It is highly unlikely that Lisinopril caused your cancer. You say you also take Atenolol. Both of these medications affect potassium levels in the blood. Altered potassium can cause muscle pain and cramping. The cancer also causes pain. If you are in remission make an appt ASAP. I pray for your recovery. Drink plenty of fluids, eat a mostly raw diet, and do all you can to stay well. Good luck.

Yesterday I ask my pharmacy to print me a copy of all the medicine i have taken and he is kind enough to print me from 2005 to present 2011. I have seen that I have been on lisinopryl since or maybe as early as 2005 to 2009. On 2008 I have been diagnose with Uterus cancer so i have an extensive Hysterectomy. By the way all symptoms that I have at the time I am taking lisinopryl is the pain on my hips which I cannot walk much and sit much and stand much. I have always infections which wont go away. after the hysterectomy, the hips pains go away and the infections go away too. After that I change Doctor and he gave me a different HB pills. Now one week ago I started feeling the pain again after the Doctor change my medication So I started digging on what mediation I am taking that resulted of me having a cancer on the uterus and this lisinopryl is the culprit. lisinopryl. at that time I am also taking Atenolol 100 mg.

I am seventy years old and in pretty good health, I am borderline type two diabetic. My doctor prescribed Metphormin and within a week I was passing multiple small kidney stones and after about a week , still passing stones, then I quit for a couple of weeks and the stones subsided, then I started taking the drug again and the stones started back up again, now I have had a history of stones in the past but nothing as frequent as this. I started taking 2000 mg. of Calcium each day and haven't been bothered with stones in several years until I started taking Metphormin. This is the only Generic drug that I know of for non insulin dependent diabetes. I may try it again for another test. I have decided that my health is my reasonability with loosing weight, diet and exercise.

I was diagnosed Type 2 diabetic late 2010 and started onn Medformin 250 mg twice a day. very strange that my blood sugars were normal afdter 1 week on the meds and continued to be normal even after having a none fasting blood sugar and A1C done, which were all normal as well.
Recently I had kidney stones from hell and was rushed to the hospital after being on Medformin for 6 Months.
Being in the pharmaceutcal field I am convinced that Medformin causes Kidney Stones. Drug companies do not report all side affects from clinical trials to the FDA, this I can tell you they use the data that is good for them to get their dug approved. I am sure that the numbers are higher for people developing kidney stones from Medformin.
Wil on Aug, 5, 2011:
I have been on Metformin 250mg twice daily for about 7 months. My first ever kidney stone event occured at 5 months with a second event at 7 months. Metformin was the replacement for Avandia which I had taken for years without incident. I am 68 years old.
