If you are an adult with high blood pressure (hypertension), your healthcare provider may recommend a drug called Prinzide® (lisinopril-hydrochlorothiazide).

To minimize potential risks with Prinzide, make sure your healthcare provider has a current list of any other drugs you are taking, including nonprescription products, as well as up-to-date information on your medical history. Also, let your healthcare provider know if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
