No: Not a wise combination. Can decrease the efficacy of Lisinopril and increase the incidence of kidney toxicity.

In moderation: Lisinopril is a good BP medication. Ibuprofen is a good analgesic and anti imflammatory medication, but has side effects and should be used in moderation. It can retain fluid, raise the blood pressure and irriate the stomach.
