I've been taking Lisinopril for my high blood pressure. It works, really well. It also gave me a hacking cough, a sort throat, swollen sinuses, vocal chords that gave out easily, and lungs full of water. When I'm not coughing, I feel short of breath. And I'm so tired, I've been taking three or four naps a day, each of an hour's length.

Well, after two weeks on the drug, I bailed. It's not uncommon for people to have a problem with Lisinopril, and my doctor says the water gain, coughing, and all the rest should go away in four or five days. He put me on a new ACE inhibitor, in a different class, which I should tolerate better.

We'll see.

It's no wonder, then, that I don't feel like writing or posting.
