Lisinopril: Lisinopril is an effective high BP medicine. It's greatest effective is using the 40 mg dose/day. It also reduces protein in the urine and does so the most when the 40 mg dose is used. It's side effectives are mostly a cough, which is non-productive at night. It may also cause angioneurotic edema. The frequency of the side effects are not related to the strength of the dose. Speak to your doctor.
Lisinopril seems to be prescribed for once daily. Could the recommended dose be divided and taken at separate times, due to unwanted side effects?
Yes: Although Lisinopril is once a day medication but I can be taken in divided doses.
Lisinopril: What sexual side effects are you talking about? Lisinopril is a medication taking daily. After 48 hours being off the drug, it has been metabolized by your body and it should be out of your system. Any side effects caused by the drug should be gone by that time. Please call the physician who prescribed the drug for you for more information.See 1 more doctor answer

Side effects: What side effects (s) are your talking about that Lisinopril (l) is causing? If it a cough (c). You should discuss your s with your physician (p). If it's a c, stop the l for two days. If the cough goes away, tell you p to put you on a different BP medication. If the c remains, it is not due to l and could be due to esophageal reflux, among others. Discuss your problem with you p for more advice.See 1 more doctor answer
Am taking 5mg lisinopril once a day but am having side effects. Are there other medicines I can take? Why is the dose so weak, only 5mg?
I forgot to pick up Lisinopril today & as a result have missed two consecutive doses. I will have it in the morning. Any side effects to worry about?
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!
ARB's vs ACEI: Benicar (olmesartan) an arb works similarly in many ways to lisiniopril (acei). They both block at different points in the renin-angiotensin system. A by-product of the acei however is a buildup in a chemical called bradykinin, which can produce throt irritation and a dry cough in 5-10% patients. A cough like this is much less likely with an arb agent like benicar (olmesartan).See 1 more doctor answer
User dependent: Both Benicar (olmesartan) and Lisinopril are used to treat high blood pressure. Both block the effects of angiotension--a hormone that causes constriction of blood vessels and increases blood pressure. Lisinopril has been available for several years and is available as a generic (cheaper) but can cause an annoying cough. Benicar (olmesartan) is a newer drug and is more expensive. Both can cause high potassium levels.
Drug interactions: There is no incidence of increased side affects (sa) taking Lisinopril (l) and metoprolol (m) together, l can cause a cough, which is non-productive, and can cause, in rare cases, swelling of the lips. M can cause a slow pulse rate and can cause some erectile dysfunction. Using both of these agents to treat hypertension does not increase the frequency of the sa's of either drug.
