Family practice : These two medications are often used together for hypertension with heart condition. Lisinopril dilates blood vessels to lower BP , metoprolol slows down the heart rate but helps each beat to more effective. They can lower your BP or hr too much so your dr needs to see you back and check on their effect on you.

Drug interactions: There is no incidence of increased side affects (sa) taking Lisinopril (l) and metoprolol (m) together, l can cause a cough, which is non-productive, and can cause, in rare cases, swelling of the lips. M can cause a slow pulse rate and can cause some erectile dysfunction. Using both of these agents to treat hypertension does not increase the frequency of the sa's of either drug. Ask your doctor.
