Re: anyone one lisinopril

I am also diabetic. I was on lisinopril for seven or eight yrs. The lowest dose of lisinopril is 2.5 and the highest is 40mgs. Lisinopril is suppose to be very helpful to diabetics due to the protection of the kidneys.

However, i finally developed an allergy to lisinopril. It does cause headaches, hair loss, hip and joint pain and a host of other things. The worst i suffered with lisinopril was the swollen lips, itching eyes, hives and throat closing. I just can't take lisinopril .

Delrae, just try to avoid any diuretic bcuz it definitely can increase glucose & cholesterol readings. Im battling both right now.

Re: anyone one lisinopril

I had a trial of lisinopril for about a month a couple of years ago, and the main effect I noticed was that it made me terribly, terribly irritable, like having a constant case of PMS (and I'm way past that now, thank heavens). After I finally blew my stack at somebody who didn't deserve it, I got back on my Univasc - but have to look for something else now because the manufacturer is d/c the generic univasc.
