Were you looking for information on Lisinopril? Lisenopril is a common misspelling of lisinopril.
Lisinopril (available as Zestril®, Prinivil®, and generic lisinopril) is a prescription drug used to treat several conditions related to the heart and blood vessels. Specific uses for the drug include controlling high blood pressure, treating congestive heart failure, and improving survival following a heart attack. Lisinopril helps to block the angiotensin-converting enzyme, which is normally part of a reaction in the body that causes the blood vessels to narrow. By blocking this enzyme, lisinopril causes blood vessels to relax, which lowers blood pressure and improves the efficiency of the heart. The medication comes in a tablet form that is typically taken once a day. Possible side effects of lisinopril include dizziness, diarrhea, a cough, and extremely low blood pressure.
