Why would you even think to ask that? Why would a blood pressure med have sulfa in it? No it doesn't.

Actually, this is not a silly question, and your answer isn't that simple. Lisinopril is often coupled with HCTZ (hydrochlorothiazide) as a diuretic to treat high blood pressure. HCTZ is, in fact, a sulfonamide. Your doctor must specify Lisinopril without. HCTZ. I have an allergy to Sulfa, hence to HCTZ. It made my feet, ankles and hands swell to a dangerous level mimicking symptoms of blood clots. Especially in my case when the swelling generally presented in one foot/ankle or the other at a time. You can also look at the molecular structures of most drugs in the patient information pamphlet or on the internet. Sulfonamides appear as a capital 'S' so double check with your doctor, pharmacist, or poison control before taking. Best of luck to you!
