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.
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.
