Brief Answer:
usually not...

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

lisinopril is an antihypertensive medication. It may cause hypotension or postural hypotension. In most individuals there won't be any clinical consequences. If you have a borderline blood pressure (that is normal but low blood pressure) or a serious medical history (particularly with cardiovascular problems) or start feeling faintness or severe weakness then you should visit a doctor for assessment.

So in conclusion, although in most cases no serious effects are expected, in certain individuals it may cause problems. Measure your blood pressure and act accordingly (as suggested)...

I hope it helps!
Kind Regards!
