Lisinopril is a good medicine. I have been using it myself since few months and it has controlled my high blood pressure. The best part is that I buy the medicine online from http://www.themexicanpharma.org and get it delivered at my door step within time. I am quite satisfied with their services.

Comment:
This medication controlled my blood pressure but had my bones and joints aching to the point where i had to stop working. After i discovered it was the lisinopril, i stopped taking it. My bones are still a little sore but at least i'm able to get out of bed without being in tremendous pain. Slowly recovering.
