I was prescribed Lisionopril long with Toporol and Norvasc for high blood pressure and after ingesting the medications for two to three days my face was disfigured I had these huge, hanging lips and a side of my face was like the elephant man's face I was a monster until I went to the Urgent Care and the P.A. there immediately gave me shot of Benedryl and Predisone and told me what had caused this extreme swelling and I was lucky it did go into my throat which causes choking and the inability to breathe. This occured in Chowchilla, Ca where the medical care is extremely poor. I would like to participate in class action suit against the manufactures of Lisinopril. I was also told that I had suffured from Agina Adema due to the Lisinopril which occurs in African-Americans - so is this a way of the process of elimination of African Americans with high blood pressure who is eager to get their blood pressure back to normal. I just want to have a normal life again. By the way, I did go to the prescribing physician and I was giving a shot of Kenalog he, Jeff only said "I had a fat lip and was allergic to the antibiotic I had been taking from the dentist for a bad tooth and a prescription for Claritin and Benedryl which I did not get due to the pharmacy incorrectly running my insurance which produced an amount of twelve dollars for the Benedrly which I could not afford; after the shots of Benedryl for two days and the one shot of Predisone I was regular again in the facial features but I was afraid of the blood pressure medications that were prescribed so I threw them away; the P.A. from Urgent Care gave a high blod pressure and water pill and I have been feeling better. I went to Urgent Care the next day after the swelling did not go down - my daughter said "I looked as though my whole face was about to pop!"
