It is possible that the weight gain is caused by specific factors besides the medicine -- or a combination of factors that may or may not include lisinopril.
Lsinopril and weight gain is that rapid weight gain (more than three to five pounds in a week) is a possible sign of congestive heart failure. Therefore, you should contact your doc: Unexplained, rapid weight gain; Swelling of the feet, ankles or legs, which could also be called bloating.
Take care, best wishes!

Lisinopril is a diuretic as well as a beta blocker. The bloating, being tired and weight gain are signs of Edema, or a water weight. Cutting down on your food intake will not make it go away but going on a salt free diet will be helpful. Lisinoprin can be a direct cause of the edema if you are diuretic resistance. Weigh yourself everyday and if you gain more then 3pounds in a day or 5 pounds in a week check in with your doctor as this is a major problem because these are signs of heart failure.
