Q: Can Aldactone, Lisinoprol and Atenolol be together to control high blood pressure?

I ask about Aldactone as a diuretic in combination with Atenolol and Lisinopril because I

am having great difficulty with ACTH as my present diuretic.

 

Severe feet, leg, hand and arm spasm and weakness are making it difficult to function

on ACTH, Lisinopril and Atenolol.

 

Thank you for answering.

Hi Mary,

Aldactone, lisinopril, and atenolol can be used in combination to lower blood pressure. The combination of aldactone and lisinopril has the potential to caused elevated potassium levels in the body; however, this is a commonly used combination of medications. As long as your physician is monitoring you regularly, it is a fine regimen to use. You may also find this link helpful: http://www.healthcentral.com/high-blood-pressure/find-drug-226568-73.html.

Thank you for your question!
