Lisinopril Liver Damage

Lisinopril, also known as Zestril and Prinivil, is an ACE inhibitor used to control high blood pressure. In the past few years Lisinopril side effects have been linked to Lisinopril liver damage and Lisinopril liver failure. Both liver damage and liver failure are life-threatening and often fatal. Lisinopril lawyers are reviewing claims and looking into a Lisinopril lawsuit.

Lisinopril Liver Damage

lisinoprilhighbloodpressure Generic Lisinopril, often misspelled as linisiprol, linisopril or lisiniprol, is sold under the brand names Prinivil and Zestril. Lisinopril is used to control high blood pressure and treat congestive heart failure, and belongs to a class of drugs called angiotensin-converting-enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. Lisinopril combined with hydrochlorothiazide, is marketed by a number of pharmaceutical companies to treat hypertension (high blood pressure). Hydrochlorothiazide is a water pill (thiazide diuretic) that helps prevent your body from absorbing too much salt, which can cause fluid retention. Recent findings in patients taking lisinopril indicate a risk for lisinopril liver damage or lisinopril liver failure. 

Lisinopril and Liver Transplant

tylenolliverbiopsy Most complaints stem from people who were prescribed lisinopril combined with hydrochlorothiazide. Because most liver damage complaints have occurred within the last few years, it is speculated that there may be a generic formulary now marketed without clinical studies. Lisinopril was the third ACE inhibitor introduced to the market in the early 1990s.

Two recent cases have confirmed that lisinopril directly caused the destruction of the patient’s liver and in each case it was nearly fatal: Both patients required liver transplants. Both lisinopril users are young adults in their 30s with no prior history of liver problems and they both took lisinopril for a relatively short time (one of the victims, a young and healthy mother, took it for 6 weeks). Their hospital and medical records and medical personnel attribute causation of liver destruction to lisinopril.

According to a 1995 report by PubMED, chronic hepatitis and liver damage can be caused by lisinopril.

Lisinopril Warnings

drugsideeffects To date, the lisinopril product labeling indicates that it may cause liver damage and not liver failure. ( Lisinopril does contain a black box warning which states that ACE inhibitor drugs that act directly on the renin-angiotensin system can cause injury and even death to a developing fetus when used during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy.)

According to one manufacturer, if the liver cannot process lisinopril, it is simply flushed out through the kidneys, but in some people the medication is being stored in the liver.

Although acute liver failure (ALF) mostly affects young people who are otherwise healthy, it can occur in people of all ages. A phD in pharmacology has confirmed that Lisinopril “contains all the ingredients that makes it hazardous and it has the ability to destroy the liver in young adults.” However, it is possible that the drug can destroy anyone’s liver—at any age.

ALF encompasses both fulminant hepatic failure (FHF) and subfulminant hepatic failure (also known as late-onset hepatic failure). FHF usually occurs within eight weeks of the onset of symptoms in a patient with a previously healthy liver, while subfulminant hepatic failure typically occurs in patients with liver disease for up to 26 weeks before the development of hepatic encephalopathy—a worsening of brain function that occurs when the liver is no longer able to remove toxic substances in the blood.

Lisinopril Liver Damage Symptoms

Lisinopril is just one of more than 900 drugs, toxins and herbs that can cause liver injury, making drug-induced hepatic injury the most common reason to withdraw an approved drug.

Signs of such liver damage include dark urine, fatigue, jaundice, nausea and stomach/abdominal pain. Read more: lisinopril side effects for more information on lisinopril side effects and precautions.

Lisinopril Lawsuits

Attorneys have been contacted by lisinopril consumers nationwide reporting liver damage or failure and they are currently reviewing those medical records. If you have experienced Lisinopril liver damage or failure, you should seek legal help. Lisinopril claims allege that the manufacturer has designed and distributed a dangerous drug without appropriate testing and without giving all the warning signs to doctors and patients.

LISINOPRIL LEGAL ARTICLES AND INTERVIEWS

Lisinopril Suspected As Cause of Death
Lisinopril Suspected As Cause of Death Buffalo, NY A negative impact on liver function is not amongst the more common Lisinopril side effects. Be that as it may, some patients taking the oft-prescribed treatment for high blood pressure have experienced Lisinopril liver damage, including a woman who posted to a blog in late 2010 that her (acute liver failure) was caused "by a blood pressure medicine called Lisinopril," Jennifer Roberts wrote in October of that year, by way of a post to the blog transplantcafe.com. "(Lisinopril) shut my liver down within six weeks. [READ MORE]

Gluten-Free, Lisinopril-Free?
Gluten-Free, Lisinopril-Free? Seattle, WA Chances are, you know someone who is on a gluten-free diet to help treat digestive problems. This diet is fast rising in popularity, and at the same time, so is an increase in prescriptions for medications such as Lisinopril. But Lisinopril comes with serious side effects, including liver damage and digestive-tract problems, such as celiac disease and irritable bowel syndrome. It would be interesting to find out how many Lisinopril consumers believe they are wheat-intolerant and are on gluten-free diets [READ MORE]

Lisinopril—Hidden Dangers
Lisinopril—Hidden Dangers Las Vegas, NV Many prescription drugs are as common as aspirin; it's no wonder that many consumers don't read warning labels or consider that a medication could be associated with side effects.

In 2014, 4 days after going to the ER with discomfort. I was told that it was a digestive issue-drank a milky substance-told to take 3 days off. 4 days later, my heart fluttered, went into AFib and I had a heart attack and died. Drs. "couldn't believe" that I was alive. I thank the Lord. The cardiologist told that my potassium level was too low and was the cause of the attack. The week prior to the attack, I had begun a prescription of hydrochlorothiazide. This diuretic wiped out my potassium. I should have been supplementing it, I was told. After the attack, I took Lisinopril for about 2 wks and coughed every night. My voice changed. I was also given Xarelto for about a little over a week and began to have abdominal pain and burgundy colored urine. Attorneys in SC seem to be afraid to address this lack of medical professionalism. They told me I had to search for medical experts to prove the ER or my dr. negligent. I hesitated to take the BP meds in the first place and look what happened when I did. Ask questions, do research, make notes, before/when taking medication. Your life matters.

I was on Lisinopril for blood pressure. I developed a persistant cough. It kept me up and night and I carried throat lozenges with me everywhere. It took a specialist to tell me it was the drug lisinopril was the problem. I am a vocalist and could not sing. Since coming off this drug the symptoms have lessened but I still have a scratchy throat. Is there a class action lawsuit over the effects of this drug. It caused me a great deal of suffering.

I am diabetic and was prescribed lisinopril 2.5 to protect my kidneys. I finished my 90 day supply. During the 90 days I had a cough that kept getting worse. I COULDN'T SLEEP, MAKE BUSINESS PHONE CALLS, EXCERCISE. The cough was terrible and made me miserable. Things got worse when I developed a rash, (Intertrigo) redness, burning, and itching in the skin folds. These areas produce a musty smell which could not be washed away with 3 to 4 washings a day. This resulted in me turning into a recluse. I took myself off of LISINOPRIL.
Three weeks have passed and the cough is lessening and the rash is slowly going away. Maybe in a couple of weeks, I will get my life back.

This past March, I went to my GYN for my annual check up. I told him that I had been experiencing stomach pain, nausea, weight loss and vomiting. He ordered blood work, which came back abnormal. It showed a high level of liver enzymes.

He referred me to an internist who did two separated blood tests. They both showed high liver enzymes as well. He then referred me to an gastro doctor. He ran blood work, which hasn't come back yet, but I'm sure that it will show the same thing.

I've always exercised and had a relatively healthy diet. I've never smoked and hardly drink, except an occasional glass of wine. To have all of this happen to my liver and not know the cause has been very hard on me- physically and emotionally.

I'm glad I came across this website. I hope that the lawyers can make these pharmaceutical companies pay for all of the pain/suffering that they've caused everyone. If I had known that Lisinopril could cause liver damage, I would've NEVER taken it!

I have not have liver problems; however, I have been hospitalized and put on a heart monitor due to dangerously high potassium levels last year. My level this week was again dangerously high. I have now been taken off this medication as it is suspected to be the cause.
I have had dizziness, headaches, and memory issues. It sounds like this stuff may be the cause of those too.

I have been on Lisinopril for the past 2 years and within that time as I am today, experiencing strong continuous coughing that has me choking and unable to sleep at night. Informed my doctor about the horrible coughing and white substance that comes up, she informed it was acid reflux and wanted to describe an additional bill...which I refused. I have experience several cases of my throat closing where I had to gasp to breathe. I've also experience extreme cramping in my legs, memory problems and swelling

Been on lisinipril 1 month and have not got a decent sleep since and I'm tired so I sleep all the time but restlessly. Seems like I'm depressed. Had the cough for a few days and again when I was going to stop the med. Have the leg cramps all the time. Screwed up my relationship because of the agitation from the med and the depression it's causing. Read all about the side effects and the fact it's made from viper venom. I don't want kidney damage or skin problems like my aunt got. She got serious skin problems from ace inhibitor. Not sure which one but as soon as she stopped it started getting better. My blood pressure was better than perfect on the med but it wasn't that bad prior. I'll work with my diet because this stuff is starting to cause itching and hives as well. Maybe I'll try a water pill only.

I was taking Lisinopril in 2013 and after taking it for 6 months, I came out of a major surgery and when I woke up it felt like my throat had closed up. After a few minutes I was fine. Then while in my room sitting up talking to the nurse it felt like my throat closed up again. Finally they all played it off as an asthma attack. Then I started throwing up every day. 7 weeks after my surgery I started having chest pains numbness in my arms and legs. Test after test was done which all came back negative. Was put on a heart monitor for 30 days, started having dizziness, still constant numbness in arms and legs and still throwing up every single day. I finally got so tired of it that I told my doctor that I thought it was the Lisinopril and demanded to be taken off of it. So the doctor puts me on another medication that was similar to Lisinopril (can't remember name). Took this medication for 3 days, still the same thing as with the Lisinopril. I again returned to my doctor and told him that I can't take this new medication either, he put me on a simple water pill and the day I started taking the water pill, the numbness in arms and legs are basically gone, no more chest pain, no more dizziness and the daily throwing up stopped.

I have been using Lisinopril for 20 years, never had the associated cough but when I had infections my throat would close if I coughed or cleared my throat but recently when the dosage was increased (I am 65) my throat closed more frequently and more severely. That is completely closed (larynx too I believe) so no air passed but within a few minutes it gradually returned to normal. Terrifying to wonder if you will ever breathe again! All doctors (except the last) said 'no' it could not be the Lisinopril. I stopped the medication myself and got a doctor to prescribe something else. I am now on zero medication but the problem has not yet cleared... I am hoping! I will write again if I live through this. (One doctor even started to gesture large and small with her fingers and told me I had a large throat so it could not be happening!!!)

I am a 76 year old woman who went from being active to bedridden because of Lisinopril. My doctor put me on this drug about five or six year s ago and I've had nothing but one health issue after another ever since. I told my dr. my hair started falling out. She said,'Oh,you have more hair than the rest of us put together'. Then I told her I couldn't lift my arms. She pulled my arm up over my head and said,'yes you can'. Then I told her I was getting weaker.She said,'it's post polio syndrome', because I had polio in 1945. My throat started swelling and that made breathing and swallowing difficult. I thought it was because of 'post polio symdrome' like she said. ThenI started having excessive amounts of thick,white phlegm in my throat which would get in my windpipe while I was sleeping and I almost choked to death trying to get it out. This got to be a nightly occurance until I was scared to go to sleep at night. I'm so short of breath I'm panting after taking a few steps. I have back pain so severe I can only stand for eight minutes.Yes,I timed it. My tongue is swollen and I lisp when I talk. I had a perfect memory but now I constantly forget the simplest things. The ringing in my ears is so loud I have diddiculty hearing. All of these symptoms began after I started taking Lisinopril but I never associated them with the drug because of what my doctor said. Finally,about three weeks ago my daughter said her friend started having the thick phlegm and she had began taking Lisinopril.Her doctor changed her to another drug. I looked online for side effects of Lisinopril, and I had almost all of them. My kids were getting ready to put me in a nursing home!!! I immediately stopped taking the drug. It's been three weeks and the phlegm has stopped so I'm able to sleep at night,my throat swelling has gone down. I still feel weak because I've been bedridden for years now. Lisinopril has totally destroyed my health!!!! I read somewhere it's made from Brazilian snake venom!!

For me everything started after a shot of depo provera after my third kid, I was already 40 years ago, now 8 years later I somehow understand what happened, my bp went up and the doctor put me on lisinopril, I don't remember the order, but, I was prescribed cetirizine for allergies, that I took for over a year, (when I stop it, I went through hell) I also was given beta blockers for anxiety, after a while I suspected that all of my illnesses were related to the medicines I was taking and stop them all, it's been over a year and now I am healthy, no allergies, normal bs and bp, I still have anxiety but I am working on that, I try not to take anything even natural supplements for a long time, I have not seen my doctor for over a year, I don't think they do it on purpose, I just think they don't really know always what are they doing, they talk to you for no more than 10 minutes and prescribe anything, at least for me everything had been related to what the doctors have given me, my husband is taking lisinopril too and he goes to the doctor all the time, they say he has liver damage already.

I am white male. 60 years old. 5'10' 175#.
I have been on Lisinopril since 2008. In September 2010 I had 4 stents put in after heart attack. I went from 215# to 175# in about 6 months. i regularly walk 3 to 5 miles a day.
August 2015 I developed "ACE Cough" that was relentless. Went to doctor"s". They could not figure it out. I was anemic RBC was 12.0 and dropping. Had a colostomy exam and they found only a 3mm non cancerous polyp and removed it. Doctor told me my cough was Lisinopril so I contacted my Cardiologist and he told me to drop my Lisinopril and monitor BP for 10 days. All BP readings are 120/80 or lower.
MY COUGH IS 90% gone after 10 days. It was a horrible cough, unlike anything I ever had before. I have been suffering from constipation for five years. I eat well, get fiber and would often have to use laxatives to be regular. I hope I have no other organ damage since I have been taking it for 8 years! I will give BP data to my cardiologist on Monday

I was on lisinopril for 20 days and nobody knew what was going on with my pancreas. I was having severe pain in my abdominal areas and every time i eat the pain got worse. I was hospitalized the first time for 3 days 2 nights. Then approximately a week later the pain came back and it was worse. My blood pressure went up to 180/120 and they doubled my dosage. That caused my pancreas levels to sky rocket. I was transferred to IU health in Indianapolis and through cultures was told I was allergic to this medication. I had to have a stint put in my pancreas duct and that's only temporarily. I go back end of this month to have it removed and a bigger one put in for 4 weeks. Then hopefully the duct right off the pancreas will not collapse again.

Currently I have been without a voice for over five months now.I did recently see an Ear nose and throat Dr. He told me both issues were a direct result of being on Lisinopril, and to get off of the medication immediately! I've been off of it for a week now and still have the cough and laryngitis. Last night I went to the ER because of severe stomach pains.

I took Lisinopril for four years and during the last year, I ended up in the hospital twice for very low hematocrit and hemoglobin levels. I was given several blood transfusions both times. I have been off of this drug four months and my levels are staying at the normal ranges. I also had four liters of blood develop in my abdomen and had to have abdominal surgery to suction it out. That was in December 2014 and to this day, the doctors do not know where it came. Do I have a case?

On May 31, 2014, the second day of taking Lisinopril, my tongue and throat swelled up. I made it to the ER, and ended up in a coma for five days, due to Angioedema. I almost died. I contacted the FDA. This medicine needs to be taken off the market.

On June 17, 2013, my father was pronounced dead by an ER physician who stated that my father had angioedema in his tongue, throat, and upper airway so bad that it cut off his airway and caused him to go into cardiac arrest. She stated that she believed it to be due to the fact that he was taking Lisinopril at the time of his death because she had seen other patients who had experienced the exact same problems my father had while taking Lisinopril.

O n my second day off taking Lisinopril, my tongue swelled, and my throat closed-up. I was in a coma for 5 days, they tried to trachea me, but couldn"t do to swelling. They ended-up intubating me through my nose. There is a law firm called Smidt out of Dallas, that is interested in people who was affected by Lisinopril. Please call their number 1-866-xxx-xxxx. Right now because they think there may not be a lot of folks affected by it.

I am a 44-year-old male and have been taking Lisinopril since I was 23 years of age. I have recently had a severe allergic reaction, which is known as angioedema. I woke up with my upper lip severely swollen, and shortly after my throat felt as though it was about to close up. Luckily my wife insisted that I go to the emergency room because she was concerned about my airway closing up. I later found out that this was a reaction from Lisinopril, which is an ace-inhibitor that treats blood pressure. I had to stay in the hospital for a couple of days as well as miss work. I was terrified how all of a sudden I had a deadly reaction from a medication that I had been taking for years.

I soon was unable to keep my balance and was severely SOB,horrible headaches, this went on and on, I complained to many times to count, and was even told it was due to my weight problem. Which bt the way I gained 45pds due to not being able to swim or walk anymore. So in turn after being put in the hospital for High blood pressure they increased my dose another 10 milligrams. then my legs and feet began to swell and I could not understand it, only to be told it was due to my weight and to much salt intake?? My skin started to dry out and itch all over my body. Due to No health insurance, I was left to suffer. Finally a nurse suggested to the ER doctor that it maybe the HB medicine Lisinopril , only to be told no! Well I woke up last saturday to crushing pain in my chest and stomach, and then my lips and hands began to swell, soon my tongue and throat followed, steroids, pepcid and benadryl, ativan..and I am still battling this..I'm scared and so tired..I pray for a end to this nightmare soon.

I was prescribed Lisinopril 5-6 years ago and developped a bad cough. I went back to the Dr. who prescribed complaining of the cough (hacking and choking to the point where I could not swallow or breathe, couldn't sleep) they gave me some cough medicine I think. I went to an ear nose and throat Dr who checked me out and it seems there was a third Dr I went to. They all collected fees and I of course told them all the meds I was on but no one had a reason for my cough. On a hunch I got on the internet and looked up side effects for Lisinopril and there were people going off like crazy ranting about their horrible cough. I immediately stopped taking it. It took 2-3 weeks before my symptoms subsided. I have run into numerous people since then who had a horrible cough that lasted for weeks. One was a co-worker, one was our music minister, both times I asked them if the were taking any new blood pressure meds their reply "yes" my next question, is it Lisinopril? Both times it was. I can count on both hands the number of people I have run into with the same reaction to it. Every time the DRs couldn't figure out what the problem was. I have this cough that comes and goes and I often wonder if it has anything to do with the Lisinopril. Anyone hear of someone having a permanent cough as a side effect?

After taking 1 Lisinopril pill for the first time ever, my father experienced extreme swelling in his lips and face. In addition, his airways closed and according to the hospital doctors and nurses working on him, he died for 2 min which cut off oxygen to his brain and he now has speech and memory issues.
