Hello

PK :

Welcome to just answer

PK :

Yes ,both these drugs can be taken together as they have an additive effect in lowering blood pressure . Thus this combination can be prescribed when we want to lower blood pressure and no single drug works well .

PK :

Though we need to monitor the blood pressure especially in the first two weeks to ensure the blood pressure does not fall too low.

PK :

I hope you have gone through the answer .
