Hello,

My name is***** and I am a board certified physician.

I understand you just started lisinopril for blood pressure.

Muscle aches are not a common side-effect of lisinopril and are more likely due to something else rather than the medication. I recommend you continue the medication and keep an eye on your muscle aches, if they persist then try coming off of it and see if they resolve.

I also take 150mg of Effexor daily

There is no interaction between effexor and lisinopril so you don't have to worry
