Lisinopril Blood Pressure Medicine

Lisinopril is a prescription medication used to treat several conditions involving the heart and blood vessels, including high blood pressure. This medication comes in tablet form and is typically taken once a day.
 
As a blood pressure medicine, lisinopril works by blocking a specific enzyme, which is normally part of a reaction in the body that causes the blood vessels to narrow (constrict). By blocking this enzyme, it causes blood vessels to relax, which can lower blood pressure. By helping blood vessels relax, it also increases the efficiency of the heart. This means that the heart does not have to work as hard and more blood can be pumped out to the rest of the body.
 
During clinical studies in people taking lisinopril, both systolic and diastolic blood pressures were significantly lowered. The higher the dose, the greater the drop in blood pressure tended to be. By lowering blood pressure, lisinopril can decrease the risks that often accompany long-term high blood pressure.
