on 2.5mg Lisinopril and suffer ocasional bouts of lightheadness and confusion. Why does it happen only occasionally?

It probably happens when your blood pressure drops low. You probably run ok most of the time but on occasion you drop too low then get the symptoms of dizziness and confusion because not enough blood is being shuttled to your brain and the brain responds by giving you those symptoms. Next time you have a spell, take your blood pressure and see what your readings are. I'd give my bet that they will be very low.
