    What causes swelling in the upper lip while on Lisinopril?

Posted on Mon, 17 Jul 2017 in Medicines and Side Effects
Question: I think I had an allergic reaction yester, I am on Lisinopril,Propanolol, generic Lexapro, for several years with problems. Also take OTC Alpha Lipoic Acid ,Gyn recommended Ophena. Vit D3 1000iu. Calcium, daily vitamins. It may be something I ate yesterday. I woke up with a swollen upper lip (I have reacted like this before).
Decided to eat lightly today (egg salad, deli maple turkey) so far.
Will Zertek help or anything else.?
CORRECTION TO ORIGINAL QUESTION. I Have had no problems with prescribed meds I'm taking and have been on them for several years. In the past I have had similar reaction to some acidic foods.

Brief Answer:
Allergic reaction

Detailed Answer:
Dear Ms, I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns. it seems that you have developed an allergic reaction which yes can be relieved with an antihistaminic as Zyrtec or citrizine once daily before going to bed . if the allergic reaction got worse as dissiminated body rash , sense of difficult swallowing or difficulty breathing then you should go to the hospital for a dexamethasone and an avil injection . I hope I answered your question. if you don't have any other clarifications then please close the discussion.
