Male, 62, Sacramento, CA
I have been taking simivistatin for 7 years. I recently started taking generic FlowMax and it worked fine. My blood pressure at my last physical was 150/95 so I tracked it for a week and it seemed to stay the same, morning and night. My Dr. recommended that I take lisinopril (10 mg) once a day and when I did, after about 6 hours, I could not urinate for about 8 hours and when I did I experienced excrutiating pain. I had a swollen bladder for another 6 to 8 hours before the effects totally went away. I haven't taken another Lisinopril pill since then and have had now further problems. I do notice that my blood pressure is normal when I go to bed at night, but high when I get up. I assume that the FlowMax may be helping with the blood pressure for a few hours at least.

Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • How long can you take flomax
    how long of a period can you take flomax, and do you need blood work often.
  • Would taking a low dose of lisinoril and low dose of black cohosh periodically at different times of the day help to prevent or lessen the possibilities of drug interaction?
    I'm 49 y/o still having regular periods, prehypertensive and premenopausal now for the last 2-3 years. My PCP finally put me on a very low dose of Lisinopril 5mg QD my B/P is now below or right at text book perfect. I started to have off and on s/sx of menopause very infrequent. Found a tincture made by a reptubal company of natural herbs and spices that makes a combo of black cohosk, black licore, chastise berry, etc. I use a very small amount on occasions when I think I might be feeling "the change" coming on. I seem to have equal positve effects from both drugs but I'm concerned about the studies that show long term ill effects!
  • Lisinopril's interaction with aspirin and hawthorn
    I'm about to change from captopril to lisinopril mainly for cost reasons, no other reasons really. I've been taking 650 mg. aspirin (enderic) and 200mg. extracted hawthorn (1.8% vitexin-2'-rhamnocide) along with 450 mg. of hawthorn berries. Now I read that I'm not to take either the aspirin nor the hawthorn along with the lisinopril. What's up with that? Have I been taking the wrong combo for the last 14 yrs? My dr. seems to question the aspirin taking in a vague sort of way. Knows nothing about hawthorn. Can someone set me straight on this? I did have a minor heart attack, losing some muscle, and need nitro in order to hike or walk the dog. Otherwise fine. This initial script was given to me by the cardiologist who did the angioplast on me in the hospital. Two enderic aspirins, two captoprils, and two metoprolol tartrates per day. I added the hawthorn myself. So when I start taking lisinopril next month do I have to quit the aspirin and hawthorn? And how can hawthorn hurt? They both reduse blood pressure, right? I do have hypertension problems.

  • 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.
  • Avoid lisinopril or any ace inhibitor
    This was the only drug I was taking other than low-dose aspirin 3x/week.
    Within 2 days I began coughing, as though something was deep in my lungs; became long severe coughing fits than threw out my back, sore all over. Then began runny nose, exhaustion, occasional mild chest pain. Not connecting the dots, after a month of this I returned to my dr., who prescribed an antibiotic and inhaler, saying I had asthma! After a week starting feeling worse, sore throat and sore lungs from coughing, in bed from exhaustion.
    After reading on-line about identical symptoms from LISINOPRIL, I immediately stopped it; now, 2 weeks later I am beginning to feel better -- cough much better. I am hoping I will be one of the lucky ones who does not have the cough continue. By the way, this drug reduced my bp from 140/100 to 110/80 BUT I'd rather have high bp than take this poison.
    Now I learn than many deaths have resulted from use of Lisinopril. Had this drug caused my death, no one would know my story as I have no relatives to tell it; am assuming many unreported have died and of course are not able to go on-line and tell their story post-death!
    All I can do is ask WHY is this drug allowed to be sold -- even stranger, in my case the drugstore is giving this poison away at no charge -- a first; but WHY?

Comments from related studies:

  • 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.
