Brief Answer: Lisinopril. Good for you Detailed Answer: Dear friend Welcome to HCM. I am Dr Anshul Varshney. I will try to help you with your query The drug you are mentioning seems to be Lisinopril. If you could tell me name of the salt from your medicine label I would be able to help you better. However Considering it is lisinopril I can tell you that it is an anti hypertensive drug belonging to class of ACE Inhibitors. It has anti hypertensive effects plus also helps in preventing cardiac remodelling and heart failure , a common complication of diabetes and hypertension. I suggest you to get your blood pressure and diabetes under control. And to continue this drug with your other medications under supervision of your serum potassium levels as this drug can increase pottasium levels. I would like to know your blood sugar levels and blood pressure for a better advice regarding your diabetes and hypertension. As far as your query is concerned you may continue this drug under observation for a blood pressure control and to prevent heart failure. I recommend this drug for its goodness with pur heart in hypertensive and diabetic patients. If you have any further query you may please ask me. Stay healthy.
