In brief: Probably yes
There is no reason why Lisinopril cannot be used to treat high blood pressure in patients diagnosed with lupus nephritis.
In fact, it may be the drug of choice in lupus patients who are also spilling protein in their urine. It may be need to be used with some caution in those patients with more advanced cases of lupus-related kidney disease as it may contribute to high levels of potassium.
