How does lisinopril interact with other drugs or foods?

If you take lisinopril with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), you risk kidney damage. This is especially true if you already suffer from kidney disease or kidney failure. Taking NSAIDs with lisinopril can also lessen lisinopril's effects. Talk to your doctor before using these or any other NSAID medications with lisinopril: ketoprofen; ibuprofen; etodolac; celecoxib; oxaprozin; meloxicam; nabumetone; diclofenac; naproxen; indomethacin. When used with diuretics, lisinopril can increase the risk of dangerously low blood pressure. If you are taking any of these diuretic medications, your doctor may adjust your dosages and monitor you carefully for drops in blood pressure levels: furosemide; hydrochlorothiazide; or torsemide. If you are taking potassium supplements or potassium-sparing diuretics with lisinopril, blood levels of potassium can become too high and endanger your health. Talk to your doctor about using lisinopril with any of these drugs: triamterene; amiloride; spironolactone. Talk to your doctor about taking salt substitutes with lisinopril, since they often contain potassium. If you are taking lithium with lisinopril, you may experience increased lithium blood levels. Your doctor may want to monitor you more closely if you are using lisinopril with lithium.
