Brexit / COVID-19 update: Our services are running as normal.
Note: You must complete a short online consultation so that our doctor can ensure that the treatment is suitable for you. The above pricing should only be used as a reference. The final decision to issue this treatment lies with the prescribing doctor.
It works mainly by blocking the action of an enzyme known as ACE. This enzyme stimulates the production of angiotensin II, a natural compound that causes blood vessels to narrow. Less angiotensin II present in the body means that blood vessels are more relaxed, allowing blood to flow much more freely around the body, taking the strain off the body's most important muscle – the heart.
This beneficial effect on the heart is also why this treatment is given to patients who are recovering from a heart attack.
Lisinopril is generally a very well tolerated treatment, but like all hypertension treatments it should only be considered if a blood-pressure-lowering lifestyle has not produced results or your health is at serious risk if a treatment regimen isn't started.
People who may not be able to take this medication are those with congestive heart failure, heart disease, liver disease, kidney problems, diabetes or diseases that affect connective tissues. It will also not be prescribed to pregnant or breastfeeding women because of the known risk this treatment has to the baby.
It should be taken on a daily basis with a full glass of water. Food is not a requirement when taking this medication, but eating before taking it may reduce the risk of some of the minor gastrointestinal side effects. There are four doses available: 5mg, 10mg, 20mg and 40mg. The dose you should take will be decided by your doctor and adjusted according to your body's responses.
Side effects are as much a risk with Lisinopril as they are with any prescription medication, but it doesn't mean that everybody who takes it will experience them. The most common side effects include a feeling of light-headedness, fainting, tiredness, weight gain and changes in the amount of times you need to urinate.
These side effects are likely to pass with time, as the body adjusts to the treatment, but if they persist or you find them very bothersome, you should seek immediate medical help. This should also be the procedure if you start experiencing the symptoms of an allergic reaction, which may include swelling of the face lips or tongue and breathing difficulties.
121doc work with qualified doctors and pharmacies, making it safe and convenient for patients, who are already using Lisinopril, to get a repeat prescription online. Thanks to our online consultation service, our doctors are able to evaluate your health and then provide a prescription, if it's suitable. Patients should just ensure that they complete the online consultation, which is quick and free, as thoroughly as possible when they place their order.
If a prescription is approved it will be forwarded to our pharmacy the very same day where it will be dispatched for next day delivery as soon as possible. If our doctor feels that it's not safe to provide you with a repeat prescription, you will not be charged and you are welcome to get in contact with our customer service team if you have questions. We offer multiple treatments at 121 doc for high blood pressure. For more information visit amlodipine, Ramipril and bendroflumenthiazide pages.
