There was a study published a couple of years ago concluding that taking ACE-inhibitors such as Lisinopril are more effective when taken at bedtime.
Here is the study in case you want to look at it.

The drug in the study is captopril, part of the same drug class as lisinopril.

I know a couple of doctors have starting having their patients take meds at night more often. Not only for the heart protective benefits but also for some they no longer had side effects when taking lisinopril at night.
