I had taken Lisinpril for several years. But one afternoon my lips were getting bigger and bigger. Shortly after that my voice got hoarse. Then I had problems breathing which led me to the ER and was moved to another hospital by ambulance.

- 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.

- High blood pressure - find the right medication (2 responses)
I was going through the menopause with all the usual drama when I started feeling awful. Doc said that my blood pressure was through the roof and prescribed Lisinopril. This gave me technicolour dreams and a runny nose, so he switched me to Losartan. This made me soooo tired that I didn't want to get up. So then I tried Amlopidine. Fantastic! I haven't felt this well since I was on my teens. My message is ... don't put up with side effects. Change your drug until you find the one that works for you.

cAUSED SWELLING TO THE FACE AND THROAT, I COULDNT TALK
From this study (3 years ago):
I'm a stage IV Lupus Nephritis patient, currently trying to rescue my kidneys from end stage renal failure. Within 2 weeks of being on lisinopril for my elevated blood-pressure and hypertension, I started having this frightening allergic reaction where my entire face would swell up to the point where I looked like the offspring of an alien and a cabbage patch doll. Eyes, cheeks, lips, chin so swollen I didn't recognize myself in the mirror. We thought perhaps it was a reaction to the anemia shots I was going in for but when checked out, my doc immediately knew it was angioedema..something which I'd never heard of...and lisinopril was his immediate suspect. The warnings say this is a very uncommon thing, however, the statistics I've found on lisinopril put angioedema at the top of the side effect list. Moreover, it's hard on the kidneys and can actually cause kidney damage, which is why I'm in this boat to begin with. Anyway, at my doc's approval I've stopped the lisinopril and 2 days later I'm already noticing the swelling is less severe and this crap is leaving my system hopefully before it can do more damage. Idiots...
From this study (3 years ago):
on med for only 3 months, lips, tongue and throat swelled, Could not swallow or speak from swellingm of the throast, could only get out whispers. Started having trouble breathing, called 911 and was given IV in ambulance and drugs to help me breathe. Taken to hospital and kept overnight and given more meds to help ease the swelling. Was released the next day with prescriptions for steroids, pepcid and an epi pen. Was a severe and horrible experience. The doctor told me to immediately stop the lisinipril 10 mg, that it was known to cause this allergic reaction even after taking it for long periods of time.
