What are Lisinopril tablets?

Lisinopril tablets are a medication used to treat high blood pressure, and can help prevent future strokes and heart attacks for those who might be at risk. Lisinopril tablets belong to a group of medicines called ACE inhibitors. These cause the blood vessels to relax, making it easier for the blood to pass through them. 

High blood pressure rarely has noticeable symptoms, and if left untreated greatly increases the risk of stroke and heart attack. High blood pressure occurs for a variety of reasons including genetic predispositions, weight and old age. Medication such as Lisinopril tablets may be prescribed to help reduce high blood pressure and therefore reduce the risk of heart attack or stroke.

Lisinopril tablets should usually be taken once a day, you may find that your first dose causes some dizziness but this generally passes. This is why taking them at night before bed can be useful. The general starting dosage is 10mg but will vary from person to person, always follow the advice given by your doctor or prescriber. Your doctor may lower or raise the dosage depending on how effective it is. Lisinopril can only be purchased with a prescription.

Lisinopril tablets will be most effective in combination with a healthy diet and exercise as this will help reduce your blood pressure. If Lisinopril is not effective there are other medications for high blood pressure. Speak to your doctor or pharmacist to find the best solution for you. You can order Lisinopril tablets online from e-Surgery with a quick health questionnaire. Use our free Ask a Pharmacist service to find the right medication for you.
