I take lisinopril, an ace inhibitor. Are there any good alternatives?

Lisinopril choices

Ace_inhibitor
Lisinopril is a member of the ACE-Inhibitor (A) class of drugs. It not only reduces blood pressure, it also reduces proteinuria. The most common adverse effect of drugs of A class is a dry cough. Another class of drugs, call angiotensin receptor blockers (ARB) can do the same two things and have a much lower reported incidence of cough. Ask your physician for more advice.

Was taking 20mg lisinopril when my bp was 145/95. Bp now 135/85 naturally. I have hypothyroid and hypoglycemia. Dad has diabetes. Do I need it still?

Probably

Kidney_disease
It seems that your BP is good because of the use of lisinopril. However, if you mean by "naturally" that you BP is good off lisinopril, then it is ok to stay off it and regularly check your BP to make sure it is still okay. Need to continue your BP control for long to avoid developing kidney disease.

The cough while using lisinopril has been going on for 2 mos. I had a mini stroke 2 mos ago and had slightly elevated BP. What is a good alternative?

HBP AND STROKE

Lisinopril
Are you sure the cough is from lisinopril (L)? Stop it for two days and if you still have the cough, it is not due to L. If you want another drug for your HBP and stroke prevention (CVA), ask your MD to put you on a angiotensin receptor blockier (ARB). Drugs like valosartan. An ARB in the LIFE trail reduced the incidence of stroke by 20% compared to a beta blocker. See your MD about an ARB for you

I have high blood pressure, take Lisinopril 20mg daily. I've cut out red meat, what about pork, is it a good alternative?

Also red meat

Pork also belongs to a family of red meat. The best alternatives are fish (preferably salmon or sardines), chicken and/or turkey.

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.
