Thanks for your query.

Need not worry , one single tablet of 0mg Lisinopril is not harmful. Though it does reduce the BP it will not reduce to an extent where it could be symptomatic.

I would ask you to consume good amount of water and juices .Juices be a added with a pinch of salt which brings up the BP.

As I said there is no serious risk involved and you can relax.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
