Can I take advil, (ibuprofen) lisinopril, and aspirin?

Can I take advil, (ibuprofen) lisinopril, and aspirin?

Be careful: Generally I do not recommend this combination. Ibuprofen and Lisinopril together can trigger kidney failure especially if the patient becomes dehydrated. Secondly long term use of Ibuprofen can actually raise blood pressure reducing the effectiveness of the lisinopril. That being said, it is usually ok to use for 2-3 days, or every other day but only 400 -800 mg a day of ibuprofen. ...Read more

Can I take ibuprofen while on lisinopril and hctz (hydrochlorothiazide)? I heard it can cause renal failure?  As far as I know my kidneys r healthy

Yes with caution: Yes there is an increased risk of renal problems with lisinoril/hctz and ibuprofen, this combination also reduces the effectiveness of lisinopril/hctz in control of blood pressure if taken in high doses for a long time. Occasional use is fine, for long term use, do so under the care of a physician who can monitor for side. Try tylenol (acetaminophen) it also resolve pain/headaches with none of above issues. ...Read more

Is there any problem with taking both a muscle relaxer and Motrin 800 if I take 10 mg lisinopril daily?

Is there any problem with taking both a muscle relaxer and Motrin 800 if I take 10 mg lisinopril daily?

Medications: I would not take motrin with lisinopril. Motrin can affect kidney function, and lisinopril modulates kidney function to regulate blood pressure. You can induce a mild kidney injury depending on how much motrin you take a day. I would use the muscle relaxer, and use tylenol (acetaminophen) extra strength instead. This will not interact with lisinopril. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Extra dose: No, unlikely to be dangerous. It might lower your blood pressure a few more points than normal, but it is unlikely to cause any symptoms. The worst thing that might happen would be that it might make you a little light-headed. IF this happens, sit down or lie down and it should pass in a few minutes. Be gentle about going from lying to standing position for the next 24 hrs. ...Read more
