I have taken lisinopril for 11 years . I have had a red face for 10 years and just recently I broke out with a lupus type butterfly redness with scabs on each side of my face . the hospital had no idea what the cause was and when I went to my primary care doctor he had heard the servey on the radio about lisinopril and told me to get off of it NOW . After 1 week of being off of it my face no longer itches and most of the redness has disappeared

I was prescribed Lisinoprill when I had hypertension due to undiagnosed hypothyroid. After 3 years of being diagnosed and taking my thyroid meds my doctors were reluctant to re-evaluate my hypertension. I had severe red to purple face and neck and decided to wean myself off Lisinoprill. Over six months I did that and then discontinued it altogether. My neck and face have returned to normal coloration. I will bring this report and my results to my doctor. I have my own blood pressure cuff at home and my blood pressure remains stable.

I've been on Lisnopril for over 6 years. I noticed I started to get red face after 1 year of taking this medication. I never thought it would be from the meds. But now I know it definately is. I cannot stand it, it is so inbarassing. When I get out of the shower in the morning it looks like I have a serious sun burn all over my face I have to use cake makup to cover it.
