    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.
