About Lisinopril-Hydrochlorothiazide (Generic Zestoretic)

How does it work?

This hypertension medication contains two drugs that help lower blood pressure.

Lisinopril is an angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor. It blocks a protein (ACE) that tells blood vessels to tighten. This helps keep blood vessels relaxed.

Hydrochlorothiazide is a diuretic (or “water pill”) that makes you urinate (pee) more often. This helps remove extra fluid and salts from the body.

What does it treat?

Lisinopril-Hydrochlorothiazide is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). It helps lower blood pressure, which can reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke and kidney problems.

What forms does it come in?

This medication comes as a tablet that you take by mouth. It’s available in both brand and generic versions.

Lisinopril-Hydrochlorothiazide vs. Zestoretic

Lisinopril-Hydrochlorothiazide and Zestoretic are actually the same drug. They both contain the same two medications: Lisinopril, an ACE inhibitor, and Hydrochlorothiazide, a diuretic. Lisinopril-Hydrochlorothiazide is the generic version and Zestoretic is the brand name of the drug.

How much will it cost?

Dr. B offers online consultations for $15—which is less than most copays. If a high blood pressure prescription is appropriate, your out-of-pocket medication cost will depend on your insurance and where you decide to get your prescription filled. With a drug discount card, prices for Lisinopril 20 mg-Hydrochlorothiazide 12.5 mg (30 tablets) start at $3.19.

Also tell your medical provider about any other medications you’re using before you start this hypertension treatment.

How do you take this medication?

This medicine is usually taken once a day, with or without food. If it bothers your stomach, take it with 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?

Try to remember to take your blood pressure medicine exactly as prescribed. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember. If it’s almost time for your next dose, just skip it. Don’t take extra to catch up or take two pills at the same time.

What happens if I take too much?

Taking too much of your blood pressure medicine can cause symptoms like dizziness, fainting or dehydration.

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