I am currently taking lisinopril for high blood pressure. My morning readings are normal 125/80 (around there). My evening readings are 167/106 (always over 100 for bottom number. I take 10 mg. lisinopril around 7:00 p.m. I get this reading before taking medication. Two hours later, I take reading again. Almost same numbers. Does anyone have an answer?
