Grapefruit only interact with medicines that are metabolized a certain way, including the statins used in the treatment of high cholesterol, calcium channel blockers, benzodiazepines and others.
Lisinopril is an angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor and is not in one of the drug classes affected by the grapefruit interaction.
