Not detrimental: It takes a tremendous amount of dedication to stay on a medical regimen every day of your life! it is important that med be taken as prescribed, but we all forget here and there. For lisinopril, it is not detrimental if you missed a dose especially if you have been taking it regularly (you have a good, steady level of it in your body already) and that your pressure is under good control. Good luck. ...Read more

I've been coughing constantly since stopping lisinopril. What can I do ?

Cetrizine helps: Since this cough is due to lisinopril, it will go away in few days. But if you can't tolerate it you can try antihistamines like Benadryl or cetrizine. If the cough persists even after a week of stoppage of Lisinopril then you might need to see your doctor. ...Read more

Don't worry: It would be more helpful if you told us what strength, but in general high doses are well-tolerated. The worst thing that might happen is your blood pressure might temporarily get a bit lower than usual, so if you feel dizzy or lightheaded sit or lie down (but this is unlikely). ...Read more
