metoprolol with too many side effects. Looking for a substitute.

Comment from: mtungate 25-34 Female 10 years or more Patient Published: November 23

I took this medicine because I had protein in my urine. I am a type 1 diabetic. It caused pancytopenia in me, meaning that all my blood cell levels were low and they thought I needed a bone marrow transplant. After nearly a year off the meds my blood levels returned to normal. I am not telling anyone not to take this medicine, but if you do please make your doctor run a CBC test a couple times a year to make sure your blood levels are normal. I was told that my reaction to this medicine was 1:1,000,000, but I don't want anyone else to be the one in a million too!
