      Lisinopril

      Used For

      Hypertension

      How it works

      Lisinopril is a peptidyl dipeptidase inhibitor. It inhibits the angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) that catalyses the conversion of angiotensin I to the vasoconstrictor peptide, angiotensin II. Whilst mechanism through which lisinopril lowers blood pressure is believed to be primarily suppression of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system. Lisinopril is antihypertensive even in patients with low-renin hypertension.

      Drug Interactions

      Diuretics , Potassium supplements, potassium-sparing diuretics (e.g. spironolactone, triamterene or amiloride) or potassium-containing salt substitutes, Lithium , NSAIDs and ACE inhibitors , glyceryl trinitrate and other nitrates , tricyclic antidepressants and antipsychotics , Sympathomimetics , antidiabetic medicines (insulins, oral hypoglycemic agents ) .

      Indication

      Lisinopril is indicated for: Hypertension : The treatment of hypertension.Heart failure : The treatment of symptomatic heart failure. Acute myocardial infarction : Short-term (6 weeks) treatment of haemodynamically stable patients within 24 hours of an acute myocardial infarction.Renal complications of diabetes mellitus : Treatment of renal disease in hypertensive patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus and incipient nephropathy.

      When not to Use

      Lisinopril is contraindicated in patients:- With hypersensitivity to lisinopril, to any of the excipients or any other angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor.- With a history of angioedema associated with previous ACE inhibitor therapy.- With hereditary or idiopathic angioedema.- Who are pregnant .

      Zestril Tablets Precautions

      Precaution

      Lisinopril therapy should be immediately discontinued in patients presenting with angioedema; appropriate anti-histamine/corticosteroid therapy and monitoring should be provided until complete and sustained resolution of all signs and symptoms has occurred.

      Zestril Tablets Warnings

      Warning 1

      Occasionally, blood pressure drops too low after taking lisinopril. This usually happens after the first or second dose or when the dose is increased. It is more likely to occur in those who take diuretics, have a salt-restricted diet, are on dialysis, or are suffering from diarrhoea or vomiting. In patients at increased risk of symptomatic hypotension, initiation of therapy and dose adjustment should be closely monitored.

      Warning 2

      As with all vasodilators, lisinopril should be given with caution to patients with obstruction in the outflow tract of the left ventricle.

      Warning 3

      In patients undergoing major surgery or during anesthesia with agents that produce hypotension, lisinopril may blockangiotensin II formation secondary to compensatory renin release. If hypotension occurs and is considered to be due to this mechanism, it can be corrected by volume expansion.
