Lisinopril is an ACE inhibitor, which is marketed under the names Prinivil and Zestril. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lisinopril 

As a drug of the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor class (see http://www.krasovskylaw.com/ace-inhibitor.html), Lisinopril is used primarily in treatment of high blood pressure, heart failure, and after heart attacks. 

It is also used for preventing kidney and eye complications in people with diabetes.

Its indications, contraindications, and side effects are as those for all ACE inhibitors.

Lisinopril is used to treat congestive heart failure, hypertension, and other conditions related to heart attacks.

Lisinopril was introduced into the pharmaceutical market in the early 1990s. Lisinopril was developed by Merck & Co., but is is currently manufactured by AstraZeneca as well.

Unfrotunately, Lisinopril, like other ACE inhibitors has some very serious side effects. These Lisinopril adverse effects include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Angioedema is an area of swelling of the lower layer of skin and tissue just under the skin or mucous membranes. The swelling may occur in the face, tongue, throat and/or breathing passages (larynx) and can lead to suffocation and death. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angioedema

  • Liver Damage

  • Liver Failure

  • Fatal Liver Damage

  • Fainting

  • Rash

  • Dry Cough (see Angioedema)

  • Jaundice

  • Syncope

  • Anaphylais

  • Difficulty swallowing

  • Difficulty Breathing (see Angioedema)

  • Abdominal Pain

  • Decreased Urination

  • Dark Urine

  • Nausea

  • Muscle Cramps

Of these side effects, the ones that cause the most lawsuit involve liver complications. The liver damage that lisinopril might be fatal. In the past, patients have had to get liver transplants as a result of Lisinopril side effects. Some of these users were people who had no previous liver problems and were not much advanced in age.

If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of takng Lisinopril, you might be entitled to compensation. In order to maximize the size of the damages, it is important to hire an attorney from a Lisinopril law firm.
