Do you take it at bedtime? I would definately call the dr, there are other meds, and no one needs to have life hindered by meds.
No Obviously getting Dizzy while you are driving is not Normal, And not safe, for you, and everyone else. But have you ever had any other sort of Dizzy Spells before this? Lisinopril has a few side effects, and as stated 1 common side effect is Dizziness or getting Light headed. Lisinopril, is an Angio-tension Converting Enzyme. (ACE) Usually used in patients ho have either suffered from a heart attack, or to prevent One. In any case I would NOT DRIVE AT ALL, while taking this Medicine, and call your Dr and tell him how you feel, That is why he is getting paid, he may tell you that you may need another medication. Driving is dangerous enough these days, we don't need people getting dizzy and passing out causing severe accidents, over something so easily avoided with a phone call.
Sorry if I am coming across a little hostile, but not only have I lost a dear friend in a car accident, but I was just in one that could have been avoided so easily, I think they should up the diving age to 25.
So Think about other people before pulling out of your driveway.
Dizziness is a common side effect. You should talk with your doctor as it is not safe to drive if you are feeling like this. You need to determine if lisinopril is the cause.
