Yes: Particularly with medications called ace inhibitors such as Lisinopril - pretty much any blood pressure medication whose generic name ends in -pril.

Benadryl: Benadryl can help reduced the Serling but it has the side effect of making you sleepy. You can try Claritin or Zyrtec. Adding Zantac,( a medicine which is also an antihistamine but mostly used for gastritis or reflux,), may help as well. Keep in mind though if this a recurrent problem, you need to see your physician to determine the cause. ...Read more

Probably Allergy: Take some allergy pill like Claritin/Zyrtec or Benadryl and see if it helps with the lip swelling. Check your temp to make sure you dont have fever. If you have any other symptom like sore throat or feel any bumps in mouth or tongue, a quick trip to the local urgent care clinic like Wallgreens or CVS would be a good idea to get it checked out. Feel better. ...Read more

Are swollen lips always due to an allergic reaction?

No: Swollen lips are not always secondary to an allergic reaction. This can occur after exposure to food allergy or another allergic trigger but it can also occur secondary to increased histamine release with no known cause. Other causes include underlying autoimmunity and inflammation. There are hereditary causes that also lead to swelling where a patient may not have associated itch. ...Read more
