A good med, but not: Prinivil (lisinopril) is indeed and excellent BP med, especially for diabetic patients, but it is not for everyone. A good medicine is the one that works for you, has minimal or no side effects, and must be affordable. No matter how good/expensive it is, if you can't take it, it is not right for you. So, is it good one? Yes. It is also quite cheap these days. Take your med, follow doc..Good luck.
