I've been on 5mg Lisinopril for almost 3 months and have lost 6-8 lbs. without trying. I was only about 180lbs. to begin with. Will the weight loss eventually stop or should I stop the medication? Thanks....Tony

Lisinopril is most commonly used to help lower blood pressure.

Have you spoken to your doctor about this, yet?

The weight loss is not considered a normal side effect, but a rare and unusual one. Normally, most side effects start to wear off in 4 to 6 weeks of use.

It's very important to involve your doctor in the decision you make about the drug, since the weight loss could also be caused by something else.
