  1. I had an allergic reaction to Lisinopril after only being on it for a year and a half. It made my face swell up and my throat was swollen up to the point I couldn't breathe. They changed my medication. Why did they not take her off of Lisinopril?

  2. I think this woman has a lot more health problems going on that her allergy. Honestly, how do they know her face swollen? She is fat. It's such a shame when people don't take care of themselves.

  3. Lisionpril got my uncle too with an allergic reaction. Apparently it's well known that this drug can end up causing one. He'd taken it for years without issue and then one day, BAM! Tongue swelled up, throat started to close. Scared the absolute bejezus out of me, especially on the way to the hospital when the paramedic in the back poked her head through the window to the front cabin and told the driver to step on it – my uncle had bitten through his tongue!!

    Why this medication is STILL prescribed at all when it is SO well known to cause sudden allergic reactions is beyond me. It should have been removed and banned already!!

  4. Hmmm. As German paramedic I am pretty amazed of the extreme bodyweights of the shown patients… Even without any (supposed) allergic reaction, it would be nearly impossible to breath with so much overweight…

  5. What the heck!!! She is not a good paramedic no sympathy or anything when you have asthma plus an allergic reaction you are not going to be able to breathe and YOU ARE going to cough so she can't stop!!!!

    I just took it personally as person with asthma myself

  6. Great job but i have to disagree with Lindsay. Lisinopril has 12 hour half life and that means she still had 7-15% of the initial dosage of her medication (depending on bodyweight) and most likely even more since she was taking it for a long time. half time doesnt mean that if its 12 that it will be fully out of body in 24 hours, it would take about 6-7 days to be fully out of the body. In 24 hours there would be still 25% (half of a half). Not trying to be smart, i have such a respect for them but this seems very odd for a paramedic knowledge…

  7. Y'all gotta understand that yeah, maybe she was playing it up a little bit but something was definitely wrong with her. Not only was her face severely swollen, but she has asthma and I suspect she was very anxious as well, and anxiety can cause a lot of physical symptoms/exacerbate existing symptoms from something else. I'm sure she truly did feel like her throat was closing up, I don't think she was "acting" but rather absolutely terrified 🤷‍♀️

  8. Yep. Story time-
    I found out I was allergic to lisinopril too. After taking it for a year, one day I woke up and my whole bottom lip was massively swollen and half numb. Went to the ER and doctor told me yeah people could be fine one day with it and years later it cause a reaction. The Doctor kept me for hours saying if the visible reaction was that bad, he was worried about if there could be an unseen reaction inside. He told me never take it again. My mom and friends took pictures of my lip trying not to show how freaked out they were…it didn't work.

  9. Dr okouromi is the only Doctor who will never prescribe tabs/injections for asthma, this is medical miracle! I was able to get rid of asthma permanently with natural herbal supplement from Dr okouromi
