I have been taking lisinopril for 5 years but recently in the last 3 months I have an unexplained rash on my arms that does not go away. I went ooff lisinopril for 3 days and it seemed to clear up but went back on it and the rash reappeared. I am out of town so I cannot go see my doctor at this time. Does anyone else have this side effect and have any options for a replacement. This drug has been very effective in managin my BP.

Here is additional information on your medication from the WebMD Drugs & Medication Center:

Lisinopril: Side Effects, Usage, Warnings, Interactions


There are over 3,000 user reviews of the drug as well.

Even though you are out of town, you can give your doctors office a call - he might be able to prescribe an optional drug that you can fill even if you are out of town.

Safe travels!

took lisinopril 40 mgs for 6 months. Then after switching to a cardiologist was put on 20 mgs plus hydrochlorothiazide ( diuretic). Did the job but developed a slight cough that woke me up at night. Also my creatine went up. Dr said no connection . Kaiser study says different 7% of those who took Lisinopril had as much as a 30% increase in Creatin leverl.

So he switched me to Losartan plus HCTZ. similar but not exactly an ACE inhibitor

No more cough. B P normal
