Yes: These 3 blood pressure medications have different mechanisms of action, so they are often used together.

Yes: You may safely take propranolol, Norvasc, and Maxzide 75/50 together - they do not interact. Things to watch for when you first start taking propranolol and with dose increases are lightheadedness and feeling faint, either of which should prompt a blood pressure reading to ensure that you’re not going too low. It would be ideal to get your pulse (heart rate) during an episode like that.
