ACEI: Miracle BP Pil: Lisinopril is an Ace Inhibitor, most patients love it. It is not for anxiety (unless hypertension brings on anxiety in an individual. It is not the best med for a patient w asthma/copd-smoking, ACEI can exacerbate these). If you dont tolerate Lisinopril there are meds called ARBS, and several of these are generic as well. I do not know much about your history, so I cannot comment further
