From this study (6 days ago):
used Teva brand 10mg Lisinopril for 10+ years with no problems, pharmacy switched to Wokhardt brand Lisinopril in November 2012, began experiencing symptoms in late November 2012 that got steadily worse over time, I realized it was related to the timing of the new Lisinopril so I had the pharmacy switch brands to Lupin (have not been able to find Teva Brand again) Symptoms are less with Lupin brand but stll present.

I'm a female, age 53. My doctor prescribed HCTZ 25/ Triamterene 37.5 MG for my High Blood Pressure. After taking it for about 3 days, on the 4th day I developed really bad muscle spasms in my mid back area. I did loose water weight really good but could not deal with the spasms. I informed my Dr and was taken off the medication. I explained to my Dr the pain & the Dr told me if it was spasms it was a rare side effect. I did read up on the medication once I started developing the pain in back and read that HCTZ could cause muscle spasms. After about 3 - 4 days after not taking HCTZ the pain went away. If it wasn't for the pain I would have continued it because I lost about 9 pds & my BP went down.
