  • Awful lisinopril raised my liver enzymes too high
    That awful lisinopril raised my liver enzymes high, gave me a rash too . I feel poisoned , I tried to quit it and my bp skyrocketed . I had some clonodine so I took half of a one milligram pill and my bp lowered. Now my dr says because I am on atenolol I have to stop it before I can take clonodine . So I am trying, but lisinopril is a terrible drug. These doctors push it on us , I wonder why.
  • Lisinopril caused peripheral neuropathy
    I began taking 10mg of Lisinopril recently and within a month began having moderate peripheral neuropathy. The neuropathy was shooting or stabbing sharp pains in hands and feet, burning calves, pins and needles in and around the eyes and ears, and burning eyes. This was so pronounced that I requested the doctor to switch me to Losartan immediately. The peripheral neuropathy quickly subsided and is gone ! My doctor had never heard of the Lisinopril causing this but now she knows. So people - you need to be your own advocate when you know something isn't right.
  • Blood sugar level while taking veltrex
    I been taking Veltrex for a viral infection in my eye for 3 days and today my blood sugar was 448.My normal blood sugar runs around 146.
  • Lisinopril gave me chronic hiccups
    My doctor added lisinopril to my regimen for high blood pressure and within 2 days I had chronic hiccups for 3 days. I stopped taking the lisinopril and the next day the hiccups stopped.
  • Coughing up blood after using symbicort inhaler
    First time I used Symbicort Inhaler, I immediately coughed freely, but noticed it was bright red, blood. Second time I used it- same thing. Third time I used it, I coughed about an hour later a larger amount of blood in phlegm. I'm reluctant to use the medication any further-I will consult my doctor after the weekend.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 days ago):

  • Had blood in stool a couple of times in the last month. I had a colonoscopy & a CT scan & they couldn't find anything abnormal. Stomach discomfort, grumbling & burning goes away & comes back every few days & lasts for days at a time.

  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • After 3 years of using tadalafil 2-3 times a week it suddenly became ineffective and could not get a hard erection. I have tried different suppliers thinking I received a bad batch, but with the same results.

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • GI symptoms began as constipation when first starting Chantix, then flatulence became progressively more prononuced and diarrhea began approximately 3 weeks after starting Chantix which progressed to totally liquid, frequent stools with abdominal cramping. Medical testing for pathogens associated with diarrhea was negative one week ago. I stopped Chantix appromixately 2 weeks ago, and symptoms are less urgent and distressing, but flatulance continues and stools remain liquid.
