Brief Answer:
Risk of hypotension

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Taking Nifedical and Hydrochlorothizide can cause blood pressure to fall very suddenly. I would consider it risky to take both medication at the same time.

Metaprolol also can cause hypotension. if taken anywhere near the above two drugs can cause serious reduction in the blood pressure.

The rest medications are fine.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.

Regards,

My BP was around 150/100 and I was started on lisinopril at 20 mg. After 3 weeks it is typically around 130/88. However every once in a while (twice) it has spiked back up to 150/95. Both times this occurred it was after a day when I had diarrhea. Two questions - first could the lisinopril be purged following diarrhea such that it takes a day or two to get back to the normal effects of the drug and second. While on Lisonopril is it typical to occasionally have your BP break through the effects of the drug
