Thanks for info as you have uncontrolled blood pressure you are on Tab Lisinopril along with Hydrochlorthiazide 25 mg once a day and you have no history of diabetes keeping your history in mind i will suggest you to get your echocardiography to see heart chamber size because uncontrolled prolong blood pressure can result in to enlarged heart ,usually it is said that ABCD rule is applied for the treatment of blood pressure if age of patient is less then 55 then usually ACE inhibitors and/or beta blockers are advised and above 55 years calcium channel blocker and diuretics ,i will suggest you that you should consult Cardiologist for your problem and in addition to Lisinopril you should add beta blockers to your treatment ,loose weight ,avoid salt ,exrcise should be encouraged.

Thanks and wishing you a good health.
