Lisinopril dosage question

Hi:
I've been on Lisinopril 20 mg. bid for the past 5-6 years now. It works well on my HB, however once awhile, .... one or twice a week, my BP getting high.

Just wonder whether a dosage of Lisinopril 20 mg. is lower dosage?

Your imputs would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Re: Lisinopril dosage question

No, it's a standard dosage. I'm on 10 mg once per day. Do you take it at the same time every day? It is common that the effectiveness may wear off near the time you usually take it though. If you are taking it at the same time every day - or close to it - then you could mention to your doctor and see if the dosage needs to be adjusted.
