About Lisinopril (Generic Zestril)

How does it work?

Lisinopril belongs to a class of medications known as angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. It blocks a protein (known as ACE) that causes blood vessels to tighten. This helps relax blood vessels and reduce the workload on the heart, which helps lower blood pressure.

What does it treat?

Lisinopril is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). It can also be used to treat symptoms of heart failure and improve the chances of survival after a heart attack.

What forms does it come in?

This hypertension medicine comes as a tablet or a solution. It is taken by mouth.

Please note that Lisinopril solution is not listed among the available options on the Dr. B platform at this time.

Lisinopril vs. Zestril

Lisinopril and Zestril are actually the same medication. Lisinopril is the generic name, while Zestril is a brand name for the same drug. They both work in the same way to treat conditions like high blood pressure.

How much will it cost?

Dr. B offers online consultations for $15—which is less than most copays.

How do you take this medication?

Lisinopril is usually taken once a day, with or without food.

High blood pressure is a long-term (chronic) condition that can harm your organs. Medications for blood pressure are not a one-time cure. This medicine doesn't provide a complete cure for high blood pressure, so it's important to continue taking it, even if you start feeling better. If you stop taking it suddenly, this could cause dangerous problems, like heart attack or stroke. Follow your medical provider's instructions carefully.

Also, please keep in mind that it may take some time for this medication to achieve its full effect in managing your blood pressure. Don't be discouraged if you don't notice immediate changes. Continue taking your medication as prescribed, and consult with your healthcare provider if you have any questions or concerns.

What happens if I miss a dose?

If you forget to take a dose of your blood pressure medication, take it as soon as you remember. If it’s almost time for your next dose, then skip it. Never take two doses at the same time to make up for a missed one.

What happens if I take too much?

Taking too much of your blood pressure medicine may lead to symptoms like dizziness or fainting.

If you’ve taken too much Lisinopril, call your medical provider or local poison control center (800-222-1222) immediately.

Can I get Lisinopril (Generic Zestril) online?

Yes! Just complete a Dr. B virtual health questionnaire. A licensed medical provider will review your health history to determine if an online refill is appropriate. If it is, they can send it to your preferred pharmacy.
