I thank you so much for sharing your experience with us, pb2162, because I was almost going insane after months of torment, since I was prescribed Lisinopril for high blood pressure. I developed a persistant dry cough that never goes away. It keeps me from sleeping at night or taking naps during the day. I got to the point I have no energy for absolutely anything. I was chewing cough drops that were doing nothing.
When I asked my doctor to help me cure this cough she just prescribed a medicine for allergies, and of course, this didn't help me either. For some reason I thought my cough could be related to Lisinopril and did some research online. To my surprise, there are many people who have been or are experiencing the same problem I just described.
Yes, I agree we have to do something to get this med pulled off the market. Even if it doesn't affect all people who take this medication, it does ruin the life many others, and this is unacceptable!!!!View Thread
