In brief: 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.

In brief: Check with your doc

Advil (ibuprofen) is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory which can affect the kidneys, as can aspirin.
Lisinipril is a blood pressure medication that can affect the kidneys as well, and the combination may work synergistically. Check with your doctor to see if there are concerns about your kidney. Labs may be needed to see if the benefits of these medications outweigh the risk for you specifically.
