From this study (11 months ago):
used Teva brand 10mg Lisinopril for 10+ years with no problems, pharmacy switched to Wokhardt brand Lisinopril in November 2012, began experiencing symptoms in late November 2012 that got steadily worse over time, I realized it was related to the timing of the new Lisinopril so I had the pharmacy switch brands to Lupin (have not been able to find Teva Brand again) Symptoms are less with Lupin brand but stll present.
