The secret to health, joy and wellness is to trust 100% on Christ. This is the truth.

1 Peter 5:7 – Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

Lisinopril is an ACE (angiotensin-converting enzyme) inhibitor used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Lisinopril is a generic medicine used to treat high blood pressure, but it may have side effects. Lisinopril oral tablets are used for the treatment of high blood pressure (hypertension) and heart failure. Lisinopril is also used for congestive heart failure in adults, or for improving survival following heart attacks.

Because it treats both blood pressure and heart disease, lisinopril may interact with different medications, which may alter its effect, stop the drug from working, or cause additional damage to your heart. People taking Lisinopril to treat heart failure or heart attacks generally experience low blood pressure, fainting, and kidney problems as their most common side effects. Because of the risks for kidney problems, low blood pressure, high blood potassium, low blood sodium, and dehydration, lisinopril will need additional monitoring for side effects when given to people who have had kidney problems, low blood pressure, low blood volume, high blood potassium, low sodium, or are undergoing dialysis. Because of the risk for angioedema, lisinopril will require extra caution when given to people with certain types of heart disease, blood vessel problems, or autoimmune disorders.

John 14:27 – Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Older patients are more likely to have age-related problems, which may require care and an adjustment of doses in patients receiving lisinopril. You also may need to avoid taking lisinopril with aliskiren if you have kidney problems.

Because of the way that lisinopril works, it is important that you keep taking it as prescribed, even if you feel no difference when taking Lisinopril. While you should be aware of rebound hypertension, or hypertension that is elevated, this is a rare effect, and taking a medication less frequently, instead of stopping altogether, is unlikely to alter that result. If certain side effects are not monitored by your doctor, they may turn into major health risks, but generally, medications such as Lisinopril can be adjusted to allow the side effects to fade.

Matthew 6:34 – Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

Abusing a prescription like lisinopril, which does not produce an intoxicating high, may mean one is at risk for a relapse into substance abuse of a more dangerous medication. Although lisinopril does not produce highs in the same way as commonly abused drugs, including prescription painkillers, sedative-hypnotics, benzodiazepines, and prescription stimulants, some individuals misuse Lisinopril.

Lisinopril increases the effects of drugs designed to reduce blood sugar, increasing your risk for hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). Diabetes medications Taking a diabetes medication with lisinopril may reduce blood sugar too much.

Your healthcare provider will monitor potassium levels using blood tests when you take lisinopril oral tablets. It is rare for this to cause problems, but it is very possible that your doctor may want to monitor potassium levels with blood tests. Your doctor may want to check your liver function periodically through blood tests while taking this medicine.

Philippians 4:6 – Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

If your kidney function is impaired, you may need lower doses of this medicine. If you have reduced kidney function or renal impairment, including narrowing of the blood vessels in the kidneys, talk to your healthcare provider about how this medicine might affect your health, how your health may affect how well you dose and use this medicine, and if you need any special monitoring. For treatment of heart failure, you may take weeks to months before you fully experience the benefits of this medicine.

Romans 8:31 – What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

All of that traffic through your blood vessels is likely causing them damage, leading to problems in both the vessels themselves (atherosclerosis) and your organs, such as the kidneys and the heart, which is why getting treated is so important. Lisinopril and other ACE inhibitors work by relaxing your blood vessels and making them wider, which reduces the pressure of the blood inside these vessels (aka, your blood pressure). Lisinopril works by blocking the substances in the body that make your blood vessels tight.

Like other ACE inhibitors, lisinopril stops the hormone angiotensin II from being produced, causing blood vessels to tighten and liquids to accumulate. Lisinopril is a competitive inhibitor of angiotensin-converting enzymes (ACEs) and it prevents angiotensin I from being converted into angiotensin II, which is a powerful vasoconstrictor. ACE inhibitors such as lisinopril lower blood pressure, decreasing the risk of damage to your heart and the risk of heart disease associated with blood vessel damage.

Isaiah 41:10 – Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.

As with other ACE inhibitors, the pill Lisinopril may be less effective at lowering blood pressure in Black patients compared with non-Black patients, perhaps due to a higher prevalence of low-renin status among Black populations who are hypertensive. Pharmacodynamic Effects Although the mechanism by which Lisinopril reduces blood pressure is thought to mainly involve the suppression of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system, Lisinopril is also an antihypertensive agent even in patients with low-renin hypertension. Tricyclic antidepressants reduce blood pressure as a side effect, therefore, combination of these with lisinopril or any other blood pressure medicine may result in hypotension.

In addition to using Lisinopril, your treatment for high blood pressure might include weight management and changes in the types of foods you eat, particularly foods that are high in sodium (salt). This prescription medicine, available as a pill or a liquid, may also be used for heart disease and diabetes kidney disease. Available under brand names Zestril, Prinivil, and Qbrelis, lisinopril (in combination with other medications) also helps improve the length of time you live after a heart attack (myocardial infarction) and may be used to improve symptoms of congestive heart failure.

Matthew 28:20 – Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Drugs to prevent organ transplant rejection Take these medicines with lisinopril to raise the risk of angioedema (swelling), a serious allergic reaction. Pain medications Taking some medicines to help ease pain with lisinopril may reduce kidney function. Blood pressure drugs Taking certain blood pressure medicines with lisinopril increases your risk of low blood pressure, high blood potassium, and kidney problems, including kidney failure. The number of doses you take each day, the amount of time allowed between doses, and how long you take your medicines depends on the medical problem you are using your medication for.
