Lisinopril is commonly prescribed to treat conditions affecting the heart and blood vessels, such as high blood pressure. It can also help improve survival following a heart attack. The drug blocks the angiotensin-converting enzyme, which is normally part of a reaction in the body that causes blood vessels to narrow. Lisinopril comes in tablet form and is typically taken once a day. Possible side effects include dizziness, cough, and diarrhea.
