Doctor is switching me to something else for BP.   Zestril gave me bad dry coughs.  Worse thing I read about this new one is weight gain.  anyone on it?

Yes, I've been taking it for years.  I'm taking the 100-25 dose twice a day, so my dose is twice what your dose is.  The only down side that I see from taking it is the hydrochlorothiazide, which is a diuretic, so I have to pee every 60 minutes when I'm awake, and about every 2 hours when I'm asleep, so I can never get a good night's sleep.  Taking half the dose that I take, you might not have to pee as often as I do.

Turns out the Pharmacy does not have it in stock, or maybe my beginning dose is not that popular.  My Lisinopril was only 20mg.
