Epsom salt: Unless you're drinking the epsom salt, i simply don't see how a bath (ie, topical) epsom salt could possibly interact with Lisinopril which is in your blood stream. A nice, warm/hot bath should be a very good treatment for cramps and muscular pain and is a time honored rx (as in ancient greeks - used by hipprocates himself!).
