For example if I drink beer or whiskey daily. How does this affect you?

There are no known interactions listed between alcohol and Lisinopril. If drinking alcohol it is always recommended to drink in moderation. It should be noted that if Lisinopril makes you dizzy or drowsy then be aware that alcohol could accentuate this.
It is also important that you remain hydrated and drink plenty of water because dehydration can lead to kidney problems for people taking Lisinopril.
this is my question?
Hey Cah2910, this is just part of what I read in the A to Z at the top of the page for Lisinipril. I do not take it, but my hubby & my brother do.
Avoid drinking alcohol. It can further lower your blood pressure and may increase some of the side effects of lisinopril. Do not use salt substitutes or potassium supplements while taking lisinopril, unless your doctor has told you to.
Please go to the Drugs.com A to Z site & read what can happen mixing this with alcohol, please? Concerned for you,
I started on Lisinopril not long ago, mine is for different reasons but even though alcohol is not contrandicated please discuss this with your physician, many things can happen to different people because we are all different, Laurie gave you the right advice, but just talk with your doctor far better that you be on the safe side, I think that's what so special on this site everybody does care, take god care
There are no known interactions between alcohol and lisinopril. That being said, be careful if the lisinopril makes you dizzy, the alcohol consumption could make it worse.
Other food interactions mentioned in the literature include potassium consumption. Do not consume alot of potassium rich foods like
Lima Beans , plantains, Jerusalem Artichokes, Bananas, Oat Bran, Tomatoes, Cucumber, Cantaloupe, Pears, and Mangoes
and particularly potassium based salts.
Hope this helps,
