    Well it took some months for it to happen, but I got the dry, hacking cough. Tickle in the throat. Very annoying. Doctor told me to stop taking the pills. So far after not having it for 5 days, I feel like a new person. Cough is slowly going away. Waiting to see what else they put me in this week. Was taking 20mg a day of Lisinopril.

I researched the side effects and found out that swelling of the throat was a rare side effect. I contacted my doc ... Show Full Comment

    After taking Lisinopril for about one year I had a sudden severe attack of vertigo that sent me to the ER.
