    Thanks Ed shank.I thought colour was not a facter as you said side effects.
    quack

    From Drugs.com: Angioedema: Angioedema has been reported in patients receiving Lisinopril with an incidence higher in Black than in non-Black patients. Angioedema associated with laryngeal edema may be fatal. If angioedema of the face, extremities, lips, tongue, glottis and/or larynx occurs, treatment with Lisinopril should be discontinued and appropriate therapy instituted immediately.

    Get a life people. I'm sorry I even came to this stupid site seeking bad advice. Some people truly don't know what to say or comment unless it's up against the wall crap. if you do take this med and this had or is happening to more black people they may want to seek help. I'm sorry for even caring.

    Thank you for your medical advise Quack. What made you think your going to get medical advise on this site? Why would you take medical advise from anyone you don't know? If your disappointed in this site, "Haul ass" you won't be missed. As soon as I turn black and come down with any of the ailments you've been kind enough to share with me, I will apologize and beg for forgiveness. Till then GFY.

    Same as "white we are all the same types of blood.

    quack

    blood type has nothing to do with blood pressure. I'm asking because I almost died taking lisinopril, then learned it's not a better choice for me a person of color. I had symptoms I never would have guessed was comimg from my blood pressure med. vision loss, hair loss, weight gain, kidney stones, etc.. I was told this was a good site and someone with a lil knowledge might help, but I guess NOT!!! GOD BLESS YOU ALL AND BE CAREFUL OF YOUR MEDICATIONS, THEY CAN KILL YOU!

    What is good for white is good for black.  You ask this question because you are a quack as your name indicates?

    Why are you asking if you know the answer, quack?

    YOU came to US, now it's our fault ??? but, yet you've researched this but, yet, I guess your still questioning everyones answer an, I bet your Doctor.  ARE you looking for a pity party or a hand-out, because you keep repeating about being BLACK as others told you SKIN COLOR DOESN"T PREDICT/INDICATE SPECIAL DRUGS, so get a life and LISTEN TO YOUR DOCTOR AND QUIT CRYING!!!!!!!!

    quack

    My Father is White and My Mother is Black, and you can ask your doctor, it does matter and just like certain illness are more prone to other races. I don't know where all this is coming from, I was born here..again I hate I even posted to this dump site. you all are the ones getting bent out of shape, I had to do my own reseach, I want to know what I take into my body and my side affects. I'm truly tired of explaining this, one says I'm angry, one says ignorant, no wonder we are n the mess we have today, none of us can see the others point clearly. i'm done

    Why don't you cut the attitude,people have responded to you and you have became abusive.What's your problem ?

    quack

    If you read the remarks then you'd know. they are making it about color and all I was trying to do was get advice or have shared experiences.. Thank U.

    Those tiny white pills.

    Get a life quack. This is just an opinion site where questions are answered by common ordinary people. Anyone seeking qualified medical advise here is rather ignorant. I'm sorry you came here also.

    quack

    Ignorant! ok, I see you didn't under stand the question either. It's called ask a question.

    What is the answer your looking for ? maybe you could educate us.

    Quack, here's the problem, "You supposedly almost died from this med. that numerous people take including me, now if, you had a reaction it's not from being BLACK or BLACK/WHITE mixed or WHITE, it's just something that happens with all sorts of things MEDS., FOOD, ETC. NOT RACE.  Any who, if you had this reaction then, your Doc. already knows an has more than likely prescribed something else but, you're still looking for something or someone to jump up and say, NO, NO DON'T TAKE THIS USE THIS, WE'RE NOT DOCTORS, YES SOME OF US HAS HAD MEDICAL TRAINING BUT, WE CAN'T DIAGNOSE OR PRESCRIBE MEDS> IF, you question your DOCTORS TREATMENT then seek a SECOND OPINION.

    Do your reseach on matters here when answering serious people. I can't believe how )**&^*(&* some can be.. This is not good site to seek medical advice or knowledge from.
