Its better than nothing. However keep track of your bp and get a refill asap.

Most pharmacies will give you a loan of lisinopril to cover you until your next refill. However you shouldn't be OUT of your medication if you followed prescribed instructions, unless you couldn't afford the full prescribed amount. Taking expired medication isn't bad nor is it safe. So medications lose their effectiveness, and some don't. Some also cause adverse effects and some don't. Missing 1 dose will not hurt you, I could contact your pharmacy in the morning for a loan of the medication before taking expired, if they can't give you a loan. I would take it and contact your doctor.
