LISINOPRIL

Zestril (lisinopril) is an angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor. It blocks a chemical that tightens blood vessels. This makes blood vessels relax, which lowers blood pressure and allows more blood and oxygen to get to your heart and other organs. Source: Iodine

This database lists about 447,000 of those providers who wrote 50 or more prescriptions for at least one drug that year.
