Lisinopril can improve kidney function. I don't know about meloxicam and all situations, but my nephrologist (kidney specialist) at a major university medical hospital recommended that I take Lisinopril for my stage 3 kidney failure. Indeed there are a number of U.S. Government National Institute of Health studies which show improved kidney function with Lisinopril.
I think the relationship with lisinopril and Kidney function is if you already have Kidney disease when you start taking it. Do you have Kidney disease, or are you just afraid you will get it? When it comes to HBP you want to make sure you take your medicines as directed by your doctor. If you don't trust that your doctor knows what he's doing, find another doctor you feel better with. HBP can damage ALL your vital organs, so you want to make sure you get it back down and keep it down. Ask me how I know...
Rhonniea, you need to find a doctor to answer these questions. You can't go in and tell a doctor you heard about another medication and you want to take that. Blood Pressure is serious business. I almost died from it! Take what your doctor tells you to take. Or, if you don't like your doctor, find another one.
