Therapeutic actions: Lisinopril is in a group of drugs called ACE inhibitors. ACE stands for angiotensin converting enzyme. It works by decreasing certain chemicals that tighten the blood vessels, so blood flows more smoothly and the heart can pump blood more efficiently.

Indications: Lisinopril is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension), congestive heart failure, and to improve survival after a heart attack. Lisinopril comes as a tablet to take by mouth. It is usually taken once a day. Your doctor will probably start you on a low dose of lisinopril and gradually increase your dose.
