Difference between captopril and lisinopril

  1. For clinical this week I have to present various drugs and how they work, etc. My instructor has emphasized that just because two drugs are in the same class they do not necessarily work the same way.

    Does anyone know the difference between captopril and lisinopril in terms of its actions or indications? I have used two drug guide sources so far and cannot find any distinguishable difference.

    Thanks for any help you can provide!
