Lisinopril 5, 10 and 20 mg tablets: New look

New look Active

The supplier has advised that the packaging for lisinopril is changing.

19 October 2022: Timeframe for brand switch updated, images for 10 mg packaging added.

Same medicine, new packaging

Teva is changing their brand from Ethics Lisinopril to Teva Lisinopril. It is the same medicine, made in the same way, by the same manufacturer. The tablets themselves remain unchanged. It is just different boxes and blister packs.

When will this happen?

All strengths of Teva Lisinopril are now in the supply chain. We are advised that the Ethics brand will likely run out by mid to late November.
