Hi dolores,

There is actually an interaction between the three of these medications. I wouldn't necessarily call it dangerous if you're taking each medication as directed by your doctor, but just for your information, the interactions state the following:

Applies to Propranolol and Amlodipine:
"MONITOR: Additive reductions in heart rate, cardiac conduction, and cardiac contractility may occur when calcium channel blockers are used concomitantly with beta blockers, particularly in patients with ventricular or conduction abnormalities. While this combination may be useful and effective in some situations, potentially serious cardiovascular adverse effects such as congestive heart failure, severe hypotension, and/or exacerbation of angina may occur. The proposed mechanisms include additive slowing in AV conduction, reduced cardiac contractility secondary to beta-blockade, and decreased peripheral vascular resistance secondary to calcium channel blockade. In addition, some calcium channel blockers may inhibit the CYP450 metabolism of hepatically metabolized beta blockers, resulting in increased serum concentrations.

MANAGEMENT: Close clinical monitoring of patient hemodynamic response and tolerance is recommended if a calcium channel blocker is prescribed with a beta blocker, and the dosage of one or both agents adjusted as necessary. The same precaution should be observed when beta blocker ophthalmic solutions are used, since they are systemically absorbed and can produce clinically significant systemic effects even at low or undetectable plasma levels."

Applies to Amlodipine and Lisinopril:
"Calcium channel blockers and angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors may have additive hypotensive effects. While these drugs are often safely used together, careful monitoring of the systemic blood pressure is recommended during coadministration, especially during the first one to three weeks of therapy."

I hope this info helps!
