I got this pill for high blood pressure. Causes a tickle cough, very annoying, especially when it’s not known as a side effect.

I've had all 3 different kinds for high blood pressure. Each one had its own side effects. Now I've got this one and I thought it was over. My blood pressure was sitting really nicely at 124/82, but the feeling of pressure on my chest hasn't changed. I've also got a dry cough as well which isn't good for you so if it carries on I think I will be stopping with it.

I coughed so much I thought I must have lung cancer. Luckily enough the GP was able to switch my medicines quickly and I was no longer coughing up stuff.

I started taking lisinopril because I was no longer responding to atenolol. I had been taking that for years without any problems. Most of all, in the first weeks after starting it, I had loads of headaches. Then as the weeks progressed I got gradually more depressed. Normally I'm really positive and proactive. If anything happened, though, I was totally knocked for six, c[read more...]ould hardly bear it and isolated myself. That was until I realised that I was acting really strangely. I read in the patient information leaflet that this can happen with lisinopril. I stopped taking it straight away and after 2 days I was back to normal.

Since February, I've been given lisinopril, made by Sandoz. For years I've had a different brand. But since I've been taking this brand, I've had loads of stomach complaints and all day long a pressing feeling on my chest.

Since I've been taking this medicine in I've been nauseous all day long, the GP reckoned I should try taking just half a tablet but still nauseous.
