ACE Inhibitors and MVP

Anyone out there take ACE Inhibitors for their MVP? I've been given a prescription for 5mg of lisinopril, but I'm slightly nervous to take it. Fears are:

1) I have very normal blood pressure. I work out all the time (long distance running) and this medication lowers blood pressure.

2) No guarantee that it will work. If I recall, ACE inhibitors will only slow the growing heart if it is poor blood flow that is making it work. Thus, I might be taking it for nothing.

3) Side effects. Any real problems with this drug?

Any help or personal experiences would be great.

Thanks!
