I had the same experience. Severe headache, leg weakness, and extremely high B/P. They gave me IV Benadryl in the hospital ER and it brought my B/P down. Since I stopped the Linsinopril my B/P had greatly lowered, the headaches are less, and the pressure in my head had decreased. I still have leg weakness. I'm taking routine Benadryl and stopped the Linsinopril 92 hours ago. No more extremely high B/Ps. Thank you for your post, it validates my suspicion that I had (have) brain edema. The

September 14, 2014
I took lisinopril for years and no problem until
I started new hep c treatment which
Has interferon and ribavirin and sovaldi
I have had a terrible gagging cough for
Over three months now even after therapy
Was over. Tried other bp medicines and
Nothing works. Discontinued bp meds for
Now and cough only bothers me a little
In the later hours of the day
I hope this is not permanent
Or maybe I have interstitial
Peumonitis which can be life
Threatening. Going to pulmonary
Specialists soon

I took Lisinopril and got the cough from Hell.
Tim  |  August 31, 2014
I have the same issue. I just started on Lisinopril and I wake up in the night with a terrible, strangling cough. It can take me an hour or two to get it under control. I'm probably going to need a new med.
Helena  |  April 26, 2014
I think dry cough is one of the listed side effects
April 11, 2014
I don't know if lisinopril cause you to cough,but mind start at bedtime every night. cough all nite 20 mg/12.5 mg.
DD  |  February 19, 2014
Agree with you. My husband was on it for years. They increased his dosage cough started had cough for 2 months then was taken off it. I had swollen ankles from another bp drug got taken off as bp was high BUT was also on Naproxon which can cause hbp .Was put on Lisinopril got cough, husband said it your meds but l thought l would try a month. Cough is really bad can't sleep. Horrible in public when you can't stop coughing at checkouts! So going back today to doctors as l am diving in Red sea

I am experiencing the same problem. It just dont feel good it in general. I had diabetes and got rid of that. Lost a lot if weight. Tomorrow I am cutting down to 5 mg a day instead of 10. I wish that I had never been out on it. I have majors leg and joint pain. I exercise a lot and I hurt more than I did before I lost weight and got on this med.
