- I too have hashimoto's and hydrocephalus
I have been HYPOTHYROID since at least 18 years old, now 43, and last 2 years found out that I did test positive for Hashimotos and was told I have no thyroid left. When I was 26, I had visual disturbance and went to the ER. Was told by the neurologist that I had mild hydroencephaly, and may require a shunt. Due to lack of insurance, went years with no treatment or follow up. Now have numerous problems with Hashimotos/Hypothyroid and investigating the correlation between the Hydroencephaly and Hashimotos. Is this the only study of the two relations?
- 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.

- Awful lisinopril raised my liver enzymes too high
That awful lisinopril raised my liver enzymes high, gave me a rash too . I feel poisoned , I tried to quit it and my bp skyrocketed . I had some clonodine so I took half of a one milligram pill and my bp lowered. Now my dr says because I am on atenolol I have to stop it before I can take clonodine . So I am trying, but lisinopril is a terrible drug. These doctors push it on us , I wonder why.
- 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

- Nuvigil & prilosec caused horrible experience
Both the pharmacy and doctor didn't have this interaction in their system after 4 ER trips I finally looked this interaction up. The problems didn't appear for 3 weeks after I started taking Nuvigil. So I didn't connect the two...it was a horrible experience.
- 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.
