BP Meds and Vitamins

I'm currently taking 40mg of Lisinopril and 50mg of Metoprolol. Is it safe for me to take Magnesium, Vitamin D, Vitamin C and Garlic along with these? I also take Celexa for anxiety.

Re: Does anyone else split the 5mg Bystolic pill?

I'm assuming you mean the Amlodipine Bystolic? I was splitting mine into 2.5mg segments but I would always crush one half because there was no score. I finally called my Dr and had him just call in...
