Is it ok to take this med if you take linsiopil ? ## Hello, Faye! How are you? You should only take them together, if your doctor has specifically instructed you to do so. Lisinopril can increase the levels of potassium in your body, so taking them both creates the risk of your accumulating too much, which can be just as dangerous as not having enough in your body. Klor-Con is known to be very harsh on the stomach and should be taken with food, as listed by the FDA.
