February 24, 2015
I googled "Lisinopril and anxiety" because I wondered if it could be behind the mild sense of anxiety I've been having since starting it. Your post makes me wonder even more; however, I can't really distinguish between whether it's the blood pressure medicine or the reason I'm on it--to keep my blood pressure from causing more atrial fibrillation, which itself has a similar sensation. I am post successful ablation for the a-fib and definitely not having that, but an increased heart rate ever

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

Metformin and Aleve
I was taking two pills a day and had to stop because I was constantly hungry. Maybe you nee to cut back to one.
Stephanie  |  August 23, 2014
I have been taking Metformin for about 4 yrs now, and just the thought of swallowing the pill makes me wanna gag. I hate the taste of it on my tongue. I also take it while I eat... at least before my last bite, so that I know that it will go down. Another thing I noticed is, when I forget to take it for a day, I get gassy when I start it again. I thought it was just me.

There is a time release Metformin which helped me with some reactions. Dr. almost didn't mention it though. Tammy

I have the runs all day. If I bend down 2 tie my shoe, underwear change. My stomach is upset all the time. I'm afraid to pass gas, I might shard myself.

My doctor prescribed 1000 mg Metformin twice a day. I took just the first evening and second day morning and evening. I had a total throw up the whole evening dinner and little lunch grapefruit. I stopped taking that. I just went back to my old pill Glyb/Metformin 2.5/500. I watch what I eat now in order to take just half of it once daily. If I have a big dinner, I had to take the whole pill. I try to eat less meats and more vegetables. My sis just warned me on the long taking Metformin

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

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

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

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

Metformin & Bad Breath
People with Chronic halitosis have no idea of how bad it is, when it is “on” or “off” and when it is really acutely tragic. Once the source is identified, a reasonable person will take every necessary action they know to do to remedy it or reduce it to a bearable level by all means necessary. I am a reasonable man, but unfortunately, i could not solve a problem i don't know how to fix.
I had suffered with it for over 5 years (correlating to my time on Metformin) and never knew the height, dept

metformin and stomach problems
I've been taking Metformin for 3 years. I take a 1000mg pill twice a day. I have never had any issues. I'd rather take Metformin than insulin injections for sure. Take Metformin just after eating a meal. I take mine after breakfast and dinner.
Rogio  |  January 10, 2015
Metformin gave me mild stomach cramps taking 4 pills at once. My doctor advised me to space them out during the day which helped. Oddly, after a few years, the cramping came back more severe, and I was taken off it (not knowing the consequences had I continued). The real question is: Insulin is one of the few drugs pregnant women CAN take, so it must be innocuous. Yet, why do doctors fool around with all this other stuff? Metformin and Actos never seemed to do anything for me, a Type II.
LearyMan  |  December 23, 2014
You are supposed to take Metformin with food it does nothing but cause stomach issues if you don't.

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.
