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

Lisinopril and wrinkles
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.
