Is Quinipril And Lisinopril The Same Type Of Medication?

MY HUSBAND TAKES QUINIPRIL AND WE LOST OUR HEALTH INSURANCE DUE TO LAY OFF. HE WENT TO REFILL IT AT WALMART AND THEY WANT 150.00. HE HAS NOT GOTTEN IT AND CANNOT AFFORD IT FOR A COUPLE OF WEEKS. I TAKE LISINOPRIL AND WAS WONDERING IF IT WOULD HAVE THE SAME EFFECT? IT IS MUCH CHEAPER 10.00

Answer

Hi Brenda,

Both Lisinopril and Quinipril are ACE inhibitors. However, I recommend contacting his physician to discuss switching his medication and appropriate dosage before you make any changes to his medication.

All the best,
