A 39-year-old member asked:

Is it safe to take lisinopril during pregnancy?

2 doctor answers6 doctors weighed in
Dr. Erin Alward
Obstetrics and Gynecology 17 years experience
No: Ideally, Lisinopril (and other ace-inhibitors, usually end in -pril) should stopped before trying to get pregnant. But if you find out you are pregnant and are taking it, stop taking it and call your doctor. Lisinopril can cause some congenital malformations in early pregnancy and kidney problems in later pregnancy. Babies exposed to Lisinopril will need extra monitoring mainly with ultrasounds.

ACE: There is not a direct correlation with doses between different ace inhibitors. If switching from one to another, i often start at the lowest or intermediate dose of the new medication to see how someone will respond.

What's the difference between lisinopril and cozaar (losartan)?

Dr. Mark Gabelman
Cardiology 41 years experience
ACE VS ARB: Lisinopril is an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor which blocks the conversion of angiotensin 1 to 2, Cozaar (losartan) is an angiotensin receptor blocker which directly blocks the effect of angiotensin. They both are available generically, may protect kidney function especially in diabetics, and lower blood pressure as well as help patients with decreased heart pumping function.
