How it Works
Lisinopril is known as a angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor, or ACE inhibitor. Lisinopril works by inhibiting ACE, which means it blocks or inhibits a chemical called angiotensin-converting enzyme, which in turn blocks the production of angiotensin II, angiotensin functions in tightening the blood vessels. Lisinopril thus works to widen the blood vessels and helps to reduce the amount of water put back into your blood by the kidneys.

This is an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor drug. The generic name of this drug is lisinopril. Other trade names are Cipril and Listril. The drug is manufactured by AstraZeneca, Carsyon and MHRA UK. This medication is a long-acting ACE. It has been used for the treatment of hypertension and heart-related diseases or conditions. Lisinopril is the lysine derivative of enalapril.
LISINOPRIL is the main active ingredient for the therapeutic effect of Zestril (lisinopril). Each tablet of lisinopril contains 5.45 mg lisinopril dehydrate. Zestril comes in strengths from 2.5 mg to 40 mg in the form of tablet. It contains inactive ingredients like mannitol, magnesium esterate, calcium phosphate, starch, and red and yellow ferric oxide.
Lisinopril is used as therapy for various disease conditions such as heart failure, renal complication as a result of diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and other diseases or health conditions involving the heart. For treating hypertension, this drug can be used coupled with other hypertensive drugs to achieve its synergistic effect. This drug is used for the treatment of heart failure, especially in the case when the patient is not adequately responding to digitalis and diuretics. It is also used in worst cases such as patient who has myocardial infarction.
Dosage and administration
For patients suffering from hypertension but are not on any diuretic treatments, a dosage of 10 mg can be given once a day as per the doctor's advice. It is also important to monitor patients blood pressure as dosage adjustment greatly depends on the response of the blood pressure to the initial dose of therapy. If hypertension does not respond well to this treatment alone, then it can be used synergistically with diuretics. This medication is taken orally on a full or empty stomach. While you are on this therapy, it is important that you drink plenty of water or fluids to cope for excessive loss of water via sweating and urinating caused by this therapy.
Zestril is discouraged to use if the patient has hypersensitivity reaction to any component of lisinopril. If you are suffering from conditions such as swelling of any parts of the face and head, dysphagia or difficulty in swallowing, dyspnea or difficulty of breathing you are also advised to stay away from this drug. Pregnant women are also discouraged to use this drug. It is necessary to inform your health care provider if you have medical conditions or allergies before starting Zestril therapy.

Good product

Product is good for controlling hypertension (high blood pressure).  It does take daily use to have an effect as it has to build up over time (few weeks).  A possible side effect of lisinopril is developing a cough.  If coughing occurs, an alternative to consider is Irbesartan (common Irbesartan dose: 300mg daily).  Obviously you need to monitor your blood pressure for potential over medication.  If additional blood pressure control is required, consider adding Amlodiphine Besylate (aka Norvasc) 5mg daily.

Works great, same as I buy here.

I am going on a trip and would run out of my prescription during the trip. My insurance company would not let me buy ahead on my prescrption, so I simply went to this website and bought here. I have used this company for many years now, and they have never failed me. One of my prescriptions is an OTC now, and I can save money by ordering it in 3 month quantity from Buy Pharma.
