Lisinopril is an oral treatment for hypertension (high blood pressure). It belongs to a group of medicines called angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, or ACE inhibitors. These medicines work to widen the blood vessels, which helps to relieve the workload of the heart. As well as hypertension, Lisinopril can also be prescribed for heart failure, or to protect blood vessels following a recent heart attack. Lisinopril tablets are available in strengths of 5mg, 10mg, and 20mg. Lisinopril will begin to lower your blood pressure within one hour, and will take full effect within six hours.

The only way to discover whether you have hypertension is to go and have your blood pressure checked. For many, the condition can go undiagnosed due to lack of noticeable symptoms. In The UK, it is estimated that more than one in every four adults have hypertension. If the condition isn't properly treated/managed, it will greatly increase the risk of heart disease/failure, heart attack, stroke, and kidney failure. Hypertension medication, such as Lisinopril, does not cure high blood pressure. However, it will effectively help keep it under control.

Hypertension treatments, such as Lisinopril, will effective help manage hypertension. However, it should not be looked upon as the only method for managing the condition. Making the right lifestyle choices is vital in helping to maintain a healthy blood pressure. There are a number of lifestyle choices that will reduce the strain on the heart. These include;

  • Reduce the fat/salt in your diet
  • Exercise regularly
  • Stop smoking
  • Cut down on alcohol
  • Try to get at least six hours sleep every night

The angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) controls the level of fluid in the bloodstream. It also causes blood vessels to contract. Both of these actions result in an increase in blood pressure. ACE inhibitors, such as Lisinopril, inhibit the activity of these enzymes. This causes the blood vessels to dilate (widen) and decreases the total volume of fluid in the bloodstream. This will cause a reduction in blood pressure.

Some hypertension sufferers may be prescribed Lisinopril in combination with other similar medicines. It is important that you continue taking Lisinopril until your doctor tells you otherwise, even if you feel healthy.

Your recommended strength and dose of Lisinopril will vary depending on the nature of your condition, your medical history and whether you are taking it alone or alongside another blood pressure medicine. Always follow your prescription exactly.

Generally, the initial dose will be 10mg per day. Your doctor may adjust this dose depending on your body's response to the medicine.

Swallow the tablet whole with a sip of water. Ensure that you drink sufficient water throughout the day when taking this medicine, as it may make you dehydrated. When you first start taking Lisinopril, it may make you dizzy. For this reason, take it before you go to bed for the first few days. Lisinopril can be taken with or without food.

If, for any reason, you forget to take a tablet, take it as soon as possible. However, if it is nearly time for your next tablet, skip the dose that you missed. Never double your dose to compensate for a dose that you have missed.

Alcohol does not directly interact with this medicine; however, you should avoid drinking heavily because the combination may lower your blood pressure excessively.

Not everyone will experience side effects when they take Lisinopril, however, if you do they can include:

Lightheadedness, cough, headache, nausea, skin irritation, diarrhoea, kidney problems

If you are concerned about these effects, or if the product affects you in any other way, stop using it and talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
