Both have similar effects but there is more evidence for heart protection with aces than arbs but slightly more side effects with aces. ...Read more
Lisinopril choices: 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. ...Read more
