Re: how long does it take for lisinopril to work

Lisinopril is an ace inhibitor and generally works pretty quickly, a few days and pressures can start to drop.

hello, I was on lisinopril and after a few days I got a bad cough that would not go away. I had to take cough drops all day long. The dr. put me on diovan instead and the cough went away and my pressure is good now, and no more cough. kennyc

Re: how long does it take for lisinopril to work

I was on Lisinopril for about 2 years and also developed a bad cough. The Dr. changed it to something else (Tekturna) and the cough is gone after 2 weeks and my pressure is down.
