Discussions that mention lisinopril

High & Low Blood Pressure board


Although I take Lisinopril and have no apparent side effects, I've read where many people develop the "Lisinopril Cough". Apparently, it's a frequent side effect of the drug. I would contact your physician. He may want to try a different bp med for you.

Good luck.
Unfortunately there are no known ways to suppress the cough that are approved. Some experimental things involving dangerously high doses of iron have been mentioned (PLEASE DON'T TRY THAT!!!!!). Nothing at all medically safe has been found to work. Very frustrating as lisinopril is a cheap and very effective drug for those that don't get the cough.

I had the cough too. Just unbearable. Now I'm on an ARB which unfortunately have no generics available. Sorry :(
