Lupin 40

I can understand the pharmacies thinking the pill is from another country. Lupin is a large Indian pharm manufacturer. The company recently received approval from the FDA to market several generics, but the imprints aren't in the databases yet (except for one antibiotic that Watson distributes).

Lupin has a brand new US website listing most of its products.

Round yellow tablet imprinted Lupin 40 is 40 mg lisinopril, an ACE inhibitor used to treat high blood pressure.

Lisinopril also helps to treat patients with heart failure (heart does not pump strongly enough). Generic lisinopril tablets are available.
