About Lisinopril

How to take Lisinopril

Lisinopril is usually taken once daily, at the same time every day. You can take Lisinopril with or without food and you should swallow your tablet with a drink of water. If you forget to take Lisinopril, please do not swallow two tablets at once to make up for the missed dose. Just skip the tablet you forgot to take and continue with the next dose as usual. Depending on which dosage you need to take, you may have to break your tablets in half, along the crease in the middle. Your doctor will let you know if this applies to you.

If you have accidentally exceeded the recommended dose or believe that someone else or a child have swallowed your Lisinopril tablets, please contact your local GP or A&E immediately. Lisinopril is prescription-only medication and should only been taken if a doctor has assessed suitability. It is generally not to be taken by children under the age of 6.

Ingredients

Lisinopril tablets usually contain between 2.5 and 20mg of lisinopril. In rare cases, patients may require a higher dosage. Additional ingredients may include magnesium stearate, iron oxide, pregelatinised maize starch, calcium hydrogen phosphate dihydrate, croscarmellose sodium and mannitol.

Dosage

Lisinopril tablets can contain 5mg, 10mg, oder 20mg of the active ingredient. Which dosage you require depends on the severity of your hypertension and whether your treatment plan includes other types of medication. Your GP will set the dosage for you and may adjust it later on, should it not show the desired effect. Likewise, if you are suffering from side effects, your dosage may need to be reduced. The usual starting dose is 10mg per day.

Common side effects

One of the most common side effects of Lisinopril tablets is a cough (about one in ten patients). Other side effects of ACE inhibitors like Lisinopril are rather uncommon and are sometimes related to low blood pressure (hypotension), especially at the beginning of the treatment.

Here’s a list of side effects that 1-10% of patients encounter:

  • Dizziness when standing or sitting up (try sitting back down, wait a few moments and get up slowly)
  • Diarrhoea and possible stomach ache (improves past the first few days of treatment)
  • Headache (some painkillers don’t interact with Lisinopril – ask your doctor or pharmacist)
  • Drowsiness

If your dry cough due to Lisinopril seems to be too severe, you can contact your doctor to see if an alternative treatment is a possibility. Many times, the cough stops after a while during the treatment. There are several different medications that can treat high blood pressure.
