Meds for kidney stones low-level high blood pressure

66-year-old, resonably healthy, normal weight, female now taking 10 mg lisinopril daily for BP with very good results.  Without lisinopril, bp was running about 145-90 or 95.  Also taking 10 mg Lipitor daily.  Developed kidney stones. Took 24-hour urine test and was told that I was "spilling calcium".  Unable to collect the one stone that was passed.  Question:  Do urologists suggest taking diuretic plus a bp med or a combination drug such as Maxide?

For calcium stones, thiazide diuretics like hydrochlorothiazide (Maxide) or chlorthalidone have been shown to reduce the incidence of calcium stones.  

Use of these medications alone, or in conjunction with other BP meds - like an ace inhibitor - can be done to help control blood pressure as well as reduce the incidence of stones.

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
