Advice & Tips: Was expecting a positive effect which did not materialize. See link. My experience was that lisonopril's effectiveness would expire before I as to take the next pill. In my MD's words, the drug's half-life was ineffective. http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2009-08/sumc-ihd081209.php
