Lisinopril is an ACE inhibitor, that is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure.

If you are being treated for high blood pressure, you should be informed to avoid food or beverage products that contain real licorice or licorice extract, since it can raise blood pressure.

The only food/beverage interaction is that you should watch out for items that contain very high levels of potassium. Getting to much potassium, while taking Lisinopril can lead to Hyperkalemia, which can be a dangerous condition.

Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, headache and stomach pain.

I realize this is an old thread, but I thought I'd respond anyways, for future readers. I've been on Lisinopril (20 mg. and now 10 mg. per day) for the past 2 years. My doctors have told me to not take anti-inflammatory pain meds (NSAIDs) like Ibuprofen very often. Also, there are a lot of over-the-counter cold meds that I'm not supposed to take (e.g. Nyquil) or anything that contains pseudoephedrine. And, as mentioned here already, I should not take any vitamins that contain extra potassium and should not eat foods very high in potassium (e.g. bananas, tomatoes) too much on a daily basis. However, eating them sometimes is fine.

NOT a doctor JUST A PERSON Says:
 
you should be fine just don't do it again! Your bp might be low tomorrow, but after a couple days the drug should be out of your system.

I AM NOT A DOCTOR, THIS IS ONLY A GUESS SO DON'T SUBSTITUTE MY ADVICE FOR MEDICAL ADVICE. CALL YOUR DOCTOR ANYWAY!!

The problem with taking NSAIDs (e.g. iburprofen or Aleve) with Lisinopril is that it can damage your kidneys. According to my doctor, it's okay to take an NSAID occasionally, but not very often. She said the best thing I should take for pain is Tylenol. As for the potassium interaction, apparently Lisinopril makes your kidneys store potassium, so there is a risk of developing hyperkalemia if you take supplements containing potassium along with it. Also, one thing I've found is that I need to take my Lisinopril tablet (10 mg. per day) after I eat a large meal, or it can upset my stomach. I take mine in the evening, after dinner. However, I do still occasionally have problems with stomach acid (pains in stomach), especially when I lay down for bed, but I'm not sure if that's related to the Lisinopril or something else (as I had a C-section around the same time I began taking Lisinopril).
