Can metoprol 50mg be taken with clonidine 0.1mg & lisinopril 20-12.5? My pulse tends to go up at times.
Yes: Often high blood pressure requires multiple medications to control. I am hesitant to use metoprolol (a beta blocker) with Clonidine (an Alpha agonist) as they can both lead to bradycardia or slow heart rate, but often it is necessary or even useful. My biggest concern for Clonidine is that it can cause sedation and make you feel very tired. ...Read more
Not sure why BP severely elevated. Cont'd rising to 229/112. Went to ER given clonidine. Lisinopril added to prescription atenolol. Can chronic pain elevate bp?

An ultrasound of your kidneys and the arteries going to your kidneys and several other tests need to be done. Your risk for cardiovascular events is high, however, you can lower your risk. Get help. Be well. ...Read more

With the exception: Of the innate side effects in each medication, and as long as your blood pressure is not too low, then it is a pretty safe mix as they do not work on the same receptors and shouldn't overlap. That being said, the one possible problem is taking an NSAID (celebrex) and lisinopril, you can cause kidney damage as one shuts down efferent and one afferent arteries to glomeruli. Be cautious. ...Read more
See answer: 3 blood pressure meds (t, l, c) and an anti-inflammatory NSAID medication (ce) with potential for some adverse interaction (s). 1) t+c: may lower BP or heart rate too much; 2) t + ce: may lower BP or heart rate too much; 3) l + ce: may worsen kidney function.
