Prinivil (Lisinopril) is a synthetic peptide derivative and belongs to a group of medications called angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors. Lisinopril is administered to treat congestive heart failure, and high blood pressure (hypertension) as well as to help prevent kidney failure as a result of diabetes and high blood pressure.
This medication also aids in improving one’s chances of survival after a heart attack. Angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors are important as they are enzymes which are responsible for producing a chemical called angiotensin II. In almost all arteries (including arteries within the heart), angiotensin II causes muscles to contract which in turn causes the arteries to become narrow and eventually raise blood pressure levels. Lisinopril helps lower blood pressure by reducing angiotensin II. This helps the arterial muscle to relax and the arteries to enlarge. You can buy Prinivil in the form of tablets with strengths of 2.5mg, 5mg and 10mg.
Do not consume alcohol while taking Prinivil as this combination will lower your blood pressure. If while taking Lisinopril you vomit, pass loose stools or sweat profusely, you could become dehydrated, which may in turn lead to electrolyte disorders or very low blood pressure. Unless your healthcare professional has advised you otherwise, do not take potassium supplements or salt substitutes while taking Prinivil.
You should drink a lot of water every day while on your prescribed course. Discontinue taking Lisinopril if you plan on getting pregnant or have already conceived. Do not breast feed your infant once you purchase Prinivil without consulting the doctor as it is uncertain whether Prinivil passes into breast milk or not.
Once you order Prinivil, do not take an overdose as you could experience certain symptoms, such as fainting spells or extreme dizziness or light-headedness. You could experience dizziness if you get up too quickly from a lying down or sitting position. Before you begin taking Lisinopril, inform the healthcare professional if you have a history of congestive heart failure or other heart diseases, liver complications, diabetes, or kidney complications as well as connective tissue diseases, for instance rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Marfan syndrome, scleroderma or Sjogren's syndrome.
