It doesn't matter too much what time of day you take the Lisinopril but it is a good idea to take it at the same time every day ie. at 24 hour intervals. If you are just starting treatment with Lisinopril it is probably a good idea to take the tablets in the evening with a meal to reduce side-effects. It is worth knowing that when first starting lisinopril it can lower the blood-pressure significantly and you need to be careful when getting out of bed or off the couch etc ie. get up slowly to avoid dizziness.

Dr OZ spoke about this in November 2010. He said to take blood pressurre meds at night

I was given Lisinopril in an EA at 12 noon and I feel poorly for a few hours after I take it how can I change it to evening. By the comments made here it sounds wiser.

I'm greatly concerned about the chance of rapid weight gain and bloating. Who out there has experienced this side effect?

This is a very thoughtful, and logical comment. Thank you suzanne66. Allen

Since there is a caution about taking lisinopril and driving I take my pill at night at bedtime. I had a horrible dry cough for several weeks when beginning this drug but the cough seems to have subsided, thank goodness.
