I experienced overdoses (later confirmed by my doctor) when taking 10mg (I think) of lisinopril. Looking back, a smaller dose might have been ok. (I have been on a total of 5 different meds and lisinopril and norvasc seemed to have the least serious side effects for me).

If you've read the package insert (before buying the med) and decide to go ahead and try it, I would recommend starting on the lowest dose possible. In the past couple of years, I've suspected that the reason some of us are having problems with our pressures is that our meds are too strong...I'm not going to go into this here except to say that starting off at a lower than needed dose may not hurt. You can always increase the dosage if need be.
