hi Dfazny, welcome to H.C.M.Forum. lisinopril is a safe anti hypertensive drug . the dose is indipendent upon the person to person. your doctor judged the dose depending upon your clinical findings, if it happen to cause hypotension him self will reduce the dose . but one important thing is it is not pregnancy category drug. thank you.
