Re: Lisinopril

kelly,

The main side effect is constant nagging cough that makes ACE inhibitors impossible for many people to take.
If you don't get the cough, the pair of drugs will probably give you excellent control.

Re: Lisinopril

I take both of them with no side effects at all. They seem to work very well for me.

Re: Lisinopril

I didn't take the combination, just Lisinopril only for five years. I was fortunate and had no side effects whatsoever and got good control. I've since managed to get my BP under control without meds, though I'm back in the pre-hypertensive range, so will have to continue to watch it.

Re: Lisinopril

My son has taken lisinopril for about five years with no side effects. And I take hydrochlorothiazide and Vasotec, which is another ACE inhibitor, with no problems. Well, except for running to the bathroom for a couple of hours because of the diuretic!

Sorry, neither of us drinks, so I can't tell you anything about that aspect of it.
