lisinopril is used to treat high blood pressure. Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. It is also used to treat heart failure and to improve survival after a heart attack.
Lisinopril belongs to a class of drugs known as ACE inhibitors. It works by relaxing blood vessels so blood can flow more easily.
Lisinopril is a tablet that you take orally. It's available in various strengths, ranging from 2.5 milligrams (mg) to 40 mg.
You'll typically take lisinopril once a day, around the same time each day.
Your doctor will probably prescribe a low dose of the drug at first and gradually increase it over time.
For people with high blood pressure, the typical dose of lisinopril ranges from 20 to 40 mg a day.
When treating heart failure, the effective dose of the drug ranges from 5 to 40 mg a day.
For people who've had a heart attack, the first dose of lisinopril is 5 mg. After 24 hours, you'll take another 5 mg. After 48 hours, you'll take 10 mg a day for six weeks.
For children, the usual starting dose of lisinopril is up to 5 mg daily.
Some drugs may affect the way lisinopril works, and lisinopril could also affect other medications.
It's very important to let your doctor know about everything you are taking, including any over-the-counter (OTC) medications, herbs, or supplements as well as illegal drugs.
