Lisinopril Alternatives

Although many people do not experience any problems while taking lisinopril, this medication is not suitable for everyone. Fortunately, there are several alternatives to lisinopril available. Some of these alternatives include blood pressure medications. There are several categories of medication used to treat high blood pressure. Often, two or more drugs work better than one. The main types of medication for high blood pressure include:
 
  • Beta blockers
  • Diuretics
  • Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACE inhibitors)
  • Angiotensin II receptor blockers (ARBs)
  • Calcium channel blockers (CCBs)
  • Alpha blockers
  • Alpha-beta blockers
  • Nervous system inhibitors
  • Vasodilators.
     
If lisinopril is not working for you or if it is causing bothersome side effects, ask your healthcare provider about trying an alternative.
