Depends: It depends on how uncontrolled your blood pressure is without taking Lisinopril. You can get headaches and blurred vision due to elevated blood pressure. However, most likely you will be fine. Just restart your Lisonopril asap, and remember to pick up refill before you run out in the future. Take Care!

Very quickly!: A great way to answer your question yourself, would be to purchase an inexpensive home BP unit (i like omron), and simply monitor your BP every hour or two. You should see results within hours.

Depends,: The original bottle will have a 'discard date'. If not avalable, it is safer to refill the rx, as the generic form can be bought for less than $4 for a month supply in some pharmacies.
