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,

I am taking 20mg of lisinopril daily. I have also reduced my tobacco smoking from 2 packs a day to 1/2 pack but am experiencing some dizziness/light headedness. Can the continued smoking be the cause or is this just a continuing side effect of the lisinopril?

My daughter was in the hospital this week with blood pressure 200/148. she was there for two days and they sent her home with 148/98. She was taking 10 mg lisinopril and said to take two. She has monitored her blood pressure and the lower number keeps going up. It is now 148/119. She has no chest pains, shortness of breath, etc. They said the high pressure was due to a combination of meds particularly with phenylephrine. She also takes Keppra and Flonaise.
Does she need to go to emergency or can she wait to see if her blood pressure stablizes. thank you.
