Since taking this medication I have noticed extreme brain fog!

Comment from: DT, 45-54 on Treatment for 6 months - 1 year (Patient) Published: January 25

Took 20 mg for 1 year. Have only been able to get BP down to around 155/84. Made me so tired needed to take at bedtime. I also always have some slight swelling of hands and around eye area. Stopped taking and tried other BP meds but now back on Accupril as side effects on other BP Meds worse. Back to square 1 now.

Somewhat effective at 20mg in lowering pressure readings about 8-10 points both systolic and diastolic. First few months seemed to be sleep inducing.

I am in my first week and tired a lot. I seem to be short of breath but that may just be in my mind. Parts of the day my pressure is better than other times. Sometimes I feel wonderful...with lots of energy. I feel less social most of the time unless it is during the time I feel good.

I've used this medication and/or it's substitute, Quinapril, for more than twenty years. After a few years I had to use HCTZ in conjunction with it, but I have never had any problems since. My blood pressure has remained stable ever since.

I have always had lower blood pressure to a normal reading. Perimenaupause changed all that, it seems like it went high all the sudden. I had an pretty easy time getting adjusted to this medication, sleepy if I laided down, however I welcomed the rest. I had not been resting well at all.

I had been on Accupril or quinapril 10 for at least 25 years. I had no problems and it kept the blood pressure under control. Last month I was rushed to the hosp. with swelling of my tongue which I now know is a side effect. It can happen any time. It happened again the other night. Drs. advised it can stay in system for 6 weeks. I have changed BP medicine.

Use HCTZ 25mg along with generic of Accupril (Quinapril) for years. Started to not be enough. Increased Accupril and heart started fluttering (double beating). Stopped all meds for a week and BP went to 156/110. Started on HCTZ 25mg and Attenolol 25mg(had taken this before). Dropped to 140/97 with a 67 pulse. Added 5 MG of Quinapril to the mix and dropped to 122/84 but pulse dipped to 49. Not sure what to do now. Feel light headed, but relaxed.

Was on Accupril 10mg for 10yrs, then raised up to 20mg the past year. No real side affects, worked on and off. My blood pressure keeps jumping around over the years--so Dr switched me to Lisinopril HTC. I miss accupril--had no side affects.;(

Effective in controlling my BP with another BP med at bedtime. However after 1 1/2 years of a chronic cough my doctor said that accupril can cause a cough after taking for a number of years. years and another BP med at bedtime. My cough disappeared when stopping accupril.

Took this medication for about 10 years without any side effects. About a year ago, I developed an annoying constant dry cough. Have changed medication and cough disappeared.

Comment from: Special K, 65-74 Female on Treatment for 5-10 years (Patient) Published: January 15

blood pressure varies with the season. It's in the 120's in Summer and goes up to the high 140's in cold & snow. Exercize varies as does weight(170 goes to 176 lbs). Needed Bisoprolol also to get BP controlled.

Comment from: 75 or over on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: May 18

IT takes my blood pressure real low then after 4 hours or so pressure goes up. May go as low as 88/66 and up to 160 so i class it as ineffective.

The side effects after 10 years or more were a big problem in the midsouth area. Many were sent to the ER.
