In brief: HBP and lisinopril

Lisinopril (l) is a drug of the ace-inhibitor (a) class of drugs.
It is an excellent drug to control BP as well as reducing protein in the urine, as do all drugs in that class. There are other drugs in that class that are on the market. Ask your doctor to see if ramipril (r) is a good substitute for l in your case. As you can see from the image, r is quite effective in reducing cv complications.
