Just switched to lisinipril

My doctor took me off amlodipine (2.5 mg) and switched me to lisinipril (20 mg). How long does it take lisinipril to start working fully?

A quick side question.... I woke up this am with a bp of 121/81. I went to dunkin donuts and ate a high sodium sandwich and a medium decaf iced coffee. An hour later, my bp was sitting at 155ish/102. The sandwich has 1300mg of sodium. Could this have caused the spike? My bp is still around 145ish/85 after taking my first dose of lisinipril over 3 hours ago..
