Same thing happened to me last Thursday. I have been taking lisinopril for years, by 1:00 p.m. I notice a hive under my lip, I though maybe because my pupply had tried to get my nose playing and I did not feel a bite in my mouth. By 2:30 pm my husband said "what is wrong with your lip is swollen. I tried to blame it on the dog by 7:00 p.m. I told him I need to go to the dr. since I have asthma. The dr. blame it to me eating turkey. The next day I went to see my allergy dr. and she said "we. all drs. know about lisinopril reation, it's a good medicine but it causes reation. It took me 3 days to get the swollen out. I was given something for the itching which it make me sleepy all day. By Sunday if it not go away she said start steroids. Thank God it was betten Sunday. By reading this post from other people I believed and now it was lisinopril

My mom had to go to the ER this past week with a bad reation to Lisinopril, her throat and tongue was swelling so bad, she could not speak, she started out with red itchy eyes, her lips were swollen. Doctor took her off of it, she has been on it for over 3 years, it was a very scary experince for her and for us too.

I am a 58 year old female and I have been on lisinipril 10 mg for only 3 months. Last night I was sitting in a chair and was not feeling quite right, strange sensations in my head and ears. Then my lips and toungue started to swell. My lips were getting huge really fast and I started having trouble breathing. I could not swallow or talk since my throat was swelling, My voice was gone. I called 911 for an ambulance and tried to get as loud of a whisper forced out as I could, telling the operator I needed help that I could not breath very well. By the time the ambulance got here my skin was completely red, they gave me two shots to try and stop the allergic reaction from progressing and took me to the hospital. I was kept overnight and was given more IV meds to help the swelling. They sent me home late this morning with prescriptions for steroids, pepcid, and an epi pen in case it happened again. I was told to immediately stop taking my Lisinipril. I hope to never have that reaction again. If it happens to you, do not lay or sit down, walk or pace as fast as you can so your heart rate goes up and that will relese small amounts of adrenilen to help you out and most important get help as quickly as you can. Do not try to wait it out, it will not get better without meds.
