Effect of Lisinopril

Lisinopril belongs to the drug group of ACE inhibitors, but together with Captopril is a special feature. It does not have to be activated in the body, unlike the other ACE inhibitors, so it is not a prodrug, but is directly as an active form given.

Lisinopril only needs to be taken once a day as its duration of action is approximately 24 hours. However, its effect does not begin until one hour after ingestion. In addition, lisinopril is an active ingredient that is ingested only a quarter (25%) in the body. Because the drug is mainly excreted from the kidneys with urine, the dose must be reduced in patients with severe renal impairment and deficient urinary output.

Potential Lisinopril side effects may include:

    Lisinopril for High blood pressure

    I took bisoprolol for 1 year (10 mg a day) and gained 10 kg without changing my eating or exercise habits. Besides, I am always and always tired, listless in everyone! Regards, regularly have diarrhea, stomach ache, heartburn, heart problems and difficulty breathing. At the slightest effort, I get out of breath, as if I had a marathon behind me. In addition, my feeling of temper is weakened.

    Lisinopril for High blood pressure

    Lisinopril was well tolerated but did not bring any significant improvement. Lisibeta has many side effects. Tired of the day, cheery in the evenings, fatigue, bones hurt, abdominal distension, nausea and dizziness. Frequent urge to water.

    Lisinopril for High blood pressure

    Lisinopril 5mg lowered my high blood pressure to the desired level, from the known side effects occurred in me (53 years, male) dry cough and extreme fatigue in the morning, no matter how long and deep I have slept before. This only comes after an hour (eg after I was running), but stops in a weaker form. I also get tired much earlier in the evening than before taking Lsinopril. Currently (after about 2 months) I am still waiting for the symptoms to go away, if not, I will switch to another drug.

    Side effects: Fatigue; Cough

    I.) permanent drowsiness (feeling in a bell), tingling in the extremities, calf cramps, feeling of pressure on the bronchi, dizziness, circulation problems of the legs during exertion (climbing stairs), impaired vision: a) strong photosensitivity, b) on glare it lasts very long until vision is possible again, c) sporadic tremors in front of the eyes (starts in one corner and then continues over the field of vision of both eyes, later appeared several times a day), short-term loss of orientation. II.) Later hospital stay because of tachycardia + elevated temperature + high blood pressure + high ck values in the blood (due to calf cramps). III.) Then circular hair loss in 4 places. After discontinuation of lisinopril, the side effects under I. disappear completely within 48 hours. It remains to be hoped that the cause of III.) Has eliminated hair loss.
