I was just started on the medication today and i read that advil and other nsaids do not go well with this BP medicine.
Short-term use of Advil while on lisinopril is ok as stated below:
Patients receiving ACE inhibitors who require prolonged (greater than 1 week) concomitant therapy with an NSAID should have blood pressure monitored more closely following initiation, discontinuation, or change of dosage of the NSAID. Renal function should also be evaluated periodically during prolonged coadministration. The interaction is not expected to occur with low doses (e.g., low-dose aspirin) or intermittent short-term administration of NSAIDs.
I can only give you my experience with this. I'm on lisopril and have been for several years. I also take a daily ibuprofen regime. My Dr knows this and has no problem with it. Hope this helps!
