Can I just stop taking lisinopril?

It is interfering with my potassium level as I have low aldosterone and it is important to get the potassium level back up.

You should not stop taking the lisinopril suddenly without your doctors permission - you could risk experiencing rebound hypertension, which is a sudden increase in blood pressure in response to stopping or reducing hypertension medications.
