1 doctor agrees

In brief: 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.

In brief: No

Not a wise combination.
Can decrease the efficacy of Lisinopril and increase the incidence of kidney toxicity.
