Brief Answer: Hives could be because of Lisinopril Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query Lisinopril is the most likely cause for your hives, I have seen patients who are on this drug for several years and they land up in hives. Please approach your physician with my suggestion Zolpidem and Tramadol are regularly prescribed together, however the interaction between them is present. It could make your excessively drowsy. Most patients do well , please go back to your physician, he might want to reduce the dose of one of the drug. Tab Levocetrizine 10 mg is a wonderful drug for your hives, you can take one at night. Continue taking Torsamide for the leg swelling, it will come down in 1 to 2 weeks I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me Regards
