: : Is anyone else taking Prinivil, and if so, are you having any side effects and what kind, and is it helping to lower your BP?
: For what it is worth I have been taking Prinivil for the last 7 weeks. It has had the desired effect of lowering my blood pressure and no side effects. However, medications can react with people differently, because there are a number of differnt medicines for high blood pressure your GP will make a choice and if you suffer side effects he will most likely try you on another brand.
I have been on the drug for over 15 years with good results.However, I experience swelling of the lower legs and feet and have been told that this is a probable side effect of the drug. Also, there is ocassional flushing of the face and tingling in the hands. Has anyone else experienced this?
