tremor can be more a side effect of lisinopril
yes you can develop side effects even after being on a drug for a long time.

But you also take these after dinner.
It would be good to measure your blood sugar sometime when this happens to make sure you do not have reactive hypoglycemia..if the sugar goes below 70.

You might also switch the lisinopril to before dinner or before breakfast and see if the same thing occurs.
good luck
