OK, I just figured out it's the Lisinopril making me ill - I was put on Lisinopril about a month ago for high B/P , Started having severe headaches and I mean SEVERE like the top of my head was gonna explode and the pain behind my eyes and the back of my neck was unbearable, vision problems nausea/vomiting trouble speaking,thinking, and even walking, lack of appetite,no energy and severe weakness and heaviness feeling especially in my legs. I also developed quite a tremor and extreme shakiness plus many other symptoms...Became so ill at the onset I stayed in bed with a barf bucket by my side for 3 days until I could no longer take it anymore and my husband took me to ER = $125 co-pay they sent me home with some pain and nausea meds. as well as anti anxiety medication...My symptoms persisted and I continued follow up's with my PCP @ $25 co-pay per visit, PCP sent me for CT Scan of my head = $150 co-pay...The results were fine nothing could be found I was told...Symptoms continued to worsen, PCP sent me to Neurologist @ $35 co-pay per visit, Neurologist sent me for much blood work, an MRI with contrast and a C-spine xray @ a total cost of over $300 to me for co-pay for those tests, All came back normal...Was sent for even MORE blood work...All came back normal, The only thing out of the norm was my Blood pressure...So they increased my dosage of Lisinopril...I began to notice that after 24 hours and just before taking my next daily dose of Lisinopril that my symptoms became somewhat better as If I sort of felt like perhaps I finally did not feel quite as bad as I had been feeling...But within 2 hours of taking my daily dose symptoms returned with a vengeance...So it MUST be the Lisinopril and today 04/16/2011 I have decided that I will NOT take my daily dose of Lisinopril and well...I have a feeling that I will soon start feeling much better at least I hope so.
P.S. Is there a Lawsuit against this Horrible Drug ?? If there is not there should be!!!
