Lisinopril

Lisinopril is a medicine that can treat a variety of conditions. These include:

  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Diabetic kidney disease
  • Heart failure

Lisinopril is also given to patients just after they’ve suffered a heart attack for several weeks.

Lisinopril is an ACE inhibitor, which works by blocking your body from producing a chemical called angiotensin II, which narrows blood vessels and causes issues such as hypertension and heart failure. The medicine works by relaxing and widening the blood vessels, ultimately lowering your blood pressure and allowing the heart to pump blood around the body more freely.

When you first start taking the drug, you might feel lightheaded or dizzy, so it’s a good idea to take the first dose before you go to bed. After this, as long as they’re taken at the same time each day, you can choose when best suits you and your daily routine.

It might take a while to notice any benefits of Lisinopril, but don’t give up on the medication if you aren’t experiencing any adverse effects.

What is Lisinopril?

Lisinopril is a medicine that’s used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension), heart failure, and is also prescribed to patients after they’ve suffered a heart attack. In addition to these conditions, Lisinopril can also treat diabetic kidney disease and help to slow its deterioration.

How does Lisinopril work?

Lisinopril belongs to the ACE inhibitor family of medications, and works by relaxing and dilating the blood vessels. This ultimately lowers blood pressure, and helps your heart to pump blood around the body better.

For patients with diabetic kidney disease, the medicine works to delay the deterioration of the condition by reducing the amount of protein lost within the kidneys. This goes a long way into helping to protect the kidneys from any further damage.

In heart failure, Lisinopril can improve your symptoms and reduce the risk of having a stroke later in life, and for those who are taking the medication shortly after suffering a heart attack, it can even prevent further attacks.

How long do I have to take Lisinopril for?

How long you take the medication for depends on the condition its treating and how well you react to it.

For patients who are taking Lisinopril for high blood pressure, diabetic kidney disease, and heart failure, you’re most likely going to be taking it for the rest of your life. Lisinopril is a highly effective long-term treatment and it works best this way for these conditions rather than only taking it for several weeks.

However, for those who’ve just had a heart attack, the drug is generally only prescribed for the first 6 weeks. A doctor will then decide whether it’s appropriate for you to continue taking the medication.

If you stop taking Lisinopril, or if you keep forgetting your dose, you might find that your blood pressure starts creeping up again, and you’re at increased risk of stroke and heart attack. It helps that Lisinopril needs to be taken at the same time each day, hopefully making it part of your daily routine, but if you do keep forgetting, setting an alarm might help.

It’s important that you keep taking Lisinopril even if you start feeling better. This only means that the medication is working, and not that your condition is improving and you no longer need the medicine. Never stop taking medication unless you’ve first discussed it with a doctor.

What are the side effects of Lisinopril?

Lisinopril will likely make you feel dizzy or lightheaded after your first dose. For this reason, many doctors recommend starting you on a low dose of the drug and gradually building it up to reduce this possibility. However, whether you’re gradually increasing your dose or not, it might be wise to take your first dose at bedtime, just in case dizziness hits, so you can sleep right through it. Dizziness doesn’t usually last long, though, but here’s a list of some of the symptoms you might notice when starting Lisinopril:

  • A dry, irritating cough that won’t go away
  • Dizziness
  • Headaches
  • Diarrhoea
  • Vomiting
  • Itching
  • Rash
  • Blurred vision

Whilst Lisinopril shouldn’t affect your cognitive ability or concentration, side effects such as dizziness and blurred vision will hinder your ability to drive. It’s a good idea to wait and see how you feel when taking the medicine before attempting to drive or operate machinery. Lisinopril can also cause more serious side effects. It’s important to be aware of what they might be even though it’s rare to experience them:

  • Swelling of the face, tongue, throat, lips, eyes, hands, feet or lower legs
  • Hoarseness
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Trouble swallowing (dysphagia)
  • Infection
  • Jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes)
  • Lightheadedness
  • Fainting
  • Chest pain

If you do experience any of these side effects, please seek emergency help as you may be having an allergic reaction to the drug.

How long does Lisinopril take to work?

Once you’ve taken the medication, it starts to work within hours, but you might not physically feel any benefits for several weeks if you’re taking it to control hypertension. If you’re using Lisinopril for heart failure, you may not even feel any improvement for a few months, but don’t give up on the drug unless you’re experiencing any adverse effects.

If you haven’t noticed any symptoms from your condition, you might not even notice a difference yourself, but when you’re monitored by a doctor, test results should show some improvement.

Can I take Lisinopril?

Most people are able to take Lisinopril, but if you fall into any of the following categories, you should seek advice from your doctor as Lisinopril might not be the best course of treatment for you. Seek advice if you are:

  • Diabetic
  • About to have surgery
  • Following a low-salt diet
  • Diagnosed with a low white blood cell count
  • Allergic to any of the ingredients of the medicine
  • Currently having dialysis
  • Trying to conceive
  • Pregnant
  • Breastfeeding
  • Suffering with heart, liver or kidney problems
  • Diagnosed with low blood pressure

It might be that Lisinopril is safe for you to take if you’re closely monitored, but in any of the above situations, we wouldn’t recommend buying the medicine online as you’ll need close attention to make sure there are no adverse effects.

There are also certain medications that interact with Lisinopril, so if you take any of the following, it’s also a good idea to seek advice from your GP before starting treatment.

  • Anti-inflammatory medicines (ibuprofen, naproxen etc)
  • Medicines that treat low blood pressure
  • Medicines to treat asthma
  • Any other drugs that treat hypertension
  • Any other drugs than can lower your blood pressure (anaesthetics for example)
  • Diuretics
  • Medications that can increase the amount of potassium in your bloodstream
  • Steroids (such as prednisolone)
  • Diabetes medications
  • Lithium
  • Allopurinol

Whilst the list may be vague, if you know you’re taking medicines that sound like anything in the above list, please seek medical advice from your own GP before you buy Lisinopril.
