Hello,
Welcome to justanswer and thank you for your question.
Well Lisinopril belongs to a group of drugs called ACE inhibitors.
It is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension).
It would lower your heart rate and blood pressure level.
You should avoid strenuous exercise and take rest.
If you get lightheaded or dizzy it could mean you have too low of a pulse rate or low blood pressure level.
You should stay hydrated today and take it relatively easy. Avoid any strenuous activity.
Please keep an eye on your blood pressure levels.
It may take up to 12 hours, for drug to be out of your system.
Good luck and take care.
Please let me know how I can be of further assistance.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions.

Dear,
Ideally, when a person has 90 millimeters of mercury (mm Hg) or less systolic blood pressure or 60 mm Hg or less diastolic blood pressure then it is generally considered as low blood pressure, or 90/ 60.
You should keep an eye on your blood pressure levels.
Please keep yourself hydrated.
