Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 year ago):
even on fentanyl no relieve of any kind
From this study (4 years ago):
While on Lisinopril, these symptoms increased gradually over time. I did not notice the connection between the drug and the problems I was having for a long time. After talking to my doctor about the way I was feeling I decided to stop the Lisinopril completely (on my own). It has been about ten days, and I feel much better. Still have the thyroid issue to work out though (if it is not a side effect of Lisinopri--not sure about this yet).
