I have been taking lisinopril for several years without any

Customer Question

I have been taking lisinopril for several years without any noticeable side affects, but now I am experiencing extreme exhaustion, dry throat, and prolonged coughing.
Could the problem still be lisinopril ?

This is Dr. David

lisinopril often will cause cough as a side effect.

prolonged cough can cause dry throat.

lisinopril can cause fatigue.

you should talk to your doctor about stopping the lisinopril and changing you to another blood pressure medication

like a beta blocker or a calcium channel blocker.

your fatigue should also be worked up with more blood work

to check your CBC, hemoglobin levels, ferritin, iron levels, B12, Vitamin D, thyroid hormone levels to start with
