There is a minor interaction between lisinopril and medicines like Viagra and Cialis. You can take these together but just be aware that they may cause low blood pressure when taken together.

Please see link below for the interaction in detail.

I wonder, though, if Aetna pays for Cialis. I believe that it should be covered. Being high blood pressure is a medical condition, Cialis is needed to help the "The problem". I have yet to contact Aetna, I trust they will cover Cialis.
