Comment:
I had borderline high blood pressure and was prescribed lisinopril. Until I went to an allergy specialist I did not realize that my chronic cough was not due to allergies/asthma. My reaction to lisinopril was not only the chronic cough, but also choking on food and drink. Within just a few days after stopping the lisinopri, my coughing/choking stopped completely.

Comment:
Started on Lisinopril/HTZ combo at 10mg. Immediately got my BP down from 145/90 to 120/80 within a week. After about two months, it started to creep back up. My Dr. upped the amount to 20mg, and that seems to do the trick. I do get a dry tickle cough from time to time, but very minor. Overall very effective med for me.

Side effects that mimic a terrible case of flu, extreme fatigue, that "I feel like I'm going to die, will this ever end" sensation. I have tried to stay on this med and others like it but never make it past 2 weeks. If this one makes you sick, chances are others of its type will too.

Comment:
Doctor suggested this medication due to Type II diabetes to protect the kidneys. Also for moderate HP. My HP initially came down to normal range, but has since gone back to moderate-usually when I visit the doctors. Do have dry cough from time to time but don't know if it's attributable to med.
