I think you mean lisinopril.

There are many anti hypertensive [blood pressure] medications.

It is easy to change to one in the same class as lisinopril [ace inhibitor], or a similar class [ARB], or a different class, such as a beta blocker, calcium channel blocker or diuretic.

Ask your doctor about these possibilities.
