  • Resisted being put on this stuff for years for fear of swelling. Sure enough, I experienced pitting edema in legs and feet - MD changed my diuretic which took all the fluid off. BP is the best it's been in my whole life though!

  • Feet and ankle swelling greater with higher dosage. Moved to lowest dosage 2.5mg for best trade off between swelling and reduced angina. Blood pressure has slowly increased over the years. Just changing to Lisinopril for more effective BP management.

    How long did you take it?
  • swelling ankles and feet happened over many months so not obvious at first. Got really bad after 10 months use. Benazepril better in terms of no swelling, not as good in terms of lowering BP.

  • I wish I had known about the large number of side effects. Legs swelled to above the knee right away and diuretics did not help. Sense of smell decreased. Too many others to list. Didn't help BP much.

    High blood pressure
  • No side effects experienced after first couple of weeks from commencement. Initially a little dizziness. Taken in addition to olmesartan (Olmetec). Resting BP constantly ranges 118/65 to 130/75 but usually around lower reading.
