Indications for Drugs ::
Heart failure, Myocardial infarction, Diabetic nephropathy, Hypertension
Drug Dose ::
Oral Hypertension Adult: Initially, 10 mg/day, 1st dose given preferably at bedtime to avoid precipitous fall in BP. Patient w/ renovascular HTN, volume depletion, severe HTN: Initially, 2.5-5 mg once daily. Patient on diuretic: Initially, 5 mg once daily. Maintenance: 20 mg once daily, up to 80 mg/day may be given if needed. Child: >6 yr Initially, 0.07 mg/kg, up to 5 mg once daily. Renal impairment: Adult: CrCl <10 mL/min or on dialysis: Initially, 2.5 mg once daily. CrCl 10-30 mL/min: Initially, 2.5-5 mg once daily. CrCl 31-80 mL/min: Initially, 5-10 mg once daily. Dose can be adjusted up to max 40 mg once daily based on patient's response. Child: Do not give if GFR <30 mL/min/1.73 m2. CrCl (ml/min) <10 Initially, 2.5 mg once daily. 10-30 Initially 2.5-5 mg once daily. 31-80 Initially, 5-10 mg once daily. Heart failure Adult: As adjunct: Initially, 2.5 or 5 mg/day, increased by increments of >10 mg at intervals of at least 2 wk to max maintenance dose of 40 mg/day. Post myocardial infarction Adult: Initially, 5 mg once daily for 2 days started w/in 24 hr of the onset of symptoms. Increase to 10 mg once daily. Patients w/ low systolic BP: Initially, 2.5 mg once daily. Diabetic nephropathy Adult: Hypertensive type 2 diabetics w/ microalbuminuria: 10 mg once daily, may increase to 20 mg once daily to achieve a sitting diastolic BP <90 mmHg. Contraindication ::
History of angioedema related to previous treatment with ACE inhibitors, hereditary or idiopathic angioedema. Bilateral renal artery stenosis. Pregnancy (2nd or 3rd trimester), lactation.
Drug Precautions ::
Hypovolaemia, hyperkalaemia, collagen vascular disease, valvular stenosis; before, during or immediately after anaesthesia, preexisting renal insufficiency, unilateral renal artery stenosis. Children <6 yr. Assess renal function. May impair ability to drive or operate machinery. Drug Side Effects ::
Dizziness, headache, fatigue; cough, upper respiratory tract infection; rash; diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain; chest pain, weakness; orthostatic effects; hypotension; hyperkalaemia; impotence; decreased haemoglobin; increased serum creatinine. Potentially Fatal: Severe hypotension, angioedema.
Pregnancy category ::
Drug Mode of Action ::
Lisinopril competitively inhibits ACE from converting angiotensin I to angiotensin II (a potent vasoconstrictor) resulting in increased plasma renin activity and reduced aldosterone (a hormone that causes water and Na retention) secretion. This promotes vasodilation and BP reduction.
Drug Interactions ::
May enhance hypotensive effect w/ diuretics. May increase risk of renal function deterioration and decrease antihypertensive effect w/ NSAIDs. May increase serum levels and toxicity of lithium. Increased risk of hyperkalaemia w/ K-sparing diuretics and K supplements. May increase nitritoid reactions of gold Na thiomalate. Potentially Fatal: Increased risk of hypotension, hyperkalaemia and changes in renal function w/ aliskiren in patients w/ diabetes or renal impairment.
