Lisinopril is commonly prescribed to treat conditions affecting the heart and blood vessels, such as high blood pressure. It can also help improve survival following a heart attack. The drug blocks the angiotensin-converting enzyme, which is normally part of a reaction in the body that causes blood vessels to narrow.
Its not a diuretic, you must talk to the doc./pharmacist who prescribed the med, hope this helps?
