Is lisinopril a ccb?

Lisinopril

Lisinopril
ACE (angiotensin converting enzyme) inhibitor. I assume you mean calcium channel blocker by term ccb, but if not, apologies. You can search for 'mechanism of action' with almost any drug.

Dr. David Brouwer answered:

Benzapril and lisinopril both okay for kidneys?

Yes

Diabetes
They are both ACE inhibitors, commonly used to treat high blood pressure, heart disease, kidney disease, and used routinely to protect kidney function in diabetic patients. There is no reason to use them together, one or the other is fine. Baseline blood and urine tests should be obtained, especially looking for the potassium level since ACE inhibitors can cause an elevation of potassium.

About the same
