Lisinopril is what I'm on. I had to look up the side effects since I'm sensitive to medication. It's an ACE inhibitor. It can make you dizzy, headaches, increase your potassium levels (WebMD says don't take a potassium supplement if you're taking Lisinopril.)

You can have abnormally low blood pressure, decreased blood platelets, decreased function of the bone marrow. Decreased neutrophils (a type of white blood cell), deficiency of granulocytes - a type of white blood cell.

I'd suggest doing a Google search to see what you can find. I've noticed you can't find the information you need all in one place. Good luck!

No, that is not listed as known side effects.

In addition to what Nikki has already stated, you may experience nausea, increased urination, hypotension, and dehydration.

A high red blood cell count can sometimes be due to lifestyle factors, or other health issues.

Are you on any other medications?

What condition(s) have you been diagnosed with?

Dehydration can cause it too.
