User avatar Hi there -

Tylenol (acetaminophen) is fine with Lisonpril/HCTZ, no interactions. What makes Tylenol PM a sleep aid is a small amount of diphenhydramine (the active ingredient in Benadryl). Again, no problem there. You may feel more sleepy at night after taking Tylenol PM while taking Lisinopril/HCTZ, simply because one of the more commonly reported side effects of Lisinopril is drowsiness (also lightheadedness). If you're going to sleep anyway, this shouldn't be a problem.

Hope this helps.
