Re: Lisinopril vs benicar
I took lisinopril for almost two years, and experienced pitting edema of my legs and ankles, occasional severe joint pain, and weight gain along with the usual persistant cough.
Switched to Benicar last week, and I couldn't be more pleased with how well it's working. BP is lower, edema is gone, cough is gone, and I'm losing weight.
Just depends on what works better for you.
