    After 10 days on Lisinopril, my pee turned deep orange. A blood test showed my kidney was in distress so I stopped taking it. I read online that all blood pressure meds would eventually damage your kidneys. I also saw a YouTube video by Sanjay Gupta who referenced a study from the December 2018 Journal of American Medical Assoc(JAMA) authored by James Shepard that showed if your BP was under 159/99 (mild hypertension) there was no difference in outcomes (ie strokes, heart problems, etc) between those who took meds and those who didn't BUT you were more likely to experience bad side effects from taking the meds(like kidney problems, loss of balance, etc). So the meds provided no benefit but actually caused harm. I decided not to take any meds. I changed my diet instead. Mostly vegetables, especially beans. Hope you find what works for you
