More information

  • Usage

    Lisinopril is an oral medication that belongs to a class of medications known as an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. ACE inhibitors like lisinopril (Zestril) are thought to lower blood pressure by suppressing the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system. In adults, lisinopril administration reduces standing and supine blood pressure with minimal increase in the heart rate. The effect on blood pressure is additive when lisinopril is utilized at the same time as a thiazide-type diuretic such as in a lisinopril – hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) combination.

  • Lisinopril – Side Effects

    Lisinopril can cause side effects. Side effects of lisinopril include nausea, headache, dizziness, and a rash. More serious side effects include liver problems, high potassium levels, low blood pressure, and angioedema. Like all medications, generic lisinopril, Zestril and Prinivil can cause allergic reactions in susceptible people. All concerns about side effects are best directed to the pharmacist and one’s prescribing medical provider.

  • Cost Information

    Generic lisinopril and Zestril are prescription medications. As a result, they cannot just be purchased over-the-counter (OTC). The cost of generic lisinopril is under $1 per pill. The cost of Zestril and Prinivil pills are also under $1 per pill. Lisinopril coupons as well as Prinivil and Zestril coupons might be available from a variety of sources. Farmington Drugs & Medical Supplies takes pride in offering the most cost efficient services and prescriptions to our patients.

  • Dosage

    The lisinopril used to formulate tablets like Zestril is a white to off-white crystalline powder that is soluble in water. Lisinopril pills are typically round, biconvex uncoated tablets that can be white, pink, red or yellow, depending on the lisinopril dosage in the tablet. Lisinopril tablets are supplied in 2.5mg, 5mg, 10mg, 20mg, 30mg and 40mg tablets. Inactive ingredients that can be found in lisinopril tablets include calcium phosphate, magnesium stearate, mannitol and starch. Lisinopril tablets should be stored at room temperature and protected from moisture, freezing and excessive heat.

  • Lisinopril – Absorption and Half-Life

    Lisinopril (Zestril) reaches peak serum concentrations about seven hours after oral administration. When taken orally, the absorption of lisinopril is not generally affected if the medication is taken with food. The effective half-life of lisinopril after oral administration is twelve hours. Many people will see effects on their blood pressure from one to twenty-four hours after a dose of lisinopril (Prinivil). Other people will need up to four weeks before the target blood pressure is reached. Lisinopril does not seem to bind to other proteins in the serum and is excreted in the urine. Because it is processed by the kidneys, impaired renal function can decrease the amount of lisinopril eliminated from the body.
