Lisinopril for Congestive Heart Failure

If you have congestive heart failure, your healthcare provider may prescribe lisinopril. This prescription medication comes in tablet form and is typically taken once a day.
 
To treat congestive heart failure, lisinopril works by blocking a specific enzyme in the body (angiotensin-converting enzyme). Inhibiting this enzyme causes the blood vessels to relax, which can lower blood pressure and increase 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.
