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.

Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):
- 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.

- 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?
- Experience with morphine and xanax
I take MS contin for back pain, and xanax for anxiety. I was in the heart unit, and they decided to give me my morphine through the central line because I was having a lot of pain. The nurse pushed it in really slow, and afterword they asked me if I wanted my xanax, and I took it as well. 1 mg. I don't know how much morphine they gave me, but i began to hallucinate. I thought was dying..I remember trying to talk but the words wouldn't come out. I thought the nurse was asking me if I believed in Christ, and I said yes I love the Lord. At some point I was sure I had died, but I was calm and peaceful..there were several nurses in the room and I thought omg.. they've been keeping the secret of what happens when you die. I told them I was leaving because I wanted to go out in the hall, I was sure my deceased mother was out there looking for me, so I tried to remove my IV to get out of bed. They stopped me and I remember the nurse saying no its not your time. And I woke up the next morning.
