What time of day should Lisinopril be taken if prescribed to take 1 tablet daily?


Official Answer Medically reviewed by Last updated on Oct 22, 2020.

If you are just starting treatment with Lisinopril it is a good idea to take the tablets in the evening. 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. It is important to take Lisinopril at the same time every day ie. at 24 hour intervals.

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?

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.

It looks like I may be in the minority, here. After taking lisinopril always in the morning, I decided to switch to an evening dose, after reading similar information as stated here. That proved to be a big mistake, for me. For about five weeks, my blood pressure went to crazy heights. I was sweating profusely whenever I had to go out on errands and getting very light headed. Then, I remember that I had switched my lisinopril dosage time. Needless to say, I switched back to a morning dose. Those bad symptoms stopped, thank goodness. Good luck to all you lovely people.
