You are the first doctor that has mentioned this is a side effect of Lisinopril. I have been running marathons for 10 years. But it was not until I started taking Lisinopril that my marathon times slowed down significantly. My doctor does not equate the tiredness (way more than I am used to feeling) at the end of a race to the med. is there any study or documentation I can show him? Thank you for being the first to acknowledge a link to the drug and endurance athletes!View Thread
