    Lisinopril is in a class of medications called angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. It works by decreasing certain chemicals that tighten the blood vessels, so blood flows more smoothly and the heart can pump blood more efficiently. It is used alone or in combination with other medications to treat high blood pressure and heart failure. It is also used to improve survival after a heart attack.

    Lisinopril comes as a tablet to take by mouth and is usually taken once a day.

    Your doctor will most likely start you on a low dose of lisinopril and gradually increase your dose.
