Second, make sure you speak with your medical provider if your medications are causing some unwelcome side effects, that way they can possibly change medications and or dose.
That being said, there are other prescriptions medications on the market that may be a better fit for you and your high blood pressure than only Lisinopril.

Speak with your doctor about these other options. As you fit in exercise you may find you need less and less of the medication that is causing your problems.
