Watching Out For Lisinopril Side Effects

While people who use this blood pressure normalizing drug seldom experience any Lisinopril side effects, there are a few who do and some of these are easy to counteract while others may pose a serious threat to a person's life. The more common and less dangerous Lisinopril side effects a person may experience after taking this drug include muscle cramps, coughs, headaches, dizziness and bouts of tiredness. Also included in the list of Lisinopril side effects you may commonly experience are diarrhea, vomiting, rashes and even possible impotence.

While these Lisinopril side effects may seem to be nothing but a bother, the makers of the drug still advice people who experience these more common side effects to consult with a doctor as soon as these side effects manifest themselves. These may seem to be nothing but a bother to some people but being careful and sure about what you are going through is crucial to keeping yourself healthy and in safe waters.

Some of the more serious Lisinopril side effects that seldom occur but do sometimes emerge are more a cause of worry and getting in touch with a doctor as soon as these are noted is imperative. Some of the rather serious Lisinopril side effects that may hit a person who is on this blood pressure normalizing medication include a difficulty in breathing and even a feeling of the throat closing up. Swelling of some parts of the face, namely the lips and the tongue, is also one of the more serious and severe Lisinopril side effects. Chest pains, fevers and a sore throat that signify an infection, sparse or almost no urine and a change in your heartbeat is also one of the severe Lisinopril side effects to look out for and warrants an immediate trip to the hospital or your doctor for care.
