Hi doctor,

I am currently taking Lisinopril for high BP. May I use a salt substitute to reduce magnesium level? Can I take Melatonin while on Lisinopril?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Yes, I suggest Melatonin can be consumed along with Lisinopril. Consult your doctor, discuss with him or her and then take the medicine with consent.
  • It is not advisable to use a salt supplement with Lisinopril, as it can cause hyperkalemia (high potassium level in the blood).
  • The salt supplements are potassium based, so you need to get a magnesium based one.
