Lisinopril and HBP: Lisinopril (l) is a good drug for hbp therapy. It is a drug that should be given at the maximum dose, 40 mg/day, to get the largest reduction of blood pressure and protein (p) in the urine, if it is present. As a diabetic, you need to have a 24 hour urine to see if you do have p. If you do you need to reduce it with l one of the major side effects is a dry cough, usually at night. Speak to your md.
