Yes, that would correlate well. Your doctor is probably going to monitor you on that dose of lisinopril and increase the dose slowly if necessary.

The dose range of lisinopril is

Adults—At first, 10 milligrams (mg) once a day. Then, your doctor may increase your dose to 20 to 40 mg per day taken as a single dose.

And the dose range of losartan is:

Initial dose: 50 mg orally once a day.
Maintenance dose: 25 to 100 mg orally in 1 to 2 divided doses.
