In brief: Nothing probably
Lisinopril is usually given just once a day.
So there is not really an advantage to taking it twice a day as it is long acting. The starting dose depends on a number of factors such as how high the blood pressure is and the kidney function. Not sure what the significance is of the comment about mothers day.
