Title: Lisinopril
Post by alienspacebabe on May 2nd, 2008, 12:57pm
I've noticed that I'm having fewer, lighter rogue hits since I started taking Lisinopril.

Here's an article on its use in preventing migraines:

and another one from NIH:

An interesting experience. However, a search on PubMed to link with CH produced zip.

But who knows what next month will bring. <bg>

I started taking lisinopril about 3 years ago, and it seems as though, while my cycles are about the same length, and the mega-hits are still total skull-f*ckers, the number of really bad ones has been reduced. Too many outside factors to conclude that it's the lisinopril (i.e., other meds, age, etc.), but it's certainly something to think about.

I take lisinopril for high blood pressure.  I am glad that you are finding something that is helping you!!  Keep us posted on the results you are having.

I was prescribed lisinopril for high blood presssure. Soon after I started coughing like a chain smoker with lung cancer for several weeks before I discovered that lisinopril was the cause. Now on Amloc with no side effects.

The good old ACE hack!  I'm only taking 5mg/day right naw and still have the cough.

Hi Bob

I actually tried about 3 or 4 other meds aftre Lisiniprol that still made me cough - some less, some more, before my Doc hit on the Amloc. It works great - BP now 125/80, was 150/90

Don't settle for the cough - get your doc to try something else.

I see my cardiologist next month and will talk with him about it.  My BP is ok without it but I have a left bundle branch block, which the doc says can cause problems for some people in later years.  The lisinopril along with a beta block (coreg) is supposed to help avoid the later problems.
