Thanks for posting query.
Lisinopril is a ACE Inhibitors. The side effects are- hypotension, hyperkalemia (lowering body potassium level), persistent cough, skin rashes, angioedema (sudden swelling of lip, mouth), dysguesia or reversible loss or alteration of taste sensation, etc. But don't worry about these, most people tolerate the drug very well.
Wish you a speedy recovery
Best Wishes,
