    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Hi Anon_130207,

    I think that you should speak with your doctor about the possible side effects. Unfortunately, I am unable to find this information, but wish you the best of health. Take care!
    Best Wishes! Amelia

    This may help to answer your question. It isnt worth the risk.

    BTW, a known side effect of lisinopril is a very serious cough. I was on Lisinopril but the coughing got so bad, I was throwing up....needless to say, I change meds (I am limited because my Medicare doesnt pay for a lot of the brand names and even some generics are too expensive for me.
