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.
