Can I take lisinopril, hydrochlorizide, with Augmentin?

The only possible drug interaction between lisinopril (Zestril), hydrochlorothiazine (HCTZ) and Augmentin (amoxicillin, clavulanic acid) does not involve the antibiotic. 

The blood pressure and diuretic tablets can have a slight interaction. Although an interaction is possible, these drugs may be used together. Anti-hypertensive drugs (like lisinopril) and diuretics (like HCTZ) can both be used to treat high blood pressure. If the blood pressure drops too low while taking these medications, you may become dizzy or feel faint. To limit this interaction, do not stand or sit up too quickly.

Contact your prescriber if you have dizziness which does not go away. Take the antibiotic until finished. You may take this with food to reduce the chance of stomach upset or diarrhea.
