More Lisinopril side effects » More Digoxin side effects » How it works Lisinopril Digoxin 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. Digoxin helps your heart work more efficiently. It makes your heart pump slower and stronger, which helps it get more blood and oxygen out to your body and organs.
