It doesn't matter too much what time of day you take the Lisinopril but it is a good idea to take it at the same time every day ie. at 24 hour intervals. If you are just starting treatment with Lisinopril it is probably a good idea to take the tablets in the evening with a meal to reduce side-effects. It is worth knowing that when first starting lisinopril it can lower the blood-pressure significantly and you need to be careful when getting out of bed or off the couch etc ie. get up slowly to avoid dizziness.
