Been taking 10mg for 7 years with no side effects like weight gain, cough etc. It has controlled my BP nicely.

I have been taking it for 10 years, too. High BP came with both of my pregnancies. It went back to normal after my first child, but stuck around after the second. Keeping overweight or yo-yo-ing weight since baby #2 has kept my BP borderline high ever since. Started at 10mg daily then about 5-6 years ago it was increased to 20mg daily. It seems to keep it a normal and even slightly below normal range. As I'm losing weight now and exercising regularly, I can't wait to get off this medication. My goal is to be off the med by end of this year and have normal blood pressure.

Lisinopril doesn't affect weight loss. Beta blockers do --anything that ends on ol.

My husband took Lisinopril as well as my mother.Because of the continuous coughing they both were taken off. My husband is now on Diovan and no longer has the coughing issue.

I was taken off of it because of a cough. was put on calan and developed a one time case of congestive heart failure. was taking Norvasc and Isosorbide but was taken off those because of excessive fluid retention. am on only two now instead of 4 blood pressure meds feeling much better. I have learned to keep telling the doctor something is wrong until they listen.
