"For example, if a patient is taking a lisinopril a diuretic to treat high blood pressure at home, the doctor would want to re-consider prescribing that patient ibuprofen because there could be an interaction that may be harmful to the patient's health," said Bridgeman.
A/ The angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor lisinopril reduces the number of migraines by about 1.5 per month in patients experiencing 2 to 6 migraines monthly (strength of recommendation [SOR]: B, small crossover trial); the angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB) candesartan may produce a similar reduction (SOR: C, conflicting crossover trials).

ACE inhibitors like lisinopril act by inhibiting ACE, decreases angiotensinogen II activity and increases the bradykinin and (met) enkaphalin.
Lisinopril, (S)-1-[[N.sup.2]-(1-carboxy-3-phenylpropyl)-L lysyl]-L-proline, (Figure 1), is an angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, widely used in the treatment of hypertension, congestive heart failure, acute myocardial infarction, and diabetic nephropathy [3, 6-8].
