Re: lisinopril and lump in throat

It may help for people to know that aprovel also goes by the name of irbesartan....

I haven't taken irbsartan but I have taken lisinopril and can certainly understand why your husband feels the way he does about meds...I do hope you get the info you need to help your husband....he needs to know that the right meds can make a difference!

Good luck!

Re: lisinopril and lump in throat

Hi,

Does your husband have any stomach problems, such as acid reflux? Many people with LPR - an extension of GERD of sorts - experience this "lump in the throat feeling.
If you go on the acid reflux board and do a search on a lump in the throat, you'll get many hits. Just another possibility.

Re: lisinopril and lump in throat

A friend of mine who takes meds. for high blood pressure told me that she's always clearing her throat since starting the meds. I'm not sure which one she takes, but she said it's known to cause that symptom.
