Side effects of lisinopril can very from mild (cough, dizziness, headache, nausea, itching) to more severe (fainting, fever, muscle weakness, irregular heartbeats). I recommend getting a complete list of the potential side effects from your pharmacist.

Do you know if it can cause hair loss? One of my medications is doing that and I cna't seem to pinpoint which one. Also can it cause your balance to be off a little also? Thank you for answering right back. June Richardson
Hair loss is a rare side effect of lisinopril. Also, the side effect of dizziness/lightheadedness may be causing you to have the balance issues.
Thank you so much for your help. I'll just keep digging around until I find out what is causing the hair loss. Merry Christmas! June Richardson
